Texans Vs. Jaguars Final Score: Houston's Defense Dominant In 27-7 Win

The Houston Texans improved to 2-0 on Sunday, winning with ease, 27-7, over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Houston's defense was dominant in the win, surrendering just nine first downs to Jacksonville in the entire contest. The Jaguars were an atrocious 0-for-9 on third down conversions.

Offensively, Houston dominated with the running game, rushing 48 times for 216 yards. Arian Foster rushed 28 times for a game-high 110 yards and added a touchdown. Ben Tate received his fair share of carries as well, running the ball 12 times for 74 yards and two touchdowns.

Matt Schaub was effective passing, completing 26-of-35 passes for 195 yards. Schaub did not throw an interception, but also did not throw a touchdown pass in the win.

Owen Daniels and Foster both had six receptions. Daniels led the team with 47 receiving yards, while Foster added 37.

Jacksonville quarterback Blaine Gabbert completed just 7-of-19 passes for 53 yards. Gabbert did throw one touchdown -- a five yard pass to Maurice Jones-Drew to open the second half.

Houston will face a big test in Week 3, as the Texans travel to Denver to take on Peyton Manning and the Broncos.
