Completely different situations.
Houston was coming off high levels of play coming into the Jets game, levels that are not sustainable.
In other words the Jets game was a game where Houston could easily be full of themselves and become complacent.
Atlanta was coming off high levels of play coming into the Carolina game, a game they could become complacent and did.
And by the way, I took both Carolina VS Atlanta and the Jets this past monday night, in the NFL contest on the site because of their high level of play which was not maintanable.
Atlanta comes into the Raider game coming off low levels of play in the past 2 games, because of that they will not be complacent but will be more focused and bring more intesity to get their game back on track.
The right play is on Atlanta in a blow-out........................................
My spread on this game is Atlanta -14.5 using "the key stat battles" which have a high correlation to winning NFL Games.
