Week 9: vs Philadelphia Eagles

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Ryan Fitzpatrick has brought the Texans through the first half of the season at 4-4 and in second place in the AFC South behind the 5-3 Colts. Over the last two games he's thrown 40/67 for 489 yards, three TDs and one interception while going 1-1 (beating divisional foe Tennessee but losing to the Steelers). Three players have seen double digit TDs during that time frame, with 21 targets for 12/132/0 receiving flowing to Andre Johnson; 20 for 11/203/0 going to DeAndre Hopkins; and 12 for 8/35/2 landing in Arian Foster's arms. Alfred Blue caught the other TD over the last two weeks (2/33/1 receiving over the past two contests). It isn't fancy, but Fitzpatrick has mostly kept the Texans' offense rumbling along in orderly fashion. The Eagles' pass D is currently 26th in the NFL allowing 266.9 net passing yards per game, with a whopping 15 pass TDs given up vs. three interceptions (tied-26th in the NFL) and 19 sacks generated (14th). Carson Palmer wasn't sacked or intercepted last week (20/42 for 329 yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions), while Eli Manning and Ryan Nassib were sacked eight times for -43 yards during their nightmare in Lincoln Field two games back (17/28 for 168 net yards, zero TDs or interceptions). Houston is in the middle of the NFL ranks with 16 sacks allowed (14th in the NFL). This looks like a good matchup for the home team.
