Week 15: vs Houston Texans

All TE vs HOU

FBG says: Good matchup. Blake Bortles is starting to play like a quarterback who could do some damage in the playoffs as while many people wrote off his game two weeks ago where he dominated the Colts, he followed that up with a very impressive performance last week against Seattle. A big reason for the improved play from Bortles is the improved play of his wide receivers which have increased his completion percentage thus increasing his production, giving the team more first downs, and allowing for longer drives and more plays to be run. Dede Westbrook is really emerging as a player who has a tremendous skillset to complement Marqise Lee and then Keelan Cole as a deep threat down the field. The Texans secondary is one that has been up and down this season. In these two team's first meeting the Texans absolutely shut-down the Jaguars holding Blake Bortles to just 125 yards passing. Interestingly enough, the Texans have only allowed one quarterback to throw between 200-300 yards over their last 11 games. They have allowed six quarterbacks to throw over 300 yards including Jimmy Garoppolo last week and four quarterbacks to throw for less than 200 yards. Johnathan Joseph continues to be solid, but the inconsistent play of Kevin Johnson is really hurting this team, Johnson who was one of the major reasons that the Texans let A.J. Bouye leave in the off-season has really struggled for most of this season while Kareem Jackson has also struggled out of the slot. Joseph will stick to the left-side of the field for most of the game so the Jaguars will be able to design plays around who they want Joseph to be matched up with and to be able to exploit Jackson and Johnson.
