Jacksonville felt they had turned the corner last week in their OT loss to the Vikings, only Sunday to be back to their woeful ways on offense in a 27-7 loss to the Texans.
Blaine Gabbert was just 7-for-19 for 53 yards and a touchdown. This after last week it appeared he was finally becoming the QB the Jags had been looking for.
Matt Schaub was 26-for-35 for 195 yards, but avoided any picks and was able to keep the teams offense in check all afternoon.
Arian Foster set the Texans all-time rushing record, going for 110 yards on 28 carries with a touchdown. Fellow back Ben Tate had 74 yards on 12 carries with two scores.
The Texans defense lowered the boom on the Jaguars offense, holding Maurice Jones-Drew to 60 yards on 12 carries with a touchdown on a reception.
Houston built up a 17-0 lead midway through the second quarter on a field goal, and touchdowns each by Foster and Tate.
Chad Henne played late for the Jags, going 2-for-2 for 23 yards.
The Texans improved to 2-0 for the third consecutive season by winning their fourth in a row against the AFC South rival Jaguars, who started 0-2 for the third time in the last five years.
Jacksonville, which has never had a winning record after dropping its first two games, was far from competitive in the latest meeting.
The Texans gained 242 yards in the first half while building a 17-0 lead, and on the day held the Jags to just 117 total yards of offense.
