Week 9 Buffalo Bills @ Houston Texans Diacussion
So, the Texans have opened up as 10.5 - 11 point favorites for this Sunday's tilt, not totally sure how much the line will move barring any unforeseen events leading up to the game. They are coached by noted comedian Chan Gailey and his pistol formations. Dave Wannestadt is their defensive coordinator and both men have been blasted for having uncreative schemes of the vanilla kind. I don't know much about the Bills as it seems that we don't play them very often. On offense they have some decent pieces that can score but they have been inconsistent at best. I know that Levitre and Wood make a good G/C combination, and that Spiller and Jackson are very good backs. However it seems as though the passing game has not been everything they had hoped after signing Ryan Fitzpatrick to a long extension. Not sure how Phillips attacks this offense, I'm guessing that blitzing over and over will be part of the gameplan.
The Bills defense has been the unit most talked about unit, especially the defensive line. We know all about Mario Williams, but they also have an underperforming 3rd overall pick in Marcel Dareus, and Kyle Williams who has been pretty good this year. Nick Barnett is their only LB with a name I recognize, looks like an uninteresting group. Their secondary features Jairus Byrd and Stephen Gilmore, with noted first round bust Leodis McKelvin. Nobody blitzes, nobody makes plays , and everybody puts up 40 burgers on them.
Share your knowledge of the Bills here, I'll update the thread with some news articles when I get around a PC.
