Houston at Jacksonville Game Preview
Why Houston Will Win
Jacksonville isn’t exactly a fully-functioning machine right now.
From the loss of head coach Urban Meyer to the inability to score, this has been a total disaster of a season outside of a fun trip to London and the Josh Allen on Josh Allen day against Buffalo.

What’s Going To Happen
Davis Mills is better than you think he is.
He’s surrounded by absolutely nothing to work with and yet he still fought the good fight last week against Seattle with over 300 yards through the air.
