NFL Week 14 Game Capsule: Texans v. Jaguars

Assume the position, Mr. Keenum. - Thomas Campbell-USA TODAY Sports

The 2-10 Houston Texans take on the 3-9 Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday night. It's like the exact opposite of the Super Bowl. Take a look inside the numbers and see what I mean.

Courtesy of NFL Communications, I give you these numbers, notes, and food for thought as your 2-10 Houston Texans look to suck slightly less (or more, if you're looking for the first pick in the 2014 NFL Draft) than the 3-9 Jacksonville Jaguars in front of a national audience on Thursday Night Football this week.
