Texans start strong but must improve before trip to Browns

HOUSTON (AP) Quarterback Tyrod Taylor's solid debut for Houston helped the Texans overcome the absence of Deshaun Watson and start the season with a victory over the Jaguars.

Now the Texans will look to improve before a much bigger test this week when they travel to play the Cleveland Browns.

Taylor is getting another chance to start this year after he started only one game for the Chargers last season before being sidelined when a team doctor accidentally punctured his lung when giving a painkilling injection for a rib injury. By the time he recovered he had lost his starting job to Justin Herbert.
