Week 11 matchups: Texans at Jets

1. Andre Johnson v. Darrelle Revis: The Texans' wide receiver is on pace to top 1,500 yards receiving for yet another season, but he is facing a cornerback rounding into his Pro Bowl form of last year, following the early season hamstring injury. Factor in Antonio Cromartie, who can play Johnson on short yardage situations with his longer frame and the wideout might be in for a long day. Advantage: Jets

2. Matt Schaub v. Shaun Ellis: It has been a quiet year for Ellis, whose sack and tackle numbers are down, but Sunday could be a big week for the defensive end. With Matt Schaub struggling midweek due to a knee injury, Ellis could have a field day in the backfield with a less than mobile quarterback. Advantage: Jets

3. LT & Greene v. Texans D-Line: The Texans conceded 165 yards on the ground last week to Jacksonville, a number that has Jets O-coordinator Brian Schottenheimer talking balanced attack. Despite a dinged-up offensive line, the Jets should have no problem running or passing -- the Texans are giving up a league worst 301 yards per game. Advantage: Jets
