Quick Take: Jets get huge challenge in Texans and NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport has his thoughts on the game:

Why this game is intriguing: Because we, as a society, love to rubberneck. That's why we'll be checking this out on Monday Night. The Jets are a train wreck, having lost star cornerback Darrelle Revis, star receiver Santonio Holmes and likely their minds. How will they respond to facing the NFL's best team? It won't be pretty, though this is another chance to learn about Rex Ryan the coach.

What to watch: If you're at the game, watch the Jets' sideline. Emotions will be high. If you like football, however, watch the Texans on the field. No drama, no circus atmosphere, just the NFL's most efficient and well-rounded team. What will the Jets' defense be able to take away? Arian Foster in the run game? Receiver Andre Johnson and quarterback Matt Schaub will capitalize. OK, you want to stop the pass? Good luck tackling Foster with seven men in the box. If you haven't checked out the Texans, you'll see why they are so good.
