Texans fans crossed their fingers for a win at home, and that’s exactly what they got. The Houston team barely squeaked by with a final score of 13-12 against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Texans took the lead with a successful 39-yard field goal from Ka’imi Fairbairn, ending the quarter 3-0.
Jacksonville evened the scoreboard with a successful 40-yard field goal from Josh Lambo, but Fairbairn came through one more time for Houston, ending the half 6-3 Texans.
This game certainly would not rank high on the excitement charts. With a scoreless third quarter from both teams, we headed on to the fourth.
Deshaun Watson ran in his first TD for the season, taking the lead again at 13-3. Josh Lambo had a 32-yard kick, doubling the score for Jacksonville at 13-6. With a pass from Gardner Minshew to DJ Chark, the Jags score and hope for a successful 2-point conversion to tie the game. However, this play failed.
The kickers for both Jacksonville and Houston took the spotlight today. Let’s hope for more action next week.
