Houston Texans – 27, Jacksonville Jaguars – 7This game mostly played out exactly as most fantasy prognosticators predicted, which meant lots of running for the Texans, and not much Matt Schaub (192 total yards) passing. Because the Texans are now a run first and good defense type of team, it’s hard to count on Schaub as anything more than a backup fantasy QB.Hopefully you knew better than to trust Blaine Gabbert (58 total yards, 1 TD) based on his seemingly solid Week 1. Gabbert went right back to 2011, throwing for 53 yards before exiting with an injury in the second half. If you’re counting on any part of the Jaguars passing game, may whatever deity you believe in have mercy on your soul.Owen Daniels (6-47) led the way in a low passing day, and Andre Johnson (3-21) was pretty much non-existent. There will be better days ahead for both players, but remember because of the Texans more run-heavy offense, these types of days are possibilities.Jaguars receivers? Nothing to see her...

Colts pass rushers should lick their chops: Blaine Gabbert expects to start on Sunday for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Gabbert was pulled from Sunday's 27-7 loss to the Texans in the fourth quarter. It initially was unclear if it was due to his 7-of-19 passing performance or an injury. The Jaguars later confirmed it was the latter, initially saying it was a leg injury, but since...
Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert left Sunday's 27-7 loss to the Houston Texans with a left leg injury in the fourth quarter. Gabbert, who was replaced by Chad Henne, walked off the field under his own power. The injury did not appear to be serious but no official status report was provided. Gabbert was just 7-for-19 for 53 yards, his lowest yardage total as a pro.
Andrew Luck and Matt Schaub led their teams to victory, but Jacksonville and Tennessee join hands as the battered teams of the AFC South.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The Houston Texans didn't need a barrage of turnovers to get rolling this week.
Arian Foster ran for 110 yards and a touchdown, Ben Tate added 74 yards and two scores and the Texans dominated from the opening kickoff in a 27-7 win at Jacksonville on Sunday.

Disappointed. Upset. Frustrated. Embarrassed. Gloomy.
The Tennessee Titans are wallowing in their emotions after an ugly and inept start to the season that has them winless after two games.
They knew the opening month would be tough, having to face Tom Brady and Phillip Rivers - with Matthew Stafford and Matt Schaub looming. Just not this tough.
The Titans have been dominated...
The Texans moved to 2-0 for the third season in a row, defeating the Jaguars 27-7. The Texans took a 10-0 lead in the first quarter and never looked back, cruising to a relatively easy victory over a division rival. This win is also their first step to a 6-0 sweep of the division, a feat that seems quite manageable after the first two weeks of the season.

There are plenty of players not living up to their draft status, but many others that are tearing it up each week. We look at several players from both sides and offer our analysis.
The Houston Texans are now 2-0 and look like a Super Bowl contender.Poor Jacksonville never stood a chance and they were only able to put up a meaningless touchdown on the Texans' defense. Blaine Gabbert continues to dissapoint as he was only able to put up 53 yards on 7 of 19 completions.The Hero: Houston’s Running BacksAfter a disappointing Week 1 performance for one of...
