WATCH: Leonard Fournette plows through Texans D for first NFL TD

Jacksonville Jaguars rookie running back Leonard Fournette

The Jacksonville Jaguars drafted Leonard Fournette hoping that he could get the ball in the end zone. On Sunday, the rookie running back did that for the first time.

Fournette’s first score was not especially pretty, but it was darn effective.

The run was even more important when we consider that it was a fourth down. The Houston Texans’ goal-line defense had previously held strong in keeping the Jags out of the end zone.

While the ensuing PAT was no good, Fournette’s score put Jacksonville up 12-0 on the Texans.
