Khan: 'Laughingstock' no more as Jags clinch

After a slow start to this game, Texans WR DeAndre Hopkins is up to 80 yards and a TD on four receptions. Hopkins beat Jaguars CB Jalen Ramsey for the score. Fade route. Stack on top and separate to the ball.

Bortles finds an open Cole for TD (0:50)

It would be hard for the Jaguars to play a more dominant half of football than what they did against the Texans. The defense held the Texans to 58 yards, four first downs, and 0-for-6 on third down. They've sacked T.J. Yates twice and picked him off once. Meanwhile, the offense rolled up 289 yards and QB Blake Bortles has thrown for 246 yards and three TDs. The Jaguars are now just 30 minutes away from their first playoff berth since 1997.
