Who will win between the Houston Texans and the New York Jets? Our staff takes their best guess at the outcome and final score of the important AFC battle
The Houston Texans are coming off their best win of the season, and the New York Jets are coming off a game where they wore some of the ugliest uniforms ever. What does that mean for this game?
It means for Houston, they are finally getting things together, and for the Jets, well nothing. They just had ugly uniforms.
The Jets have put together a solid season behind former Texans’ quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and no one expected them to be 5-4 after nine games. For Houston, 4-5 is a blessing after they looked to be a mess early in the season, and defeating the previously undefeated Bengals on Monday Night Football last week will only give them more confidence coming into this game.
Unfortunately for Houston, they enter this game without their starting quarterback Brian Hoyer, who is still in the NFL’s concussion protocol. They will start T.J. Yates and it looks as if Brandon Weeden will be the number two after being claimed on Wednesday.
Fortunately for Houston, changing quarterbacks is the norm as they had four different starters last season while going 9-7. This season has been more of the same as Yates will be the third guy to start under center for Houston (Weeden..stick around, your time is coming if history is any indicator).
So who will win the game this weekend? The team with the former Texan and current Jet in Fitzpatrick, or the former Texan who is once again a current Texan in Yates? Our staff here at the Toro Times takes their best guess at the outcome of the game.
