Texans defense has Super Bowl look

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- J.J. Watt is right.

The Houston Texans don't miss Mario Williams.

That defense is just fine.

Anyone who has doubts should pop in the tape of the Texans' beat-down of the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday -- especially the first half.

Granted, the Jaguars aren't exactly a high-flying offense, but to hold any NFL team to four first downs, no third-down conversions and 43 total yards in a half is impressive.

By then, the Texans led 17-0 on their way to their second victory of the season, their first on the road. [Full recap]

With their running game, the ability to throw off it, and that defense, the Texans certainly have a Super Bowl look, even if it is early.
