They rank in order 24/70, 48/70, 50/70 of all NFL guards getting at least 25% of team snaps.
Note that the majority (2/3) of Caldwell's grade (-2.6) was in the first game, against the Dolphins.
Their strength were in the two interior guys.

If Jones had played in this game, it's pretty much a given that he wouldn't have received a good grade.

Secondly, the Texans "protected" Jones quite a bit, especially in his first two appearances.
In the passing game, he received plenty of help.
In the running game, the combo block tend to stay with him a little longer.
On other occasions, he was asked to go to the second level or to cut block (more than Caldwell.) These two tasks don't expose the O-lineman as much.
