NFL Odds Week 2: Texans Vs. Jaguars

The Jacksonville Jaguars will be looking to get into the win column for the first time in 2012 when they host the Houston Texans on Sunday, but oddsmakers don't love their chances. Jacksonville opened as a seven-point underdog, and that line has since moved to 7.5 or eight points at various sportsbooks.

Jacksonville is coming off a tough overtime loss to the Minnesota Vikings. Running back Maurice Jones-Drew is back in a starting role for Week 2, which should help the Jaguars' chances. The Texans, who are expected to contend for another playoff berth in the AFC, demolished the Miami Dolphins in Week 1.
