Philadelphia Eagles @ Houston Texans 
TV: NFL Game Pass International

Houston +14

I do not care what you think about bad NFL teams, the amount of games that become blowouts are becoming fewer and further between.

It’s why, in games like this where teams have to go cross-country on short weeks, we should all be rushing to take the points for the dogs.

Honestly, who in their right minds foresees a situation where a team who will be unbeaten won’t take their starters out as soon as they go three possessions ahead?

They’ll play to win and they’ll do so by ensuring that they cancel any potentially disastrous errors. If Philadelphia just run the ball effectively, they’ll control the clock and risk throwing any turnovers which could cause the game to get out of hand.

Take Houston.

Under 45.5 Points

As previously discussed, the desire for Philadelphia to put up a forty-burger here is minimal.

On a Thursday, what you do is you minimalise your playbook and go with your identity first and foremost, because you haven’t had time to dig into the nuances of the opposition yet and concoct a gameplan whereby you exploit their weaknesses from film study.

This generally leads to non-events as soon by some of the sub-25-point TNF games we’ve had so far this year. I bet broadcasters are delighted.

Dameon Pierce to Score Anytime

One of these teams is diverse in the redzone and the other is not.

Now, in saying that, by picking a Texans player to score, you’re probably having your chances in terms of actual scores – but you’re pretty certain who’ll find the end zone when they do.

Yes, we could pick an Eagle and probably have three attempts to be right – but Hurts, Smith, Goedert, Brown and co are all as likely as each other to get paydirt.

Who’s the only conceivable scorer in the red zone for Houston? You got it.

Brevin Jordan – Over 17.5 Receiving Yards

The way to allude Philadelphia pressure is by turning to the quick game. With Brandin Cooks likely sulking, they can’t run those flanker screens to him. What they can do, however, is constantly dump off to the big ‘ol tight end Brevin Jordan.

He flashed last week and he should have no trouble in hitting this total given how likely they are to fire over the middle of the field.
