The Texans travel to New Jersey for a Monday Night showdown against the Jets, a matchup between two teams headed in opposite directions.

The Houston Texans (4-0) travel to New Jersey looking for their first franchise win against the New York Jets (2-2) in a nationally televised game on Monday Night Football on ESPN.

The Texans are widely considered the best team in football after getting off to the first 4-0 start in franchise history, while the Jets appear to be headed in an uncertain direction.

Houston sports the top defense in the NFL, along with the second-highest scoring offense in the league, presenting an incredibly balanced attack both sides of the football. The Texans have won all four games this season by relatively easy standards, coming off a 38-14 win over the Tennessee Titans last Sunday.

The Jets, meanwhile, were shutout at home by the San Francisco 49ers this past week. The 34-0 loss raised more questions as to whether Mark Sanchez should be benched in favor of Tim Tebow, after the starting quarterback passed for just 103 yards and one interception on 29 attempts.

The Jets, already missing Darrelle Revis (likely for the year), placed receiver Santonio Holmes on injured reserve this week.
