Texans face Jaguars in London Sunday


The Houston Texans had to brush their passports off for this Sunday's game.

The Texans will face a rival from the AFC South, the Jacksonville Jaguars in London. Coach Bill O'Brien knows this is an opportunity to introduce their brand of football to an audience that likely isn't familiar with it.

"I'd like the fans of England to know we have a bunch of guys excited to play in front of them," O'Brien said.

Deshaun Watson will be ready to play despite an eye injury that he suffered against Oakland last week. He's been to London before and says he's happy that he's going back.

"It's a dope opportunity, and we are actually looking forward to it," Watson said.

The Jaguars had high hopes coming into the season after signing free agent quarterback Nick Foles. But he got hurt in the first game of the season. He's been replaced by Gardner Minshew, whose unique look has given him a level of popularity he didn't think he would have. O'Brien says Minshew isn't a gimmick. He's a good quarterback.

"His team believes in him. He manages the offense very well. He's going to be a handful to go against. He's a challenging quarterback," O'Brien explained.

The Texans are coming off a 27-24 win over the Raiders. Be ready for an early start to your Sunday, and we aren't just talking about the clock changing. The game starts at 8:30 in the morning.
