Texans-Jets: Not Even St. Tim Tebow Can Save Jets From Houston Dominance

Cold, Hard Football Facts for Oct 08, 2012

Not even beloved CHFF favorite St. Tim Tebow and 1,000 wildcats can save the Jets this week on Monday Night Football, folks.

Take a look at our Houston Texans-N.Y. Jets breakdown this week at CHFF Insider (table below). These the statistical game tables are the foundation of our real and spectacular picks.

And it couldn't be uglier for the reeling Jets, a team fresh off a 34-0 loss to the 49ers.

We size up each opponent side by side in 20 different Quality Stats, and check off the team that has the advantage in each indicator on the list.

Here's what the Texans-Jets table looks like heading into their Monday night showdown at MetLife Stadium.

That's right: the Houston Texans are better than the New York Jets in ALL 20 indicators.

We're not sure we've ever seen domination like that in any game four weeks into the season. Maybe after Week 1, sure, following a very poor Week 1 for one team and a great Week 1 for another. But definitely not at the quarter pole.

Even terrible teams can find two or three of 20 areas in which they're better than their opponent.

But not the Jets vs. the Texans.

Hell, the Bills were better than the 49ers this week in 6 of 20 Quality Stats. Yet we still picked the 49ers to cover 9.5 points, which they did. The Vikings were better than the Titans in 19 of 20 different Quality Stats this week, so we picked them to win big as well. Minnesota won 30-7.

All statistical signs point to another ugly shellacking Monday night.
