Is it hyperbole to say that Week 15 will feature the race for the first overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft? Maybe but that’s one of the few intriguing plots that the matchup between the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Houston Texans will feature, as both teams are 2-11 ahead of the game.

The Jags are coming off one of the most frustrating losses in team history while the Texans have lost three straight games. On the bright side, at least one team is guaranteed to end the season with three wins, who will it be? Here are the odds and a final score prediction for the game.

Jaguars vs. Texans Week 15 Prediction.

The Jaguars are making it very difficult to root for them, as they have lost four consecutive games. Then again, Houston isn’t faring much better right now and they’ve already been shut down twice this season, one more time than the Jags. Both teams rank near the cellar in most meaningful categories and the Jags may be the favorites to win Sunday since they’re the home team.

This is the rematch of the season opener, which the Texans won. Tyrod Taylor was efficient, completing 21 of 33 passes for 291 yards and two touchdowns. The veteran signal-caller added 40 yards on the ground on four scrambles. But on Sunday, Davis Mills will be the starter. Head coach Dave Culley announced a few days ago the rookie out of Stanford will start for the remainder of the season.

Mills has shown promise but doesn’t have a particularly strong supporting cast and has completed 65.8 percent of his passes for 1,737 yards with eight touchdowns and eight interceptions this season. Meanwhile, Trevor Lawrence is coming off a game in which he threw a career-high four interceptions. Just like his Texans counterpart, Lawrence lacks weapons on offense and has played well in spite of the Jags’ offensive struggles.

If the Jaguars are going to win one of their four remaining games this season, this is it. They are the home team and their defense played well against the Titans. Then again, the Texans stunned the Titans in Week 11, so Jacksonville can’t afford to take them lightly.

Final score: Jaguars 17 – Texans 14
