The Jaguars season has come full circle heading into their week 15 matchup with the Texans. Jacksonville lost 37-21 to Houston in the season opener in what was Urban Meyer’s NFL head coaching debut, and now they’ll face the Texans in the first game since Meyer was fired on Thursday.
Interestingly enough, the Jaguars went from -3.5 to -5.5 favorites after Meyer’s firing was announced. Both the Jaguars and Texans look pretty horrible right now, but you have to think Jacksonville gets a little more motivated with the cancer Meyer out of the locker room.
It seems like eons ago when the Texans were rolling over Jacksonville 37-21 in week one. QB Tyrod Taylor threw for 291 yards and 2 TD while Mark Ingram II added 84 yards and a score on the ground.
Taylor has since been injured and subsequently benched, Ingram was traded back to the Saints, and the Texans have gone 1-11 since that September 12th victory. Houston has lost their last two games by a combined 64-13.
The good news for Houston – not like there’s much – is that the Jaguars are just as bad and now turn to Darrell Bevell who is just 1-4 in his limited head coaching experience.
Texans QB Davis Mills threw for 331 yards last week against the Seahawks and didn’t have an interception, but the team still scored just 13 points. It’s not going to take a ton of points to beat the Jaguars, but can Houston get there?
The Jacksonville locker room has to be reinvigorated after more and more rumors about how atrocious a coach Meyer was continue to circulate. The change had to be made as the Jaguars have been outscored 57-7 the last two weeks, albeit by good teams the Rams and Titans with both contests being on the road.
Trevor Lawrence was one of the most disgusted with Meyer by all reports, so he’s got a great chance to show what he can do in a more relaxed atmosphere over these last four games of the season. Lawrence threw 3 INTs in the season opener against Houston, but hasn’t evolved much after tossing 4 INTs last week against Tennessee.
The Jaguars haven’t scored more than 17 points in any of the last seven games, so the total of 39.5 for this matchup looks sky high.

- Texans are 2-5 ATS last 7 as an underdog
- Texans are 1-4 ATS last 5 road games

4* Free Week 15 NFL Betting Prediction: Under 39.5
Flip a coin or let your dog pick out of two different bowls because there’s not a lot of stats or trends that can be examined to figure out a winner in this one. There’s so many intangibles with the firing of Meyer, which is probably actually a good thing for the Jaguars.
Bevell wants to win in one of his rare head coaching opportunities, but to be honest both teams could benefit more from a loss. If the Lions could miraculously pull off one more win this season, the loser of this Jaguars / Texans matchup would be in line for the #1 pick next year.
There are definitely better games out there on this week 15 slate.
