The NFL is active during the Christmas period as the Houston Texans will clash with the Jacksonville Jaguars at NRG Stadium.
Jacksonville Jaguars Form
The Jaguars are heading into this game on a poor recent record. They have lost 7 of their last 9 games. Yet, they can still play spoiler in this game.
Cody Kessler is playing solid as he is completing 64.9 per cent of his passes for 709 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.
On the offensive side of the game, the Jaguars have an average of 111.9 yards per game. Their main offensive weapon is Leonard Fournette with 439 yards and a total of 5 touchdowns.
On the defensive side of the game, Jacksonville has an average of 19.7 points allowed with 309.4 yards per game. Telvin Smith is the main defensive man as he leads the Jacksonville Jaguars with 124 tackles.
The Texans are heading into this game knowing that they need a win here. That way that can keep their chances alive for a top-two seed. Yet, it seems that the team is playing well lately. The Texans have 5 wins in their last 6 home games. They are the favourites heading into this game and they will aim to get the job done.
On the offensive side of the game, the Texans have an average record of 125.8 yards per game. Lamar Miller is the main weapon as he leads the team with 917 yards and 4 touchdowns so far.
On the defensive side of the game, the Texans are allowing an average of 20.9 points and 358.1 yards per game.
Also, Zach Cunningham leads the Houston Texans with 101 tackles in total so far this season.
The Jaguars have been in a poor form in a recent week. However, they won their last game and they have a chance to win this one too. Moreover, they will aim to keep the momentum in this game. However, that will very hard as the Texans need this win. The Texans have been dominant at home lately and they have better offence compared to the Jaguars. I expect a convincing win from the Texans.
