The fine folks over at Pro Football Talk have made their predictions for this weekend's AFC South showdown. Here is what Michael David Smith and Mike Florio are forecasting for the Texans-Jaguars matchup:
MDS’s take: Given that Florio is way ahead of me in our season picks contest, I’m tempted to take the Jaguars here because I’m going to need to hit on some big upsets if I’m going to have any chance of catching up. But even though I think the Texans might be due for a letdown after their big win in Chicago, the Jaguars are so bad that the Texans should beat them even if they turn in their worst effort of the season.
MDS’s pick: Texans 20, Jaguars 13.
Florio’s take: Didn’t this used to be an actual rivalry? It’s not anymore, thanks to the fact that one team has an 8-1 record, and the other is 1-8.
Florio’s pick: Texans 41, Jaguars 17.
