Join the BCC community for the first half of the Jaguars' Week 11 game against the Texans.

A team that is tied for the worst record in the NFL is traveling to face the team that is tied for the best. Only in Jaguars bizarro world would that be a little better than the idea of hosting the Texans at EverBank Field. But the Jaguars have played significantly better on the road and they'll need to play exceptionally well to beat, or even remain competitive with, the Texans.

The Texans are a team that runs to set up the pass and dominates opposing offenses with their strong defensive line, led by J.J. Watt. For the Jaguars to have any shot, they'll need strong play from their lines more than anything. Blaine Gabbert must be protected and Arian Foster must be stopped.

Houston is not going to be wearing its "battle red" uniforms in Week 11, but the team has insisted all week that Sunday's game is not one that will be overlooked.
