The Houston Texans are set to face the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday in London. Here are three things we should expect from the Jacksonville.
Although the Houston Texans have defeated the Jacksonville Jaguars in each of the last three matchups, it shouldn’t be forgotten that the Jaguars are a division rival who would love to avenge their past losses to the Texans.
On top of that, the game will be played in Wembley Stadium in London, which is a stadium the Jaguars are very familiar with, as they’ve played six games in the stadium since 2013, posting a record of 3-3.
The Texans played the Jaguars earlier in the season in Week 2, and narrowly escaped with a 13-12 victory, which came down to a game-saving tackle by Justin Reid on Jaguars running back Leonard Fournette. This second matchup could be much more difficult for the Texans, which is cause for concern considering how close the first game was.
The Jaguars have improved over the course of the season, as they have gone 4-2 since their Week 2 loss to the Texans, and are averaging 25.5 points per game in each of their victories during that span.
By comparison, the Texans have also gone 4-2 since the Week 2 victory against the Jaguars, and have only one more win on the season than their opponent. The Jaguars are currently 4-4, whereas the Texans are 5-3 and in second place in the AFC South.
With the game guaranteed to have division ramifications, here are three things the Texans should expect from the Jaguars in the second matchup between the two teams on Sunday in England.
