The NFL season is nearing its final stretch! Let’s preview the upcoming Jaguars vs Texans AFC South bout. Houston has been scorching hot lately, and has the chance to take over the division lead in this matchup.
How to Watch
Jacksonville bounced back from their loss to the 49ers last week with a triumphant win over the Titans. They improved to 7-3 on the season, remaining in sole control of the AFC South division. That’s on the line this week, with a matchup against the 6-4 Texans who beat the Jaguars back in Week 3. Jacksonville is currently 1-3 against teams above .500, looking to prove themselves and get revenge in this week’s game.
The Texans continued to impress on Sunday, picking up their 3rd straight win. They’ve now gone 6-2 over the last 8 weeks, and have a key opportunity to claim the division lead this week against the Jaguars. They dominated them in Jacksonville for their first win of this season back in September, and will use that as the blueprint for success in this game. CJ Stroud continues his prolific season as a truly sensational rookie QB.
Everything is leaning in the direction of the Texans winning this game. They are red-hot and on a 3-game winning streak. They already beat the Jaguars by 20 points on the road, making a matchup at home seem even easier. That being said, those indicators are often a trap. Teams are far more likely to split divisional series than sweep them, and the Jaguars are the more complete team overall. I see them winning here.
