These Jacksonville Jaguars are looking to win their second game in 2020.
Divisional games are never easy but sure are exciting. In Week 9, the Jacksonville Jaguars will take on the Houston Texans for the second time in the 2020 season. The last time they played, the Texans got their first win of the year while the ‘Jags’ dropped their fourth consecutive game.
This time around, things have changed a bit since their last game. At the time, the Texans had given then-head coach Bill O’Brian the pink slip and promoted Romeo Crennel from defensive coordinator to interim ‘head honcho’. Crennel promptly led the team to a 30-14 victory over this Jacksonville team.
However, that has been the only game the Texans have won since Crennel took over and things haven’t really improved since O’Brien was given the boot. In fact, their defense ranks among the worst in the league, and their offense hasn’t been good enough to make up for it.
That doesn’t mean the Texans defense lacks talent though. O’Brien left the team in a dire need of playmakers in his tenure after making many questionable personnel decisions, but some of their core players still remain with the team.
Crennel is trying to make chicken soup with what he has but as bare as the Texans roster is, there are still enough players that could give the Jaguars trouble in Week 9. Here are six of them.
