#NYJvsHOU Predictions

Chris Ivory Ranks 5th in the League in Rushing Yards Per Game


New York Jets: The Jets' defense is due for a big game, and they should have one against T.J. Yates, who likely will replace Brian Hoyer. The Jets are 5-0 when forcing at least two turnovers. That will become 6-0 Sunday. Jets 27, Texans 14. -- Rich Cimini

Houston Texans: Fitzpatrick's passer rating, Total QBR, completion percentage and touchdown-to-interception ratio are all better when he plays against teams that discarded him.Jets 19, Texans 13*. -- *Tania Ganguli

The Texans finally remembered how good they are on defense by smothering the Bengals last week. Doing the same to the offense-challenged Jets shouldn't be a problem. Finding offense themselves will be a huge problem.

Ryan Fitzpatrick had a thumb issue for the Jets with Brian Hoyer having concussion issues for the Texans. Geno Smith against T.J. Yates could be the matchup. I still like the Jets here because of their defense.

Of the players with the most receiving touchdowns since 2012, two Jets are in the top five: Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker. Let's see if Johnathan Joseph and company can play lights-out like they did in Cincy. #NYJvsHOU

The Texans are coming off a short week, a Monday night road game, and have uncertainty at the quarterback position with Brian Hoyer working through the concussion protocol. The Jets have had 10 days off and time to properly prepare and gameplan.

…Here's Yates becoming the Texans' third starter of the season, and facing a Jets team quarterbacked by Ryan Fitzpatrick, who's on his fifth NFL team.
