JAGUARS vS. TEXANS LIVE

Watch NFL Team: The Jacksonville Jaguars faces the Houston Texans at NRG Stadium in NFL Week 1. Here’s all the info you need to watch.

In an AFC South showdown, the Jacksonville Jaguars head to Texas to play the Houston Texans. The Jags lost both meetings last season, although the games were close as just four-points separated them in the two contests. Now they both look to get the edge in the race for one of the weaker divisions from a season ago.

How To Watch Jaguars vs Texans:

Houston was the victor in the south for a second-straight year in 2016 with a 9-7 record. They were able to win via a tie breaker with the Tennessee Titans. They did so despite the atrocious play of Brock Osweiler at quarterback. With him gone, they will turn to Tom Savage — who took over the job in the team’s 21-20 victory over Jacksonville in Week 15.

He relieved Osweiler and threw for 260 yards in the big win. Now he tries to hold off rookie first round pick Deshaun Watson.

The Jaguars are dealing with their own quarterback issues now as Blake Bortles is beginning to unravel — more so than usual. His interceptions have frustrated the coaching staff, and he even drew the ire of receiver Allen Robinson in training camp thanks to his inaccuracy. Helping him this year should be fourth overall pick Leonard Fournette. The LSU running back is a beast, and can do wonders in taking the pressure off the mistake-prone signal caller.

All the details you need to watch the game are below:

Date: Sunday, Sept. 10
Start time: 1:00 p.m. EST
Location: Houston, TX
Stadium: NRG Stadium

An AFC South showdown where each team looks to put a poor season behind them and start the year off fresh.

The Houston Texans and Jacksonville Jaguars both begin the 2017 season with questions at the quarterback position. How the question is answered could be the difference in the Texans making a deep playoff run and the Jaguars simply posting a winning record as the two teams face each other in their season opening game on Sunday (10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET, CBS, DirecTV).

The Texans (9-7 in 2016) captured the AFC South title despite benching one quarterback – Brock Osweiler – and going with Tom Savage, who hadn’t started in a regular season game in his career. Osweiler is gone, but Savage is back after holding off fast-rising rookie Deshaun Watson, the team’s first-round pick. Texans head coach Bill O’Brien has been quick to pull the trigger when his quarterback is slumping and with Watson waiting in the wings, Savage won’t get much time to prove himself.

Fortunately for the Texans, their defense led the NFL in 2016 and with the return of defensive lineman J.J. Watt, the unit should be better and able to carry the team to a few wins when the offense sputters.

Jacksonville (3-13 in 2016) endured yet another losing season – they haven’t had a winning season since 2007. First-year coach Doug Marrone is still trying to find a quarterback. Blake Bortles started the preseason at the top quarterback, but was benched in favor of Chad Henne in Week 3. Marrone then named Bortles as the starter for the regular season. Bortles throws way too many interceptions – 51 during his three NFL seasons.
