The Jacksonville Jaguars didn't have any sustained drives on offense against the Houston Texans. Both of their scoring drives came from being setup with short fields by the Jaguars defense, and luckily the Jaguars offense was able to punch the ball in the endzone which is something they've struggled to do in the past. There was one drive however that looked like the offense was finally getting in rhythm and was the Jaguars longest drive of the day.

The Jaguars had gone 7 plays for 49 yards, having just crossed midfield. Rookie quarterback Blaine Gabbert hit on a few passes, including a 21-yard gain in the middle of the field to tight end Marcedes Lewis. After a 5-yard run by Deji Karim, Gabbert dropped back and looked to hit a quick gainer to Karim running across the field. The ball was deflected at the line of scrimmage however, being picked off by linebacker Brian Cushing, who was trailing Karim on the play. That turnover ended the Jaguars best drive of the day, right as the Jaguars were about to get into the redzone.
