Houston (9-4) at New York Jets (4-9), 4:30 p.m. Saturday on NFL Network. The first place Houston Texans, leaders in the AFC South, travel to the Meadowlands to face off against the New York Jets at Met Life Stadium.

Houston saw its 9-game win streak come to an end at home against Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts Sunday afternoon 24-21 at NRG Stadium. The Texans took a 7-0 lead after the first quarter and saw that lead vanish as the Colts scored 17 second quarter points unchallenged to take a 17-7 lead with them to the intermission. Houston would eventually make it a 3-point game with 2:37 left in regulation when WR DeAnrde Hopkins and Texans QB DeShaun Watson connected on a 7-yard TD toss to bring them closer. The Colts then proceeded to run out the clock and take the win over their AFC South rivals. While Houston outrushed Indianapolis 89-50, Luck threw for 399 yards with a pair of TDs, while Watson threw for 267 yards with a TD and no interceptions (Watson was sacked five times, Luck was sacked twice and threw an interception). The Texans were 5 of 15 on third down conversions (they were perfect on fourth down, going 2 of 2) and they would keep the ball for 31:57, while the Colts would keep the pigskin for 28:03, going 4 of 12 on third down tries.

GangGreen got revenge on Buffalo from their week 10 loss in the Meadowlands and took a 27-23 win out of Orchard Park last Sudnay. The J-E-T-S! JETS! JETS! JETS! trailed 14-3 at the end of the first quarter before they went to work on their AFC East rivals, trailing 17-13 at the half, then procceded to chip away at Buffalo and took the lead for keeps with 1:17 when RB Elijah McGuire scored on a 1-yard run. New York then held off a late Bills rally, as CB Trumaine Johnson picked off Josh Allen, giving the Jets the ball back and after a couple of kneeldowns, they would take the win. Buffalo outrushed GangGreen 176-78, with Allen, who threw for 206 yards with a pair of interceptions, leading the way with 101 yards and a rushing TD, while Sam Darnold threw for 170 yards and a TD for the Jets (Darnold was unsacked with an interception, while Allen was sacked three times). The J-E-T-S! JETS! JETS! JETS! were 6 for 13 on third down (they were 1 for 1 on fourth down) and kept the ball for 26:13, while the Bills ruled the clock and kept the ball for 33:47 and went 7 for 14 on third down tries in upstate New York.

GangGreen leads the series 5-2 and the J-E-T-S! JETS! JETS! JETS! have outscored the Texans 162-113. New York’s last win in the series came in 2010 in the Meadowlands by a final of 30-27, while Houston’s last win in the series came in 2015 n the Lone Star State, coming away with the 24-17 win. Houston’s favored by 6 and the over/under’s 41 1/2. Both numbers sound reasonable and this could very well be a somewhat entertaining game to watch. The Texans look to make to the post-season, while the J-E-T-S! JETS! JETS! JETS! look to stop them albeit temporarily. Texans win in the Meadowlands and cover the 6.
