The storyline
If this was the Texans' year to finally break through, they sure have a funny way of showing it. The Jets, meantime, excel in close games and finish games in ways Houston can only dream of.

Why you should watch
Mark Sanchez is coming off his most complete game as a pro. Santonio Holmes should find plenty of yards after the catch against this outfit. Could a return to his home state cull something from a fading Brian Cushing?
