Texans @ Jets

Recommended Posts



The Jets won their first five matchups with Houston, all taking place between 2003 and 2010. The Texans have won the only two meetings since then, 23-17 in 2012 and 24-17 in 2015.

The Texans had their franchise-record nine-game winning streak snapped last week against Indianapolis. They're the seventh team since 2002 with a win streak of at least nine games which did not start or end a season -- three of them made the Super Bowl, one won it (2017 Eagles) and one is this year's Saints.

The Jets also snapped a streak last week, ending a six-game losing skid with a 27-23 win in Buffalo. The Jets improved to 4-0 when scoring at least 23 points this season. They're a league-worst 0-9 when scoring fewer than 23.

The Texans are averaging 136.8 yards per game on the ground, tops in the AFC and third most in the NFL (Seattle, Carolina). The Jets have allowed an average of 183.3 rushing yards over their past four games and rank 27th in the NFL in that category this season, surrendering 132.0 per game.

Deshaun Watson has thrown for at least 200 yards in six consecutive games, tied for the fourth-longest streak in Texans history. Only Matt Schaub (15 games in 2009, 8 games in 2010-11) and David Carr (9 games in 2004) have had longer streaks.

Sam Darnold returned last week after missing more than a month with a foot injury. He threw his 12th touchdown pass in the win, tying him with Geno Smith (2013) and Mark Sanchez (2009) for second-most by a Jets rookie all-time. Only Joe Namath had more with 18 in 1965.
