NFL Picks And Predictions Week 12: Texans Vs. Jaguars

The Houston Texans will have Matt Leinart under center against the Jacksonville Jaguars because Matt Schaub is on injured reserve. The Texans will continue to rely on Arian Foster and Ben Tate.

The Houston Texans have a pretty good hold on the AFC South division lead after 10 games. They are 7-3 while the Tennessee Titans are sticking around at 5-5. But Sunday's opponent and fellow AFC south member, the Jacksonville Jaguars, are just 3-7. This should be a win on the board for the Texans, but Matt Leinart begins his transition to being the team's starter now that Matt Schaub is on injured reserve.

However, that isn't deterring the experts from selecting the Texans to win this contest against the Jaguars. ESPN and CBSSports.com made it a clean sweep with the Texans this week (though ESPN had one abstention). The Texans will need to rely on Arian Foster and Ben Tate to lead the team to victory, but it is a doable thing.
