We take a look at Texans vs. Jets and provide an open thread for discussion of Monday Night Football.

The Houston Texans and New York Jets wrap up Week 5 on Monday Night Football in a matchup that has a whole host of questions. The Texans should win big, but who knows what a road game could bring from the Jets. Of course, the 49ers said the Jets quit last week, so we'll see how that carries over.

The Texans join the Falcons as the only remaining undefeated teams in the league. If Houston can get through the Jets tonight, they face a pair of big home games heading into their bye. They will host the Green Bay Packers and then the Baltimore Ravens. The Packers are struggling at this point so that might be a much more winnable game than it seemed at the start of the season.

It will be interesting to see how the Texans move forward. Last year they seemed ready to really break through, but Matt Schaub's injury put them in a tough position. T.J. Yates did some good things, but they ran out of steam in the playoffs. If they can stay healthy, these Texans are a strong team.
