On Sunday, the Houston Texans got another win over Trevor Lawrence and the Jacksonville Jaguars.
That win takes their win total up to three on the season, and it’s also where the Houston Texans are currently slotted to pick from in the upcoming 2022 NFL Draft. Stats tell a lot about a game, and there were some important ones to note.
Whether or not this win will affect the franchise’s attempt to rebuild down the road, it’s most likely too soon to tell. Texans fans were loving the success, while a smattering of others were begrudging the fact that they swept the Jaguars.
Let’s get right into them:
The number of career wins that Davis Mills has now, after starting 0-7 in relief of the injured, benched, and then the injured again Tyrod Taylor.
98, 2009, and 8
The number of yards that cornerback Tremon Smith covered on his historic kickoff return for a touchdown in the first quarter. It was also the team’s first kickoff return for a touchdown since 2009. Smith’s return is just the eighth kickoff return touchdown in team history.
Brandin Cooks went off against the Jaguars for his second-consecutive 100-yard receiving game. That pushes his total to four on the season, having gone over the century mark against the Panthers and Jaguars in Week 1. Cooks needs 54 more yards to eclipse the 1,000-yard mark.
The number of sacks allowed by the Houston Texans. It was one of their best outings of the year for an offensive line that’s allowed more than three sacks in a game seven times this season. The only time the Houston Texans didn’t give up a sack in a game was their upset win against the Titans a few weeks back.
