    This well-written piece describes in detail all facets of what the Texans can expect to deal with tomorrow. The Bills are desperate to go at least 1-1 in their next 2 games in order to having any decent chance of making the playoffs. If they are to win, their running game and some luck will probably be their only realistic path. I hope the Texans look better in shutting down the run than they have in some previous performances......so there is less chance for Fitzpatrick to have the opportunity to introduce the luck.

    weve been ahead by around 20 points each game,,the other team was forced to throw, with exception to the packers game but all tds were thru the air.

    IIRC the recent record belongs to last year's niner defense with 3 TDs allowed in the regular season. Btw, we have not allowed a run of 20 yards or more.

    My concern with this Bills team is that they have very good special teams. Special Teams that can keep them in a game when their offense is sputtering. I'm less worried that our defense gets beat, but we can't give up free points to these guys.

    It's somewhat surprising to me that so many are surprised at the stat "no rushing TD allowed." It has been repeatedly reported in various articles. Nevertheless, here are some additional interesting stats that may play into the strategy that makes up this game.

    well on paper everything looked good. There not showing it but CHeifs and Bills have aloooottt of talented players and good depth ...on paper

    THe bills front 4 man they had Anderson and Mario and Darious ..a 1st round pick and williams i think two giant DT COGS with pass rushing ability ..and like 3 good rotation DE players when u look at that u think OMG Scary ..but no

    and the cheifs won the divison 2 years ago and last year at the end of the season there D was stiff and ball hawking finishing 8-8 i think

    or maybe thoes 2 teams esppp the cheifs kinda mimic the texans on the way they have built there team ..thats why
