Default Early Line: Texans -3.5 over the Jaguars

Coming off their first road victory of the year, Texan's fans have renewed hope that their team may be ready for a late season run. This week's contest at home against the Jacksonville Jaguars will leave the loser in sole possession of last place in the AFC South.

The bookmakers seem to think Houston is worth the typical home field spread of about 3 points.

http://covers.usatoday.com/data/odds.aspx

It still appears to this poster that this Texan's team is better than their record indicates. The offense has looked very strong, except for a steady supply of untimely turnovers. The defense stepped up last week and played like they were expected to coming into the season.

Will the Texan's continue to build on last week's success? Or, was that just a brief respite before they sink into their traditional position at the bottom of their division?

I'd feel better about this game if the Texans weren't so hurt at running back.

The Texans need to be able to run the ball. Save the Rosenchappa from himself and keep the defense off the field.

Default Re: Early Line: Texans -3.5 over the Jaguars

no question the key will be how our running game performs. if it is struggling then obviously the key will be how the qb responds to carrying the load. i'd like to see the defense have a repeat performance at least from an aggressiveness standpoint. i wouldn't expect them to yield as good of results against a better jags team but that mentality is key to us improving on defense.

this whole team was designed around playing the colts. maybe we should have considered that we have to play 30 other teams as well.

go texans.

Cant hardly believe myself , but I chose option A , the Texans win and cover ..... the Jag's are beat up up front on offense. I just hope Gerrard doesnt have another stellar day running the ball.

IIRC, they were beat up along the Oline the last time we played them at their house. The only thing we have going for us is home field, MNF and Battle Red.

This is McNair's shot to show off a product to prospective FA's and their agents. This is the biggest game of the Kubiak era. If we fall on our face, you can expect the media starting to question his tenure.

True, but after watching the beat down we gave the Broncos on NFLN last season. I have no doubt the players will be up for it. Especially Mr. Williams, it's his time to shine.

It's up to the coaching staff to put them in the position to win and we know which side of the ball wins games, right? Hint: starts with a 'D'.

How may prime time games have we played?

Dallas, Green Bay, Seattle and Denver come to mind. Am I missing any others?
