Texans face another MVP when Jackson, Ravens come to town

Pity the Houston Texans, who opened their season trying to subdue one former NFL Most Valuable Player before being scheduled to take on Lamar Jackson in Week 2.The Texans (0-1) will try for better results on Sunday afternoon when they host Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens (1-0).Houston struggled mightily to contain Patrick Mahomes in the season opener on Sept. 10, with the 2018 NFL MVP throwing three touchdown passes to lift Super Bowl champion Kansas City to a 34-20 victory.While Mahomes flourished, Deshaun Watson had his issues in his first game without DeAndre Hopkins. The four-time Pro Bowl wide receiver was traded to Arizona in the offseason.Watson threw for just 253 yards with a touchdown and an interception against the Chiefs. He also was sacked four times. That might be considered a mild disturbance considering he was taken down six times and limited to just 169 passing yards in Baltimore’s 41-7 romp over Houston on Nov. 17.”It didn’t go so well last year,” Texans coach Bill O’Brien said in a conference call. “We need to play a much more disciplined football game on Sunday than we did last year.”O’Brien likely was pleased with what he saw from Will Fuller V, who is expected to carry a bigger responsibility in the absence of Hopkins. Fuller recorded team-leading totals in receptions (eight) and receiving yards (112) against the Chiefs.”He’s a guy since coming into the league – high yards per catch guy, excellent contested catch guy,” Ravens coach John Harbaugh said of Fuller. “He’s a go-to receiver for sure, very talented, very fast. They have a number of good receivers, all high-end receivers.”The conversation about high-end players on the field Sunday has to include Jackson — and the Texans know it.
