Week 15: Jacksonville Jaguars at Houston Texans
The only reason the Jaguars lost to the Texans in Week 10 was because of a Blake Bortles pick-six that game the Texans an edge. Even with that edge, the difference in the game was just three points.
Week 10 was at home for the Jags while Week 15 will be in Houston. It’s one thing to fight a division rival tough at home, but it’s something different to walk into their house and try and keep things close.
The Texans feature a top-five defense. Unlike the Vikings, however, they also feature a premier rushing attack. The Texans can control the pace of this game and progressively move down the field with relative ease.
While it’s possible this game could go either way even with that formidable defense, the edge should be given to the Texans. They’ve bullied the Jags in recent years and, like the games before this, will be fighting to make a case for the playoffs.
Jaguars predicted record after Week 15: 3-11
