THE TEAM NEWS

HOUSTON TEXANS

  • Houston pulled off a come-from-behind victory to return to winning ways thanks to some superb play from QB Deshaun Watson against Oakland as he managed to throw at TD pass despite getting kicked in the eye as the play was developing.
  • The Texans suffered a huge blow last week with star DE J.J. Watt ruled out for the season after tearing a pectoral muscle but his loss could be tempered somewhat by the return of CB Johnathan Joseph after he returned to practice on Wednesday.
  • WR DeAndre Hopkins was only limited at the first session of the week with a thumb injury and the Texans also had five others who could not log a full practice although most are expected to suit up.

JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS

  • Jacksonville made it back-to-back victories as they proved too good for the New York Jets to improve to 4-4 for the season and will hope to carry their efforts on from the last two games as they head to London.
  • Jaguars WRs Marqise Lee has been placed on IR after the shoulder injury he suffered in last week’s win whilst fellow WR Dede Westbrook is in doubt for after he was forced off with neck and shoulder issues and he could only log a limited practice on Wednesday.
  • QB Gardner Minshew was added to the injury report at the start of the week because of shoulder soreness but he managed to come through practice unscathed and should have no problem lining up under center on Sunday.

THE PREDICTION

Jacksonville were led to another win thanks to a brilliant display by QB Gardner Minshew but he will face a tough test against Houston this week. Deshaun Watson produced some magic of his own in his team's win over Oakland and will be key again with the Texans able to make it back-to-back victories in what should be an entertaining contest at Wembley Stadium between two teams with play-off aspirations.
