The 4-4 Texans travel to Jacksonville to take on the 4-4 Jaguars Sunday @ 1pm EST.
While both teams are only 1 game out of 1st place in the highly contested AFC South, the lack of consistent play from the defense makes both of these teams seem more like pretenders than contenders, yet here they are playing what could be a meaningful game in mid-November.
This could be an entertaining game, but if you're interested in sound secondary play, turn the other way and cough. A must-win game for both teams if they are to put together a playoff resume (though I don't see either of them hitting those heights).
The Jaguars are a 1.5 point favorite at home. I don't know what the over is in this one but it probably doesn't matter. Just take it, whatever it is...
Our own Jason Braddock is here to break the game down for you.
