Oh, what a dangerous game this appears to be for the Texans. Houston is coming off of a game in which it looked awfully impressive against Miami, but this road game against Jacksonville might be a bit much to overcome. The Jaguars did look good last week, albeit against the Vikings, and they know that RB Maurice Jones-Drew is only going to be improving with each time that he touches the football and gets used to being in the game once again. The Texans are a great team; no doubt about that. But Jacksonville looks to be improved, and all of these years of domination in this series by Houston might be said and done with when push comes to shove. Don’t be shocked if this one ends in an upset of fairly high proportions. Remember that 68% of the public is backing Houston, yet this NFL pointspread is coming down.
Texans @ Jaguars Pick: Jacksonville Jaguars +7
Houston @ Jacksonville Score Prediction: Jacksonville 23 – Houston 21
