Jacksonville beat Houston 31-24 on a “Hail Mary” touchdown pass at the gun that seemed to destroy the Texans spirit and season on November 14 in the previous meeting between the teams. The Jaguars must win this game to have a shot at overtaking Indianapolis in the AFC South Division.
Jacksonville has a record of 8-7 straight up and 9-6 with the football odds while going over the total 11 times. The Jaguars lost 4 of their first 7 games and coach Jack Del Rio was considered as good as fired before his team rallied with 5 wins in their next 6 games that followed. Jacksonville has lost their last 2 games, however, and is coming off a costly 20-17 overtime home loss to Washington last week.
Keep in mind the Jaguars suffered a similar late season December collapse last year after being in playoff position. David Garrard has shown big improvement over last year at quarterback with a 90.8 rating and 23/15 TD/INT ratio. Maurice Jones-Drew has 1324 yards rushing but is questionable for this one with a knee injury. The Jags defense has been a drag and ranks 26th for points against.
Houston has a record of 5-10 both straight up and with the odds NFL while going over the total 10 times. Houston was picked to contend for their first ever playoff spot and looked good when starting the season 3-1 but their horrible defense that is ranked 30th for points allowed proved to be too much to overcome.
The offense was a NFL football gambling asset that ranked 5th overall. Matt Schaub has a 90.4 QB rating with a 23/12 TD/INT ratio and Arian Foster has proven to be a steal as an un drafted free agent with 1436 yards rushing and 14 TD’s.
