That's an absolutely fair point and worth noting.

The Bengals that year where easily the worst team in the NFL and deep down they knew it. A loss to the Texans would have been a terrible thing to them at the time because it's one thing to be the worst team in the NFL and it's even worse than that to lose to an expansion team playing it's first season while you're the worst team in the NFL. The Bengals reached down deep inside themselves and pulled out a butt-kicking. The same butt-kicking that every team in the league is capable of delivering if the circumstances are right. Nobody is a sure thing in this league.

Two years later I don't think that San Diego is going to be in that kind of situation. They're not going to be favored to win but they aren't going to be facing an "ultimate insult" kind of situation either. Can they beat us in the opener. Oh yeah. No doubt about it. Will they beat us in the opener. I personally don't believe so.

The Texans come into openers well prepared with a solid game plan. They have had success on opening day against tougher opponents than this. They have some favorable matchups that can be exploited in this game. They're no longer an expansion team and can't fall back on that label/excuse (as if they ever did). They'll show up with 70,000 screaming fans behind them and take care of business.

I stand my ground on this. The Texans will win this game and the one after it. They will enter Arrowhead Stadium 2-0 and from that point forward we'll just have to see what happens.
