Texans Vs. Jaguars Score Update: Houston In Full Control At Halftime

An 8-yard TD run by Houston running back Ben Tate helped pad the Texans lead, now at 17-0 after the first half. Tate and fellow rusher Arian Foster are both off to big starts as they have a combined 19 carries for 118 yards and two touchdowns.

Texans QB Matt Shaub is off to a very efficient day Sunday, completing 16 of 24 passes for 124 yards and no INTs.

Jags back Maurice Jones-Drew has been the only positive for a quiet Jacksonville's offense thus far, with nine carries for 42 yards. Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert was a non-factor in the first half as he completed just four passes for 13 yards.
