Texans-Jaguars preview

. Tonight

Texans (2-10) at Jaguars (3-9)

When/where: 8:25; EverBank Field, Jacksonville

TV/radio: NFL Network; 98.7-FM, 1010-AM

Line/OU: Texans by 3; 43

The Battle for Bridgewater. Draft position hangs in the balance — and possibly the chance to get Louisville junior QB Teddy Bridgewater — though the Jaguars have won three of four, including 13-6 over Houston two weeks ago. Houston has won five of six in the series and nearly upset New England on Sunday. Watch for the Texans' Ben Tate, who had three rushing touchdowns Sunday and two last year at Jacksonville in a 27-7 win.

Greg Auman's pick: Texans 27, Jaguars 21
