Texans 100: Facts and figures for Week 12 against the Jets




 

The Houston Texans take on the New York Jets Sunday at 12:00 p.m. Central Time at NRG Stadium.

The two sides are 2-8 and are attempting to build culture. Meanwhile the fans for each side wouldn't feel too bad if they took another L. As it stands, the Jets are slated to get the No. 2 overall pick in the 2022 NFL draft while the Texans are projected to get the No. 4 overall pick.

Until the Detroit Lions, who have yet to earn their first win of the season, start firing off victories, it's safe to say the No. 1 overall pick is going to the Motor City.

Here are 100 facts surrounding the encounter between New York and Houston.
