The Texans will look to start their season 2-0, while the Jaguars are in search of their first win.
Second-year starting quarterback Blaine Gabbert looked much improved, after posting the worst QB Rating in the league last season. He completed 23 passes for 260 yards, two touchdowns, and no interceptions.
Maurice Jones-Drew will likely see more action in Week 2, after getting 19 carries for 77 yards last weekend.
Houston, meanwhile, is coming off a big 30-10 victory over the Miami Dolphins. The Texans defense forced four turnovers and managed three sacks, while Matt Schaub and Andre Johnson looked strong in their 2012 debut.
Last season, the Texans defeated the Jaguars both times the division rivals squared off. Jacksonville hopes this season will be different, but early betting lines have them as a heavy underdog.
Sunday's game will kick off at 1 p.m. ET.
