Whatever the opposite to game of the week is, this is it! Two 2-8 teams meet in Houston in a game that I can imagine neither actually wants to win at this point.
Houston picked up a huge upset win over the AFC leading Titans last week as Tyrod Taylor rushed for two scores on their way to a 22-13 victory. WR Brandin Cooks had his quietest game of the season in the win but, I expect he’ll be planning on a bounceback game against a Jets secondary that ranks dead last in the NFL for both points allowed and passing yards per game allowed. Cooks has had 5 or more receptions in 8 of 10 games played this season and had 65 or more yards in 50% of them.
I think this will be a closely contested game between two sides of similar ability, and I don’t think the possibility of only the second tie of the season is out of the question.
Spread: Jets +2.5
Game Prediction: Texans 23-23 Jets
Best Bet: Brandin Cooks over 4.5 receptions & 64.5 receiving yards @ 6/5 with Bet365 Bet Builder. [0.5]
