In 6 career starts versus Jacksonville, RB ARIAN FOSTER is averaging 119.2 yards from scrimmage per game (715 total; 613 rushing, 102 receiving) with 6 rushing TDs. Foster needs only one more 100-yard rush game to surpass PRIEST HOLMES (31) for most ever by an undrafted player. He also has 10 TDs in Houston's past 6 games (6 rushing, 4 receiving) and aims for his 7th game in a row with a TD. Since 2010, Foster leads the AFC in rushing yards (5,707) and rushing TDs (49).

WR ANDRE JOHNSON (992 receptions, 13,381 yards) needs 9 catches to surpass HINES WARD (1,000) for No. 9 all-time and only two yards to eclipse TORRY HOLT (13,382) for No. 12 all-time. For his career, 'Dre averages 6 catches per game, which is the best in NFL history (minimum of 100 games).

WR DEANDRE HOPKINS had a career-high 238 receiving yards and 2 TDs last week.

JAGUARS:

They overcame a 21-point deficit to beat the Giants last week.  That was the largest comeback in club history.

Last week, QB BLAKE BORTLES (taken No. 3 overall in the 2014 NFL Draft) became the third starting rookie QB since 1970 to help his team overcome a 21-point deficit to win (MATTHEW STAFFORDVINCE YOUNG).  Bortles has 2,261 passing yards and needs 239 to join BYRON LEFTWICH (2,819) as the only Jags rookies with 2,500.

In his past 6 games, RB DENARD ROBINSON is averaging 90.8 yards from scrimmage per game (545 total; 458 rushing, 87 receiving) and has 4 rush TDs.

WR CECIL SHORTS III has a TD in two of his last three games against the Texans.

Last week, rookie WR MARQISE LEE (taken No. 39 overall in the 2014 NFL Draft) led the team with career-high 75 yards on 6 catches.  He also scored his 1st career TD (30 yards).

Rookie WR ALLEN HURNS (undrafted) is tied for second among AFC rookies in TD receptions (5) and ranks 4th in receiving yards (530).

The Jacksonville defense has 37 sacks, which is good for second in the AFC & third in the NFL.

Last week, the Jags had 2 fumble recoveries for TDs – J.T. THOMAS III (0 yards) & AARON COLVIN (41 yards).

DT SEN’DERRICK MARKS has 5 sacks in his past 5 games, including 2 versus the Giants last week.
