Jaguars vs Texans live The NFL announced the complete 2021 schedule on Wednesday, May 12, and the Jacksonville Jaguars are officially set to kick off their 2021 season in Houston against the Texans at 1 PM, which will also be their first divisional game.
The Jaguars finished with a 1-15 record in 2020 as they won the Trevor Lawrence sweepstakes with the No. 1 overall pick. With new head coach Urban Meyer and the addition of Lawrence, all of a sudden Jacksonville is one of the most intriguing stories heading into the 2021 NFL season. Obviously a 1-15 team had more problems than just the quarterback, so there is plenty of work to do throughout the roster. The Jaguars scored the third fewest points in 2020 and allowed the second most points, so there wasn’t a whole lot of success to be found on either side of the ball. This is a full-on rebuild, and Jacksonville now has thei most important position in the game locked down.
Jaguars vs Texans live The Jacksonville Jaguars are 2-7 against the Houston Texans since November of 2016, but they’ll have a chance to close the gap a little bit Sunday. Jacksonville’s bye week comes to an end as they meet up with Houston at 1 p.m. ET at TIAA Bank Field. The Jaguars are limping into the game on a six-game losing streak.
Jaguars vs Texans live Jacksonville came up short against the Los Angeles Chargers two weeks ago, falling 39-29. A silver lining for Jacksonville was the play of RB James Robinson, who rushed for one TD and 119 yards on 22 carries in addition to snatching one receiving TD.
Meanwhile, Houston lost to the Green Bay Packers at home by a decisive 35-20 margin. The Texans were down 28-7 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. The losing side was boosted by QB Deshaun Watson, who passed for two TDs and 309 yards on 39 attempts in addition to picking up 38 yards on the ground. Watson ended up with a passer rating of 157.80.
The Jaguars are expected to lose this next one by 6.5. Now might not be the best time to take Jacksonville against the spread since they’ve let down bettors for the past five consecutive games.
Jaguars vs Texans The losses bumped both teams down to an identical 1-6. Two offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Jacksonville is third worst in the NFL in rushing yards per game, with only 96.6 on average. Houstons have had an even harder time: they are stumbling into the contest with the fewest rushing yards per game in the league, having accrued only 84.9 on average. Yards on the ground might be real commodity in this one.
