Thursday Night Football: Another Low-Scoring Contest?

Will Maurice Jones-Drew have a successful night against Houston?

I don’t know about you guys, but I can’t wait to watch numberFire’s power-ranked worst team face off against the third-worst one tonight in what’s always the sloppiest game of the week.

Can’t. Wait.

Offensively, we’ve got two quarterbacks who, you could argue, have no reason being on a professional football field. We’re going to see Chad Henne – a six-year veteran who’s only starting in the NFL because his team drafted a quarterback who’s been as useful as a book on how to read. And we’ll also watch Case Keenum, a second-year undrafted passer who’s playing because his team’s original starter decided to throw more touchdowns to his opponents than his own wide receivers.

Oh, and don’t forget – we’ll also get to watch a Houston Texans defense that went from being the fourth-best in the NFL a year ago to the 28th-best one so far in 2013.

Can’t. Wait.

Other than the outcome being completely irrelevant to the NFL’s playoff picture, is there anything that we’ll be able to take away from the game tonight? Let’s take a look.
