By all indications, this will be a massacre. The Texans are undefeated (4-0) and are considered one of the best teams in football while the Jets are reeling and are considered one of the worst. Making matters worse for the Jets is the loss of their All Pro corner Darrelle Revis for the season.

Matt Schaub and Arian Foster should have no difficulty carving up the Jets defense. They top rated defense should also have no trouble with the worst starting quarterback in the NFL, Mark Sanchez and the Jets anemic offense.

As far as former Raiders to watch, the Jets have a few. The Jets lost their top receiver, Santonio Holmes for the season which means more playing time for former Raider Chaz Schilens. He was brought to New York by Raiders' former wide receivers coach Sanjay Lal.

The Texans have no former Raiders on their team. The Raiders have a few former Texans though. Their offensive coordinator, Greg Knapp was the QB coach in Houston last season. He brought over right guard Mike Brisiel and backup quarterback Matt Leinart. I think it's safe to say the Texans aren't missing any of them.
