Form has held true for Jacksonville, who sits at an ugly 1-9 but the same can’t be said for the Texans who after Super Bowl dreams are facing a 2-8 reality.
Both teams will square off in one of the worst games of the year this Sunday (at least record wise) but as we’ve seen before, games between teams with sub-par records don’t always translate into poor television.
For Jacksonville, they come off a 27-14 Week 11 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, though are just two weeks removed from their first victory of the season. Over-matched or not, Jacksonville has been playing better football in recent weeks, something they’ll attempt to show off in a trip to Reliant Stadium this weekend.
Meanwhile, for Houston, their season continues to morph into NFL hell. After opening the season 2-0, the Texans have dropped eight in a row and are dealing with both injury and inner-team conflict as we saw between Matt Schaub and Andre Johnson last week. Combine that with quarterback uncertainty and, well, you get a 2-8 team.
Sub-par records or not, the Jaguars and Texans should put on a sloppy though entertaining battle this weekend with the Texans finally getting back into the win column.
