Texans 24 Lions 16.

David Carr throwing to AJ without Dre Bly in the game.....24 points
No Charles Rogers leaving Roy Williams alone....16 points.
Not having to play 25 men in the box to stop LT.....priceless.

Loss of Bly definitely hurts. But the Detroit Defense played very well, forcing 4 turnovers, holding Thomas Jones to 3 yards/carry, and sacking Grossman 3 times without even blitzing, picking him off twice and stripping the ball out of his hands. Lehman (a hated Sooner, I would imagine) forced a fumble as well, and Shaun Rogers blocked his 5th career FG in his 4th year, which was run back for a TD. It won't be as easy as it looks.

Charles Rogers out hurts but we have tremendous depth there, and we have yet to establish the run. We're deeper at WR and TE than you think, far deeper than you are at CB/SS/LB. So please, double up on Williams. Then Streets, Hakim, Alexander, KJ, and Sledge will be wide open. Considering your pass rush, and the fact that the Lions pass blocking is far superior to that of the Chargers, you're still in trouble there.

You can probably play an 8 man front against our run game, unless I see serious improvement. I'm not sure if it was KJ trying to be Barry Sanders too much (by that I mean too much E-W instead of N-S movement), or bad run blocking. Pinner seemed to do alright, so I'm still not sure. But neither are LT. Man that guy is the next Barry, Emmet, Payton, and Brown all rolled into one.

I think the difference will be you make more mistakes than we do, and Lions win a squeaker.

The Lions will win this one 28-14. Texans will struggle all game and score a late TD to make it respectable. Your young QB will struggle. Your run game will be shut down. KJ has his breakout game Sunday. ROY puts on a show for the local viewers back in Texas.

Our defense totally shuts you guys down! Joey wins the first round of the class of 2002 QB battle.

It going be to a long time before David cuts his hair!

Hervoyel 09-13-2004 09:53 PM

I'm going with my Texans to win and playing hard to wipe out the memory of that poor performance in the opener. No big number predictions here though. I'm going with Texans 24 Lions 17 on this one.

But can you explain why you think this will happen? Or are you just talking out of your blow-hole?

24-20 or 24-17, one way or the other. Could go either way, but I'll say Lions at home

beerlover 09-13-2004 10:19 PM

I'm not going to even try to predict a score for this game, but what I will predict is the Texans DO NOT OVER LOOK THE LIONS. Should be quite a battle in the den. :thumbup

Agreed

We have always been 1-1 after week two and I really dont want to see that change so Texans win 34-28 in OT where AJ catches a TD pass to end the game and then promptly throws the ball into Charles Rogers hands, who is on the sideline watching. AJ then says "Why did the Lions pick you ahead of me???"

Texans 174
Lions 3

keyfro 09-13-2004 10:39 PM

i'm not gonna make a prediction for this game...all i'm gonna say is this...this is the game of the year for us

carr vs harrington
johnson vs williams (be honest williams is the reciever casserly wanted from day one)
davis vs jones
young team vs young team

this is the game where we should put it all on the line and see which is better...hell we should be doing that every game but more this one

We are coming off a huge win for us and will carry the momentum into our seasom opener at home. For all our struggles the last few years we have always been very tough to beat at home. Our team grew up alot in that win at Chicago. You guys are starting some rookies in key positions and they will be experiencing their first taste of the NFL on the road. Our crowd and stadium is ver difficult for the visitors.

We also will have a much better showing on offense and will have a better game plan snce we now know Rogers won't be playing. Much of our passing games was planned around Rogers so when he went down the Team was stunned and it really took us 3 quarters to adjust, but we did and were able to put together a game winning drive for a TD.

Our rookies played pretty good for their first game, but should be much more comfortable now that they have gotten a little taste of live NFL action. Playing in soldier field is no piece of cake. KJ missed some huge holes running the ball and should have a breakout game. You saw ROY's catch and he will see more balls this week. He caught 4 passes for 64 yards by the way and got a pass interference in the endzone to setup a score too.

Our young LBs played very well. Lehman caused a huge fumble and our defense played very well causing 5 turnovers and getting 2 sacks.

Also I think the Bears have a very good defense and really don't think we will play too many teams with a better DL and group of LBs. They were really fast and blitzed almost every play. Our OL did a really good job only giving up 1 sack. We lost our best WR and CB during the first 2 series and still gutted out the win.

That is why I am optimistic!

I am going out on a limb and don't mean to disrespect the lions.
24- 10 Houston.

I personally think our defense was embarrassed by the game last week and we will open it up more. I think we will have Glenn matched up on Williams all game long. IF NOT ... 24-14 houston ;)

RTP2110 09-13-2004 11:14 PM

Texans will keep constant double teams on Roy Williams. The Texans never play 2 good games in a row, they also never play 2 bad ones in a row.

Texans 26
Lions 17

I happen to think just th opposite. I think the Texans are gonna come in and look to avenge their horrible showing opening day and play an inspired game. Dont look past us, minus the turnovers, we proved that we are a force to be reckoned with on Offense. Had to eat alot of crow after last week but Im still confident in this week.
