The Texans got passed the Jags with relative ease in a 26-3 victory. Watson threw for 201 yards with two 2TD’s and Carlos Hyde was a beast in the backfield stomping his way to 160 yards.

In the upset of the year so far Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens took it to New England the whole 60 minutes. Jackson looked fantastic and he kept the Patriots D off balance all game. Lamar completed 17/23 passes for 163 yards with a TD, his legs got him another 61 yards and 2 more TDs. The Ravens won 37-20, did they expose something about New England or did the Pats just have an off week? Only time will tell.
Tonight we close out week 9 with a battle between two NFC East teams looking for bragging rights. The 4-3 Dallas Cowboys take on the 2-6 New York Giants at MetLife Stadium.
