With the help of Tremon Smith’s 98-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, the Houston Texans ended their three-game losing streak with a 30-16 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

Receiving the kick near the 30-yard line, Smith maneuvered past five Jaguars defenders for the score. It was the Texans’ first kickoff return for a score since October 4, 2009.

“It was the perfect kick,” Smith said. “It was just like we practiced it all week. I definitely owe them all something. I haven’t come up with it yet. But I’m going to get them something nice for just setting that up for me. I couldn’t do it without my blockers.”

Unfortunately, on the play, Jacksonville safety Rayshawn Jenkins broke his right ankle.

Texans’ rookie quarterback Davis Mills, meanwhile, won for the first time in eight starts. Once early in the game and once again late in the game, Mills connected with Brandin Cooks for touchdowns, the last one a 43-yarder.

“That was the dagger,” Mills said.

The Texans will host the Los Angeles Chargers next Sunday, while the Jaguars will play at the New York Jets.
