The Houston Texans took the trip east to EverBank Field to play the Jacksonville Jaguars today and came away with a 27-7 triumph. They have now taken four in a row from the Jags. Until some research backs it up, I will tentatively say this is the first such streak against any team in the AFC South Division.
Marc Vandermeer, voice of the Houston Texans Radio Network, mentioned during the game the video for this one will not be headed to the NFL Films vault. Winning ugly is something the best teams do, playing as if they are unconcerned about receiving any style points.
If today’s game were a performance during the Cold War Olympics, the East German judge would have given the offense a seven. Or maybe a 7.5 if the Russian judge had been generous with the vodka.
Winning with great defense and a persistent offense is a thing of beauty that many champions have relied on in the past. Whether this team is at the level of the 1990 New York Giants or the Baltimore Ravens of 2000 will be revealed over the remainder of the year.
Now let us take a trip through every unit and see how they graded out in Week 2 of the 2012 NFL schedule.
