Maybe a few fans are thinking that way, but I think there is zero% chance the Texans are thinking that way. Coming off a loss reinforces the idea that the Texans will take this game seriously rather than lightly. If they had beat the Colts I could see them being overconfident and dismissive of the Falcons--that would be a trap game.
Well just pull up the preseaon predictions then and see how many "W's " are marked for the falcons. Someone is over estamating someone. and I believe it is more than just a "few" poor misguided fans. And if the players are thinking that way, and fall into that thinking....I don't see where I'm, wrong here. I'm sure the coaches are preaching to them. But they are a young team. Sometimes you gotta learn the hard way.

What fans predict is 1000% irrelevant to what the team is thinking. We are favored by 3 not 100 and the team is well aware of how injured they are. I see no reason for you to believe the Texans are overlooking the Falcons.

Ah yeah I do. They have two fewer wins than we do. They look like dung on paper, be very easy to over look them. We're coming off an emotional loss, we're favored, they match up very well against us.
