New York Jets vs. Houston Texans, first game of Saturday, the Texans want ten wins before the playoffs officially begin. The home team is not looking for anything officially, but the fans would be very happy if the Jets win this game against the Texans at home. The visitors lost last week and are hungry for a win, although the Jets also look for a win after the last home game against the Patriots.
Houston Texans: Flying high in the season.
The Texans this season have had an unprecedented recovery, after losing the first three weeks, the Texans won nine games in a row.

The last game against the Jets was in 2015 at home with victory for the Texans 17-24, but at that time the Jets were a totally different team than they are today.
Deshaun Watson has been supported by a good defense this season, his work as a QB backed by good numbers. 66.9% passes completed, 3298 yards, 22 touchdowns and 9 interceptions. Most of the interceptions (5) have been on the road for Deshaun Watson.
