Projections: 17.20 points allowed, 2.94 sacks, 2.56 turnovers, 0.36 touchdowns

Step 1: Play the defense facing the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Step 2: Profit.

Jacksonville has allowed five different opposing defenses to score 10-plus FanDuel points this season, and it’s no surprise that one of those teams is their opponent this week, the Houston Texans. Back in Week 10, the Houston D/ST notched their their third double-digit FanDuel performance of the season with a 12-point effort in a 24-21 win over the Jaguars.

Houston is top-ranked defense this week as we project them to force the second-most turnovers and tally the third-most sacks. The Jaguars rank fifth in the NFL in pass play percentage at 63.57%, so there are always plenty of opportunities for big plays from the defense.

Vegas is on Houston’s side in this matchup, too. The spread currently has the Texans as a 6-point favorite after initially installing them as a 5-point favorite, and the game's over/under has dropped 1.5 points since it opened. The Jaguars are implied to score the second-fewest points on the main slate (16.75), which is right in line with our points projection this week (17.20).
