It’s the battle for the second-overall pick between the Houston Texans and Jacksonville Jaguars.
The last time these two teams met was at the start of this 2021 season in Week 1. It was a completely different time, as Tyrod Taylor and Urban Meyer were still a thing for their respective teams. Fast-forwarding 14 weeks later, both of these teams limp into TIAA Bank Field on Sunday for the right to pick behind the Detroit Lions in the 2022 NFL Draft.
Houston steamrolled Jacksonville earlier this year, winning a 37-21 game that was never close. Any scenario is possible in their matchup on Sunday, given that the Houston Texans will be without Justin Reid at the Safety position on top of having rookie quarterback Davis Mills face off against fellow rookie Trevor Lawrence.
Both teams have nothing left to lose besides a draft spot, so what better than some bolder-than-usual bold predictions for these two teams?
Bold prediction number one: Jamal Agnew gets a return touchdown
Jamal Agnew made waves earlier this season by returning a kickoff for a touchdown against the Denver Broncos and then pulling off the rare feat of a “kick six” against the Arizona Cardinals to put them ahead at the halftime buzzer.
Agnew currently ranks 10th in the league in kick return yards with 525. He’s one of just three players to have a kick return touchdown this year. Agnew will take one to the house against Houston in some sort of fashion, and that score may just change the game between two struggling offenses.
