He has 685 yards passing, with four TDs and two INTs, in last two road games. Watson has 968 yards passing, with eight TDs and three picks, in last three division games. ... RB Lamar Miller has at least 80 yards from scrimmage in three of past four games. ... DE J.J. Watt has seven sacks and three forced fumbles in past four games.

DE Jadaveon Clowney has 10 tackles for loss and 6 1/2 sacks in his past 10 games against division teams. ... Jaguars swept season series in 2017 after dropping six straight. ... After being outscored 70-21 in consecutive road losses, coach Doug Marrone returned to training camp practices this week in effort to emphasize fundamental football. ...

Fantasy tip: Texans WR Keke Coutee worth starting against Jaguars' defense. Pro Bowl CBs Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye will cover Hopkins and Will Fuller, leaving Tyler Patmon on Coutee.
