On paper, it's not even close, but Rex Ryan is 2-0 against Houston and the Texans -- the new "anointed" team -- are due for a scare.

After being dismissed in the news media as a hopelessly flawed team, and after the season-ending injury to Holmes on top of the season-ending injury to Revis, the Jets are already at Defcon 1. Got a feeling they'll play better this week, but Houston is just too talented to lose this game.
|TEXANS 31, JETS 10
Houston may be the best team in the NFL. The Jets will play hard but just Won't have the weapons to keep up.
|TEXANS 31, JETS 3
Mark Sanchez's days as Gang Green's starting quarterback might be over as soon as Monday.
|TEXANS 24, JETS 17
The Texans won't be denied but the Jets will try to keep their pride in Monday Night Football.
|TEXANS 40, JETS 13
The Jets don't have a chance in you-know-what. There's nothing to talk about here.
|TEXANS 29, JETS 10
Right now Houston has the best defense in the league and the 2nd best offense. They are a buzzsaw the Jets are just not in position to handle.
|TEXANS 24, JETS 6
The Jets' just don't have enough talent to tackle Houston.
|TEXANS 31, JETS 7
I keep asking myself how the Jets could make this competitive. I can't come up with any answers.
|TEXANS 27, JETS 13
It can't get worse. Can it? The Jets can't stop the run and that's trouble against this Texans club.
|TEXANS 27, JETS 20
The Jets will play tough but the Sanchez era is in a precarious state.
|TEXANS 24, JETS 7
No Holmes. No Revis. No chance for the Jets. The chants for Tebow will grow to their loudest point yet, setting him up to start in Week 6 vs. Indy.
|TEXANS 28, JETS 10
Sanchez has never lost to the Texans, but he also had a much better team in their first two meetings. These Jets can't run it, throw it or win it.
|TEXANS 27, JETS 17
The Jets will play hard with Houston pulling away as the game goes along. Sanchez will play just well enough that the debate will continue.
