leave a comment »

Tom Brady

After last night’s action, Week 14 comes to a close tonight with an exciting clash between two of the top teams in the AFC as the Houston Texans travel to New England to take on the Patriots.

The game will be live on ESPN in America and on the BBC Red Button in Ireland.

Now without further ado, here is my preview of Monday Night Football Week 14.

Houston Texans at New England Patriots

Matt Schaub

Stadium- Gillette Stadium

Kickoff- 8:30 p.m. in New England/1:30 p.m. Irish Time


Tom Brady

Both these teams have got Playoff spots already locked up and are now in a battle to get the number 1 seed in the AFC.

There is no doubting that the Texans have had a fantastic season thus far but I think they face their toughest test yet tonight in New England and I see Tom Brady and the Patriots getting the win.

Texans 17 Patriots 29

So that’s your preview and prediction, hope everyone enjoys the game.

Looking ahead to the rest of the action this week and there are some great games to watch on Sunday.

The Norv Turner era in San Diego is coming to a close and the Chargers face another tough test this week on the road at Heinz Field against the Pittsburgh Steelers. There is another exciting matchup in the NFC with the New Orleans Saints travelling on the road to take on the New York Giants.

Monday Night Football- Texans vs Jets Preview

Mark Sanchez

After some fantastic games yesterday, Week 5 comes to a close tonight with an exciting AFC clash between the Houston Texans and the New York Jets.

The game will be live on ESPN in America and on the BBC Red Button in Ireland.

So without further ado, here is a full preview of Week 5 Monday Night Football.

Kickoff- 8:30 p.m. in New Jersey/ 1:30 a.m. Irish Time

What to Watch

Tim Tebow

Jets Passing Game vs Texans Defense

  • The Jets passing game is yet to show any promise on offense so far this season with Santonio Holmes being the only wideout with over 200 receiving yards through four games. Some have blamed the infamous Tim Tebow but whatever the reason is, the Jets passing game must turn things around and fast.
  • As for the improving Texans defense, they are currently the second best in the NFL in passing yards allowed. J.J. Watt will definitely be a key factor for the Texans tonight.

Texans Running Game vs Jets Front Seven

  • The Texans running game boasts arguably the best tandem in football with Arian Foster and Ben Tate. Both have made fast starts to the new season and will look to continue that against the Jets defense.
  • If the Jets are going to stand any chance of pulling off the upset, their front seven must step up. They are giving up over 170 yards per game on the ground this year and that simply cannot happen if they are to win tonight.

Texans Wide Receivers vs Jets Cornerbacks

  • Now in his eleventh season, Andre Johnson is still putting up All-Pro numbers and will cause matchup problems for the Jets secondary. With Darrelle Revis on injuried reserve, Antonio Cromartie will likely be given the task of stopping the former Miami Hurricane.
  • Away from Johnson, the Texans will count on veteran Kevin Walter to support Matt Schaub. Also keep an eye on tight end Owen Daniels and running back Arian Foster in the Texans passing game.

Who to Watch

Andre Johnson (#80) and Arian Foster (#23)

Arian Foster- Running Back- Texans

  • Arian Foster has 39 total touchdowns in his last 33 regular season games and is every fantasy football owners favorite player. A dangerous weapon on the ground and through the air, look for Foster to be a threat carrying the load and making plays in the passing game tonight.
  • So who do the Jets have on defense that can stop Foster? Well the player given this task will likely be middle linebacker David Harris whose production could prove vital tonight.

Andre Johnson- Wide Receiver- Texans

  • As I mentioned earlier, Andre Johnson is still one of the best in the business when it comes to elite wide receivers. On pace for another 1,000 yard season, Johnson will be a key contributor for the Texans offense tonight.
  • Antonio Cromartie should see plenty of snaps lined up opposite Johnson tonight. It’s time for Cromartie to stop talking about replacing Darrelle Revis and prove himself again as a number 1 cornerback.

Tim Tebow- Quarterback- Jets

  • How can a backup quarterback be a key player to watch? When your name is Tim Tebow and you can play quarterback/h-back/receiver and punt protector then your always going to be a potential key factor to watch.
  • After completing his first pass in a Jets uniform last week, look for Tebow’s role to be increased again. Whether passing or running, I expect Tebow to be a key player tonight.


Mark Sanchez (#6) and Tim Tebow (#15)

This game should be a high scoring battle as both defenses are prone to the occasional large margin of points allowed.

Although some my recent picks haven’t gone according to plan, I’m still going to go out on a limb and pick a Jets upset win.

Texans 28 Jets 31

So that’s your preview and prediction, hope everyone enjoys tonight’s game.
