The Texans improved to 2-0 for the third consecutive season by winning their fourth in a row against the AFC South rival Jaguars, who started 0-2 for the third time in the last five years.

Jacksonville, which has never had a winning record after dropping its first two games, was far from competitive in the latest meeting.

The Texans gained 242 yards in the first half while building a 17-0 lead. Foster ran for 69 yards and a score. Tate added 49 yards and a touchdown. Matt Schaub, using mostly short throws, picked apart Jacksonville's defense.

The Jaguars were even worse on offense, finishing with a franchise-low 117 yards.
