Jaguars beat Houston 29-7 in season opener

While it was all Jaguars in the first half, leading 19-0 into the break, it wasn't all great, as star wide receiver Allen Robinson had to leave the game with an injury.

Jacksonville has a winning record for the first time since Week 1 of 2011. Imagine the scene in NRG Stadium for that. If so, it's possible Robinson would be lost for the remainder of the season.

After suffering an terrible 29-7 home loss to Jacksonville to open the 2017 National Football League season, it's hard to find any positives to take away from the game.

It's hard to fault Robinson for his drop in production since quarterback Blake Bortles threw for 523 fewer yards and 12 fewer touchdowns than he did in 2015.

Leonard Fournette: Fournette was the real deal in his Jaguars' regular season debut.

For the Texans, 2016 was another year in which they were carried by their defense to a record just good enough to win the AFC South.

Watson came in and sparked the Houston offense to open the second half, leading the team to its only points of the game to open the third quarter. Houston still has a steady back in Lamar Miller, who had 1,073 yards a year ago.

The former LSU All American also caught three passes for 24 yards.

There are plenty of reasons as for why Watt garners so much praise from fans and critics alike, but majority are in relation to his on-field performances and statistics.

Watt appeared in just three games last season before suffering a season-ending back injury.

Watt raised more than $31 million for hurricane relief efforts after Hurricane Harvey devastated the region last month. Defensively, the main question is will this finally be the year that Texans fans can see J.J. Watt and Jadaveon Clowney on the field at the same time wreaking havoc on opposing offenses? The game is taking place in Houston, Texas, which is still reeling from a devastating hurricane that has still left some areas flooded. Houston is 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 division matchups and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall while the under is 9-4 in their last 13 home games. The defense, especially, which is led by Watt.

"I appreciate him and sorry, Jimmy, you can look out for an email from me here as soon as practice is over", Watt said. "I'm going into this game extremely confident". Get $60 worth of FREE premium member picks.
