The Houston Texans and Philadelphia Eagles square off in Thursday Night Football in week 9 NFL action at NRG Stadium. The Philadelphia Eagles look for their first 8-0 start in franchise history. The Houston Texans look to rebound from a 1-5-1 start.

The Philadelphia Eagles have won 5 straight road games. Jalen Hurts is completing 67 percent of his passes for 1,799 yards, 10 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. A.J. Brown and Dallas Goedert have combined for 1,080 receiving yards and 6 touchdowns, while DeVonta Smith has 38 receptions. The Philadelphia Eagles ground game is averaging 149.6 yards per contest, and Miles Sanders leads the way with 563 yards and 5 touchdowns. Defensively, Philadelphia is allowing 16.9 points and 298.1 yards per game. T.J. Edwards leads the Philadelphia Eagles with 68 tackles, Haason Reddick has 5.5 sacks and C.J. Gardner-Johnson has 4 interceptions.

The Houston Texans are 1-9-1 SU in their last 11 home games. Davis Mills is completing 63.1 percent of his passes for 1,502 yards, 8 touchdowns and 6 interceptions. Brandin Cooks and Nico Collins have combined for 659 receiving yards and 1 touchdown, while Jordan Akins has 11 receptions. The Houston Texans ground game is averaging 92.4 yards per contest, and Dameon Pierce leads the way with 539 yards and 3 touchdowns. Defensively, Houston is allowing 22 points and 403.6 yards per game. Jonathan Owens leads the Houston Texans with 58 tackles, Jerry Hughes has 5 sacks and Jalen Pitre has 2 interceptions.

The Eagles are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Texans are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 Thursday games and 1-3-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 4-1 in Eagles last 5 road games. The under is 5-1 in Texans last 6 games in November. The Eagles are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings. The favorite is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings.

There’s no reason to really consider the Houston Texans here other than it being a short week and sluggish low scoring games tend to take place. The Philadelphia Eagles are the clear better team across the board, with an offense that’s third in scoring and a defense that’s fourth in scoring. This has the potential to get ugly. However, the Texans have been more competitive than their record suggests, and 4 of their 5 losses have been decided by 10 or fewer points. In fact, the Texans 5 losses have come by an average of 9 points. Complete mismatch, but I’ll grab the free touchdowns anyway.
