Default Jacksonville Jaguars @ Houston Texans. 11/18. Noon. **Official GameDay Thread**

Game 1 of a Sunday-Thanksgiving Doubleheader



Quote:
Tied for the NFL's best record, the Houston Texans continue to inch closer to a second straight AFC South crown.

A matchup against the division's worst team seems unlikely to slow them down.

The Texans aim for a fifth consecutive victory over the visiting Jacksonville Jaguars, who try to avoid matching their longest losing streak in franchise history Sunday.

Houston (8-1) made quite a statement last Sunday night, pulling out a gritty 13-6 win at Chicago to remain two games ahead of second-place Indianapolis in the division. While the Texans were limited to a season-low 215 yards, their stifling defensive unit came up huge again with a season best-tying four turnovers.

"The more ways you find to win in this league, you get more confidence," coach Gary Kubiak said. "Things like that give you a chance to be a great team. There will be nothing false about what we are when we get there at the end because we've been in some tough situations. And the more we handle them, the better we get."

Giving up averages of 281.6 yards and 15.9 points to rank second and third in the league, the Texans made things especially difficult on the Jaguars (1-8) during a 27-7 road win Sept. 16, holding them to a franchise-low 117 yards.

While Houston has outscored Jacksonville by an average of 13.5 points during its run in this series, Kubiak isn't overlooking Sunday's matchup.

"We've got to get ready for a division opponent real quick," he said after last weekend's win. "It's just part of the maturing process if you want to be good enough to someday put yourself in the position to win a championship. I think we're growing up from that standpoint."

What I want to see:

Get Schaub some early throws

Last week, he only completed 12 of his 24 attempts vs. the Bears. Get him some confidence with some screens, short throws to Dre, etc.

Make the Jaguars offense lose any and all confidence before it even starts

While the Jags aren't exactly boiling with confidence, this is still the NFL. One thing you see a lot is a team gaining said confidence when a few things go their way. 3 and outs, turnovers, and force them into mistakes.

Run Arian/Forsett, etc...but first, test them up top

Texans need to find a way, with there being 2 games in one week, to shove the Jags aside early. So with that, let's see if we can go deep a couple times. Likely won't happen because JAX features a ton of 2-deep coverage.

No such things as trap games

And that is true in the NFL. Treat it as such, and respect your opponent in this league.

Treat this like any other game. This is a DIVISIONAL GAME, ladies and gents. Also, don't forget that the goal does not change. 1-0 every week (although we have 2 games this week...that mean 2-0 this week??? Ha). Let's go in here, handle business, and shove aside all this "trap game" bs. LET'S MUTHA****IN' GO, TEXANS!!!

Quick turnaround after this game to the first of 3 straight road games beginning Thursday @Detroit.

Hoping for an injury free Sunday, with a W.

I am looking forward to the Texans to attack Jags early and putting away the game by half time and rest our starter for Detroit game.

Go Texans!!!

There's a 10% chance of rain, according to weather.com. 10 freakin' %. Any excuse, I guess.

Nick Scurfield, in one of his posts on the Texans' site said it would be closed every game if Kubiak had anything to say about it. He likes the roof closed. Sounds like they might have asked for his input.

Sorry about no link but kinda pressed time wise as I'm doing pre-game prepare for buffalo wings for game time.

The game will not be shown in Lubbock. Apparently the network decided that folks around here would rather watch the Cowboys suck some more.
