The Houston Texans will visit the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday Afternoon from TIAA Bank Field. Both of these teams are 2-11.

The Jaguars are coming off of a 20-0 shutout loss against the Titans last Sunday

Rookie Quarterback, Trevor Lawrence was pressured the entire contest. Lawrence completed 24 out of his 40 passing attempts for 0 touchdowns to 4 interceptions. 

Head coach Urban Meyer was fired on Thursday morning without finishing his first year with this team.

Trevor Lawrence, the No. 1 player taken in the 2021 Draft, has struggled as he adjust to the NFL. There is potential down the line but this year he has thrown for 2,735 yards for nine touchdowns and 14 interceptions. He has a QBR of 32.1.

The Jaguars offense averages 303.1 yards a game which is 30th in the league. They are scoring 13.8 points per game as they give up 357.2 yards and 26.2 points per game to their opponents. 

The Texans are coming off a 33-13 loss at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks in their last game. Houston rookie quarterback Davis Mills threw for a career-high 331 yards and a touchdown starting in place of Tyrod Taylor.

Davis Mills looks like he will be the starter for the foreseeable future. He has thrown for 1,737 yards with 8 touchdowns and 8 interceptions on the year. He has a QBR of 29.3. 

The Texans offense averages 264.2 yards a game which is 32nd in the league. They are scoring 13.6 points per game as they give up 384.7 yards and 27.4 points per game to their opponents.

The Texans are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings in Jacksonville and are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings. Both of these have been abysmal this season but the Texans seem to be in a better direction. The team is excited about Davis Mills as the new starter and should want to come out and get the win. After firing Urban Meyer this week, the Jags will look towards next season, and have nothing invested in this match up. I’ll take the points with the Texans.
