Without either their first- or second-string quarterback, the Texans are underdogs at home against the Falcons in Week 13.

The Houston Texans will be starting their third quarterback in as many games when T.J. Yates steps under center on Sunday in Week 13, and because of that, the Atlanta Falcons are 2.5-point favorites over the Texans, according to our odds partners Odds Shark, despite having to hit the road to come to Reliant Stadium.

The Texans are riding a five-game winning streak that has featured a number of good days on the ground from Arian Foster, who has topped 100 yards three times in that span. But Yates threw for just 70 yards to lead the Texans last week, and that production will likely not be enough to prevent the Falcons from packing the box against Foster and looking to make Yates beat them.
