THE TEXANS

Led at halftime for the second consecutive game. The Texans led Miami 24-3 at intermission in Week 1.

Held Jacksonville to 43 net yards of offense in the first half. That is the fewest yards allowed in the opening half in team history, bettering the previous mark of 50 yards allowed to San Francisco on 10/25/09. It was the second-fewest yards allowed in a single half in team history; Houston previously held San Diego to 41 yards in the second half on 10/28/07.

Limited Jacksonville to -4 net passing yards in the first half. That was the fewest passing yards allowed in a half in team history, betting the previous low of 0 net passing yards allowed to San Diego in the second half on 10/28/07.

There have only been 12 teams since 2000 to hold their opponent to fewer net passing yards in the first  half than the -4 than the Texans allowed to Jacksonville.

Scored on their opening drive for the first time this season, capping a 13-play, 66-yard drive with a 31-yard field goal from K Shayne Graham.. Houston scored on its opening drive nine times in 2011 and was 5-4 in those games.

Scored first for the first time this season. Houston opened the scoring 13 times in 2011 and went 9-4 in those games.

Outgained Jacksonville 115-43 in the first quarter and held the ball for 9:36.

Won the toss and elected to receive the opening kickoff.
