Default who do you think will win Detroit vs. Texans

I really think these teams have built up the same, Quarterback 2 years ago, wide receiver last year, looks like a great game this year!!

Your thoughts...

I believe that the Texans are going to win that one but it's a long way off so let's wait for a definitive call.

Detroit only won 5 games last year, but they were all at home including late season victories over the Rams and Packers. This is their home opener and they are tough at home. It will be a hostile environment - on the road, on turf, in a dome (loud).

The Lions had a great draft. It's going to be difficult to defend Rogers and Roy, then throw in Az-Hakim and Streets for good measure and that's a damm good receiving corps.

Then they got Brock Marion and Fernando Bryant to help bolster the secondary.

Then there's Teddy Lehmann to help out Boss Bailey and Earl Holmes.

Then there's Kevin Jones...talk about some offensive weapons...

Plus, a very good coach.

There's probably a lot of people looking at the Lions record from last year and thinking this will be an easy victory for the Texans (not sure why they would think that anyway since the Texans had the same record).

I think the Lions have turned the corner and will be in the wild card hunt this year. This will be a very difficult game for the Texans. I expect the Lions to be around a 3 point favorite in this one...

I give the Lions the edge. The Lions played well at home last year and the Texans don't seem like the same team on the road.

Texans. We are 2-0 in season openers. Time to make it 3-0.

That may be true DC but we don't play the Lions week 1. We play the Chargers first.
