Three Reasons The Jets Will Be Successful Against The Texans

With the Jets vs Texans approaching on Sunday, lets take a look at a few factors that the Jets should be able to exploit and leave week 11 with an 8-2 record. Let's get started.

3. Matt Schaub- The Texans QB spent the night in the hospital on Tuesday for a bursa sac injury. Shaub will apparently start against the Jets barring anything unforeseen. However, this isn't exactly the defense you want to play against when you're nursing a pretty serious injury. It's tough to game plan when you spend half the week in the hospital, so look for the Jets to take advantage of an usually ill prepared Shaub.

2. Andre Johnson vs Revis Island- Last year in week 1, Darrelle Revis began his All-Pro campaign with an incredible performance holding Andre Johnson to 4 catches for a slim 35 yards. This year, Revis has not matched last years performance due to his hamstring injury but as he has returned to health, so has his play. Johnson is hobbled by a bad ankle that could effect his play against Revis. Look for the Jets to stick Revis + help on Johnson all day, to shut him down. A beat up Johnson and a beat up Shaub can spell good news for the Jets.

1. TEXANS DEFENSE- The Texans defense is about as piss poor as it gets. While they do have bonafide stars in Mario Williams and Brian Cushing, Demeco Ryans has been lost for the season and the secondary is disgraceful. They are currently ranked 31st in the NFL in defense, allowing 409 yards per game and 28.6 points per game. I see Mark Sanchez having the best game of his career against this defense. If you remember, Sanchez had quite a first game last season against the Texans, and the defense has actually regressed since that point while Mark has improved. If the Jets can establish the ground game early and open up play action, this could be a high scoring affair.
