Jaguars at Texans: Staff predictions for Week 17
By Randy Gurzi
Ethan Lington, Staff Writer
Game: Jaguars (5-10) at Texans (8-7)
Prediction: Brian Hoyer is back starting, which personally I think is not such a great thing. For some reason he doesn’t know how to get the ball to DeAndre Hopkins, and Nuk’s production suffers with Hoyer under center. Weeden and Yates consistently found him for big plays downfield, and that trend MUST continue.
The defense should once again carry the team and give the offense plenty of opportunities for points. Look for a couple forced turnovers to be the turning point to clinching the AFC South on Sunday.
Maybe Hoyer will finally breakthrough his ineptness and against this weak Jacksonville team, lead the Texans to victory. I just think defense will rule the day and create points or turnovers to win it.
Final Score: Houston 27, Jacksonville 17
