Houston Texans head coach Gary Kubiak likes what he sees in the Jacksonville Jaguars rebuilding project. Kubiak spoke to reporters on a conference call in advance of this Sunday's game.
"I think they’re doing a hell of a job," Kubiak said on the call. "Obviously they’ve got a new head coach and some changes on offense. They’ve been very, very good defensively giving us fits ever since I’ve been here. They’ve always had quality special teams."
Jacksonville lost its season opener in dramatic fashion, falling to the Minnesota Vikings on the road in overtime.
"Sitting there I am sure they’re saying we should be 1-0 with what happened to them last week," Kubiak said. "I think they’re like everybody else in this league. They’re difficult to handle."
Sunday's game will be the first AFC South contest for both teams.
