NFL Week 13: Houston Texans (5-6) At Philadelphia Eagles (7-4)

The Houston Texans are alive and kicking after defeating the Tennessee Titans, 20-0, last Sunday. With the Indianapolis Colts and Jacksonville Jaguars both losing in Week 12, the Texans are just one game out of first place heading into the final five weeks of the 2010 regular season. Gary Kubiak's bunch will have a chance to make things even more interesting in the AFC South race with a road win against one of the NFC's more dangerous teams, the Philadelphia Eagles, who finally were cooled down this past weekend against the Chicago Bears.  Because the Texans and Eagles are playing on Thursday night in Week 13, neither team will have as much time to rest or prepare for each other. Whether or not that's a blessing in disguise for either team remains to be seen.

Here's a few trends, facts and figures about the Texans and Eagles' series history, as well as up-to-date season stats for both squads.
