The Houston Texans have scored a touchdown in each of the first three quarters of Sunday’s game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. On a controversial play involving an expired play clock, Deshaun Watson connected with Willer Fuller for a 77-yard touchdown play on 3rd-and-sixth.
With the score, the Texans expanded their halftime lead 27-16 with 1:21 left in the third quarter. Watson’s connection to Fuller was his second touchdown pass of the day against the Jaguars.
Houston’s latest scoring drive was the result of Vernon Hargreaves III’s interception on Jacksonville’s rookie quarterback, Jake Luton.
The Jaguars came into Sunday’s game against the Texans with Luton starting in place of the injured Gardner Minshew. While Luton has had a solid debut, the rookie quarterback has nearly thrown three interceptions — all slipping between the hands of the Texans’ defenders.
After the Texans’ touchdown drive, the Jaguars scored a field goal to cut within Houston’s lead 27-19 enter the fourth quarter.
