And yes, there was much to like.

"It was a awful day on offense, but it wasn't that much better defensively. we have a lot of work to do", coach Bill O'Brien said.

The Jacksonville Jaguars have lost their No.1 receiver, perhaps for longer than just Sunday.

Watt's appearance was his first for almost a year. "We're just trying to do anything to make this city proud this upcoming Sunday. It's going to be a very hard game, but we know it'll mean a lot to Houston for us to play well". That's a good football team that they had down there when Cam was there.

If we were giving out game balls in this article, it would go to the defense.

Watson became the ninth quarterback to play for the Texans in the past five seasons.

"I think it's going to be insane", outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney said. It also marks Watt's first game at the stadium since September 22, 2016.

The second-most striking statistic?

Leonard Fournette ran for 100 yards and a touchdown in his National Football League debut, and Jacksonville had a franchise-record 10 sacks and forced four turnovers to get the 29-7 victory, their first in a season-opener since 2011. Watt, Jadeveon Clowney and Whitney Mercilus got handled by the Jaguars' offensive line, which had really struggled in the preseason. Christian Covington, Joel Heath, Carlos Watkins and Brandon Dunn could all see an uptick in playing time within the front seven as the Texans use a committee approach.

Bell looked rusty and hardly like one of the NFL's best players on Sunday, gaining 32 yards as Pittsburgh turned to its defense and a late Ben Roethlisberger-to-Antonio Brown connection to hold off the Cleveland Browns 21-18. "I thought that Tom hung in there and played very tough".

"We're ready to come out blazing", outside linebacker Whitney Mercilus said. The Texans were stunned by the Jaguars in the first half and fell into a 19-0 hole, so they can't afford to have their best defender sitting on the sideline for any extended period of time. The Jaguars immediately drove 75 yards with quarterback Blake Bortles capping the drive with a one-yard touchdown pass to fullback Tommy Bohanon.

Coach Doug Marrone was impressed with his performance, but is stressing to him the importance of not letting opponents get under his skin. "Those guys are great players, obviously, but the plan is to go out there and get what we're trying to get done done".
