Jags @ Texans

Recommended Posts



The Texans beat the Jaguars in Week 7, 20-7, giving them an 11-4 record against Jacksonville since 2011. Each of the seven seasons over that span has ended with one team sweeping the other, with Houston doing so five times (2011, 2012, 2014, 2015, 2016) and the Jaguars doing so twice (2013, 2017).

After losing all seven of their games in October and November, the Jaguars won for the second time in four games this month with a 17-7 victory in Miami last week. Jacksonville has held opponents to single-digit points in 10 games since the start of last season, four more than any other team in that span.

The Texans fell for the second time in three games last week on a last-second field goal in Philadelphia, 32-30, their NFL-leading seventh game this year decided by three points or fewer (4-3 record). Houston will win the AFC South for the third time in four seasons with a win on Sunday, and would have its first ever postseason bye if they better the Patriots' result.

Houston has six more wins than a season ago, tied with Chicago for the second-largest improvement in the NFL (Cleveland - +7). Jacksonville has five fewer wins than it did in 2017, tied with five other teams for the largest decrease in the league.

Leonard Fournette needs 21 rushing yards to reach 1500 for his career. In team history, only Fred Taylor (1955) and Maurice Jones-Drew (1709) have more through two NFL seasons than Fournette's 1479.

Deshaun Watson threw two touchdown passes and ran for two more last week, giving him 51 touchdowns responsible for in his career. He reached 50 in just 22 career games, tied with Daunte Culpepper for the fourth fewest in NFL history.

Wasn't really anticipating this game being the last one the Jags would play this season, when the season started.  Football comes at you fast, I guess.

I sure hope the Jags win this one to sew maximum chaos in the playoff race.
