Jaguars vs. Texans 2012: Game preview, kickoff time, TV schedule and more

Al Messerschmidt

The Jacksonville Jaguars face the Houston Texans on Sunday. The two teams met in Week 2, and Jacksonville managed only 117 total yards.

The Jacksonville Jaguars face long odds on Sunday as they visit the AFC South-leading Houston Texans. The two teams faced off in Week 2, with Houston winning a 27-7 game that saw Jacksonville gain only 117 yards.

The Jaguars are averaging just 14.1 points this season, and Blaine Gabbert has nine touchdowns and six interceptions through nine games. Houston's defense is only allowing an average of 15.9 points per game, meaning the Jags offense is likely in for another long day. The lone Jacksonville score in Week 2 came on a Maurice Jones-Drew run, and he will again be absent.

Matt Schaub and the Texans' offense are having no such troubles. They average 27.8 points per game, the fifth-highest total in the league. Houston is coming off a close win over Chicago, 13-6, and may be looking to make a statement against an overmatched team. The Jaguars are allowing an average of 137.4 yards on the grown, so look for Arian Foster to make the most of his opportunities.

Game Time: 1 p.m. ET
Television Coverage: CBS
Odds: Texans favored by 15 points
