How to watch Jags at Texans NFL Week 1 on TV, live broadcast
The long wait for Jacksonville Jaguars fans is finally over.
After a brutal 1-15 season that saw a complete house change, the new-look Jaguars are set to usher in the 2021 NFL season.
The Texans have also implemented a new regime with head coach David Culley and quarterback Tyrod Taylor. Perennial MVP contender Deshaun Watson is still on the roster, but he is not expected to play after more than 20 women accused him of sexual assault in the offseason.
Suffice to say a few things, but the uniforms will look familiar to you when the teams go head to head in Houston. The two struggled mightily last season, with the Texans’ two wins over Jacksonville accounting for half of their winning tally.

The Jaguars secured the No. 1 overall pick, using it on Lawrence, who won a national championship at Clemson and led them to the playoffs every season. The Jaguars drafted his teammate, running back Travis Etienne, later in the first round, but a sprained foot finished his rookie season before it started.
James Robinson, the little-known back who shone in his rookie season, will likely reprise the lead role. DJ Chark and Laviska Shenault will be prime targets for Lawrence, as will Marvin Jones Jr., who new general manager Trent Baalke has signed from Detroit.
The defense will be led by linebackers Myles Jack, Josh Allen and K’Lavon Chaisson. The secondary will be reinforced by cornerbacks CJ Henderson and Shaquill Griffin, the former UCF who signed after four seasons in Seattle.
