Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Houston Texans Recap
October 18, 2015
The Jacksonville Jaguars hosted their divisional rivals the Houston Texans Sunday afternoon in an important AFC South Division gridiron battle. Both teams had lost every game but one to start the 2015 season, so another loss would almost end any of what were already feeble playoff hopes entering the season.
Texans quarterback Brian Hoyer rewarded the coaching decision to move him into the starting QB spot by hitting on 2-dozen of his 36 passing attempts for just under 300 yards. Most notable of those 24 strikes was the 3 that went for Houston TDâ€™s.
DeAndre Hopkins was on the end of nearly half of Hoyerâ€™s completions, a pair of those for touchdowns. Arian Foster was snagged the third TD pass, plus added some ground yardage to help keep the Jags defense at bay.
Speaking of defense, it was the Texanâ€™s D that really stood out on this Sunday afternoon. Houston picked off Jacksonville signal-caller Blake Bortles 3 times, twice by Andre Hal, one of those a pick-6 touchdown. While Houston won their second game in 5 tries, Jacksonville fell for another week to slip down to 5 defeats against their lone victory in 2015
