The Jaguars got back on track last week with a thrilling, last-second win over the Colts in Indianapolis. They found success with the running game again, which opened up the passing game for quarterback David Garrard. Given how badly the Texans struggled last week in Tennessee, Jacksonville’s defense should have no issues shutting down Houston’s suspect offense. And if the Jags can run the ball again, the Texans’ defense won’t be able to keep Jacksonville’s offense at bay for four quarters. We predict the Jaguars over the Texans, 23-7.
