Houston Texans at New York Jets: Predictions, picks and odds for NFL Week 14 game

The Houston Texans (7-5) continue to be one of the best stories in the NFL, and they'll take their high-flying offense to the "Big Apple" to face the New York Jets (4-8).

The Denver Broncos no longer own the NFL's longest winning streak after the Texans were able to secure a big home victory. Even with the loss of Tank Dell, Nico Collins had a monster game for Houston while the defense was able to stop Denver just short of taking the lead.

Things continue to unravel for the Jets, as the ineffective offense once again doomed New York to lose its fifth game in a row. It's gotten so bad that there doesn't appear to be any answer at quarterback, and a loss here would likely put an end to any speculation of Aaron Rodgers returning this season.

Lorenzo Reyes: Texans, 27-9

I love Houston in this spot and as long as this is anywhere near a touchdown, I’d jump on in. The Jets, regardless of who is at quarterback, are incapable of scoring with consistency. The Texans can fly around the field.

Tyler Dragon: Texans 26, Jets 14

C.J. Stroud is having the best season for a rookie quarterback since Justin Herbert. Stroud figures to be a lock for NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year. Tank Dell’s season-ending injury stings, but the Texans still have capable receivers on the outside. The Jets have one of the NFL’s worst offenses in recent memory. The Jets have scored four offensive touchdowns in the last 88 drives.

Safid Deen: Texans 27, Jets 6

Imagine if the Jets had this No. 2 pick. C.J. Stroud is playing his way to rookie of the year and a potential playoff spot with the AFC South in reach. And no one knows what the Jets are playing for at this point.

Victoria Hernandez: Texans 24, Jets 10

The Texans proved last week that they are the real deal. Stroud has taken ownership of the team and it’s showing on the field. The Jets, meanwhile, dropped — not benched — Tim Boyle after he started two games and lost both. Beyond the statistics, camaraderie will be the difference here.

Jordan Mendoza: Texans 20, Jets 9

As is the case with the New York Jets, expect a low-scoring game that'll make it tough to cover the over in this one. Stroud and company will get some fits against what is one of the best passing defenses in the league, but they'll easily outplay whatever New York puts out on offense.
