Texans Vs. Jaguars Game Recap: Texans Pummel Jags, Win 24-7

Ben Tate and Arian Foster had big days, as the Texans beat the Jaguars 24-7 on Sunday. Tate found the end zone twice for Houston while Foster played the role of workhorse, rushing for 110 yards and a TD off 28 carries.

Houston jumped out to a 17-0 lead after TDs from Tate and Foster, and never looked back. The only blemish on the day for the Texans was allowing a 5-yard touchdown pass to Maurice Jones-Drew.

Fantasy Studs/Duds: Any Foster owners should be pleased after a big day from the Houston rusher. Owners of MJD were bailed out thanks to his TD pass, however he had a relatively quiet day, garnering 67 total yards.

Did They Cover?: The Texans were easily able to cover their line, which was -9 at Jacksonville.

Injury Report: Jags Quarterback Blaine Gabbert's day was cut short after he left the game with a leg injury. He finished the day 7-of-19 for 53 yards, a touchdown and a 62.8 rating. Backup Chad Hennethrew two completions on two passes for 23 yards in relief of Gabbert.

Next Week: The Jags will matchup against the Colts next week. Indy is coming off their first win of theAndrew Luck era. As for Houston, they will take on Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos next Sunday.

Blaine Gabbert Injury Brings In Chad Henne

Chad Henne is replacing Blaine Gabbert in Jacksonville as the Jaguars are getting beat down by the Houston Texans. Gabbert has an ice pack on his left thigh so it's actually an injury that's giving Henne his shot.

It's unclear exactly what the injury is or whether it's serious. Henne was brought on as a backup in the offseason, one of the better backup options in the league.

Gabbert has not looked great in the Jaguars game, completing only 7-of-19 passes for 53 yards and a touchdown. You couldn't blame the Jaguars if they decided to make a change at quarterback, injury or not. No interceptions is a good start for Gabbert but averaging less than three yards per completion is not.
