If the experts are to believed, Jacksonville has no shot against the Texans.
The Houston Texans will visit the Jacksonville Jaguars in an interesting Week 2 showdown between AFC South combatants, but if the experts are to be believed, Houston is the overwhelming favorite to leave Jacksonville with a victory.
All 12 of the ESPN experts selected the Texans to top the Jaguars, to go with predictions of a Texans victory from AccuScore and the ESPN Pick 'Em crowd.
Not surprisingly, the sentiment is mirrored at CBSSports.com, where all eight experts are going with the seemingly non-creative Texans victory. CBS Sports' Prediction Machine is also leaning the way of running back Arian Foster, quarterback Matt Schaub and the Texans.
And to top it off, the curated expert panel of three over at Yahoo! Sports is not taking any chances, claiming that the Texans are the favorite by a vote of 3-0. Yahoo! users also seem to think the Jaguars are fighting an uphill battle, choosing the Texans.
