Jacksonville (+6.5) at Houston (12-30-18)


Recommended Posts

 1p.m. EST.....Andrew Catalon and James Lofton on CBS

over-under 40 at the NRG Stadium in Houston


The 'Nowhere man' Blake Bortles (228 of 375, 2,611 yards, 13 TDs, 10 INTs) returns at QB for the season finale but he'll probably have to go without Leonard Fournette who is injured most of the time.

Jacksonville has only scored 45 points in the last four games so they need the former 'Million Dollar Defense" to rise up and smack down Houston in a must-win game for the Texans. 

'Mr NRG' DeShuan Watson (320 of 470, 3,931 yards, 26 TDs and 9 INTs) wil try to get the ball to all-pro DeAndre Hopkins (103 catches, 1,425 yards - No. 1 in the NFL) but Hopkins will face Jacksonville all-pro CB Jalen "I talk better than I Play" Ramsey.

The worry for Houston is that Watson has been sacked 56 times (No.1 in the NFL) and one smack down from Calais Campbell (9 sacks) could turn this game around.


     Houston (10-6) MUST win...because either Tennessee (9-6) or the Colts (9-6) will and a 3rd division loss would drop the Texans to the 5th seed instead of the "4', '3' or possibly the '2'.

Jacksonville, without Fournette (and with Bortles) has the worst offense in the NFL but they have handed out crippling losses to the Colts and Miami in the last four weeks.

   I cant come up with a lot of scenarios where Jax beats Houston Sunday. The Jaguars lead the NFL with 1,044 yards in penalties..

maybe they'll just beat up Houston so they loses next week.  The Texas are playing early in the afternoon so they wont pull any starters unless they're inning big.

       The best bet here is the 'under'.  It s even money whether Jacksonville's offense scores at all.

Wait......It is possible to score TDS against Jags ?


Yes, if the QB decides to take off and run in a timely fashion, it is.


Luck’s hesitancy to run as a QB plus Reich’s pass happy ways leading to a bad game plan did us in that game. Plus, taking FGs!!! 


Oh well, we live and learn!!!

To be honest, i thought he was in.  Never saw his nee hit the ground.  Not sure what they saw or why they reversed it.  I missed the call after commercial.

They changed the call. Jaguars got a stop. 3-3 game

I have no clue how that was reversed. Terrible call

They just showed it again.  His LEFT knee was down.  I kept looking at the right knee.  It was a good call afterall.

    • Lions are bottom 10 vs the run, and not very good vs the pass either. I have no clue what we'll do.
    • Never said Rogers was great. Luck made good use of him though. Not painting a picture of anything based on Rogers. 
    • Speaking about offense now.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think the Bengals game was the first game since 2018 where the offense has shown Reich that it can come back from a real deficit.     He may gain confidence in what can now be done, and open up the playbook more going forward, and also allow Flus to take more risks.
    • You're ignoring a lot of basic stuff. Like 1. TY has never had huge separation, or needed it to be effective. He has the same separation this year as he did 5 years ago. 2. Cush impacts separation. It's why I listed it. Many of the WRs with high separation also have high cushion. 3. There are plenty of top WRs and top Rooks with separation rates below TY and Pascal. Like OBJ, AJ Green, Justin Jefferson, Amari Cooper, Will Fuller, DJ Moore, Tee Higgins, Agholor, Chark, Gallup, Galloday, Thielen, etc.. Several of those on track for ~1000 yard seasons. 4. RBs are not counted in Nextgen stats. It's all TE and WR. 5. As far as YAC stats, every team's overall YAC is impacted by RBs, who typically have higher #s. YAC is also highly impacted by scheme and routes run. TY and Pascal are ahead here than a lot of big names, even though they are not deep guys, or guys getting hit in space like slots.
