NFL London Schedule 2019: Where to Watch Houston Texans vs. Jacksonville Jaguars, TV Channel, Live Stream

The NFL returns to London for the final time this season and as the Houston Texans take on the Jacksonville Jaguars at Wembley Stadium.

With the exception of the matchup between Chicago and Oakland earlier this month, the clash between the two AFC South rivals is arguably the one that carries the biggest postseason implications of those played in the British capital this year.

It could also be the most even of the quartet, as the Texans arrive into the weekend with a 5-3 record, while the Jaguars are one game behind the division standings at 4-4.

The Texans, who lost on their only visit to London in 2016, returned to winning ways in Week 8 with a closely-fought 27-24 home win over the Oakland Raiders, courtesy of yet another sensational play from Deshaun Watson.

Houston's signal caller finished with 279 yards and three touchdown passes, the last of which defied belief even by Watson's lofty standards.

The 23-Year-old tossed a pass towards tight end Darren Fells in the end zone for the crucial go-ahead but did so while almost unable to see after taking a cleat to the face, which resulted in a swollen left eye.

"I kind of threw it blind," the former Clemson quarterback told the Associated Press. "But I [...] assumed where he was going and kind of adjusted and let my arm guide it. I didn't even see the play until after the game."

Watson missed the festivities before Game 7 of the World Series—he was scheduled to make the "Play ball" announcement—in order to rest his eye but will be fit to play in London.

"I feel fine. It looks bad. It's going to look worse before it actually gets better, but I'm actually good," he was quoted as saying by ESPN.

"It's definitely a great opportunity, a great moment that the Astros and the organization was giving me, but I think the best way— especially with my season going on and us going to London—was to kind of rest up."

The Texans are likely to rely even more on their third-year quarterback after losing star defensive end J.J. Watt to a season-ending injury to a pectoral muscle.

While Houston has one of the elite quarterbacks on its hands, Jacksonville may have unearthed a rising star this season in the shape of Gardner Minshew.
The rookie made his first career start in Week 2 when the Jaguars lost 13-12 to the Texans and has since developed into a cult figure, thanks in no small part to his trademark moustache and the look of an extra from a 1970s Hollywood blockbuster.

However, while Minshew's facial hair has become a goldmine for social media memes, it should not take the focus away from the impact the rookie has had on the field.

The Jaguars signal caller leads all rookie quarterbacks with 13 passing touchdowns and a 98.8 passer rating and his duel with Watson, who ranks joint-first in the NFL with 13 touchdown passes and third in passing yards since the two teams met in Week 2, adds an interesting subplot to the matchup.

Wembley is a far more familiar surrounding for the Jaguars than it is for the Texans. This weekend will be Jacksonville's seventh trip to the UK—four more than any other franchise—and gives them the chance to improve their all-time record in Britain to 4-3.

More importantly, a third consecutive win would blow the AFC South race wide open.
