    On Sunday, November 18th at 12:00 noon CST our Houston Texans will travel to our nations capital to take on the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field. The game will be aired on TV on CBS 11 and on radio on AM SportsTalk 610.

    Here are some stats for you as of before the Redskins/Buccaneers game.

    Texans / Redskins
    Offense:
    Points per game/League Ranking
    24.0 (15th) / 20.0 (25th)
    Yards per game
    369.1 (14th) / 343.9 (25th)
    Passing yards per game
    248.9 (19th) / 222.0 (24th)
    Rushing yards per game
    120.0 (11th) / 121.9 (10th)

    Defense:
    Points per game allowed
    20.4 (7th) / 21.5 (9th)
    Yards per game allowed
    336.3 (9th) / 343.5 (10th)
    Passing yards per game allowed
    243.4 (15th) / 254.1 (20th)
    Rushing yards per game allowed
    92.7 (7th) / 89.4 (5th)

    Theses 2 teams are fairly equal with the Texans having the bigger edge on offense and a slight edge on defense. The only 2 categories the Redskins have a slight advantage is in both the run offense and run defense. All in all, the clear advantage does go to our Houston Texans in all other categories.

    Here are the 2 teams.

    The Redskins have a great weapon on offense in Adrian Peterson but if he's stopped, so is the Redskins offense. Easier said then done. He's been in beast mode this year with 136 carries for 604 yards and 4 touchdowns so far. And, he can catch out of the backfield with 12 catches for 162 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Texans defense will have to contain him and open field tackling will be extremely important to get him down before he can do his damage. That will be the biggest key to the game. If the Texans defense can keep Peterson contained and limit his big plays, the Texans will have a much better chance of winning this game. Other then that, the Redskins offense has nothing much else to fall back on.
    The Redskins defense is just behind the Texans defense in ranking and with the addition of Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, their secondary just got a shot in the arm. Him and the all to familiar DJ Swearinger will be a formidable duo in the backfield. Defending the passing game was Washington's biggest weakness on defense and they improved that with the addition of Clinton-Dix.
    The Texans have a formidable offense of their own. With the addition of Damaryius Thomas to go along with Hopkins, that gives Watson a couple of solid receivers to get the ball to. Lamar Miller will have to get things going on the ground, and this is a tall order considering how well the Redskins have been able to defend the run. With that said, Hopefully, the 2 Jordans can step up in the passing game and become better, more dependable threats and improve their run blocking and hopefully Miller can make himself more available out of the backfield as a receiver. There are a couple of hopeful returns that we could see as well in Keke Coutee and D'Onte Foreman. They may not, and likely won't be back, but they would be a huge boost if they could. They'll both be back soon enough though.
    On defense, the Redskins have allot more to worry about in trying to control Watt, Clowney and Mercilus at the line and we've got a couple of beasts of our own in the secondary with Mathieu and Jackson roaming around back their just looking to destroy any ball carrier. Some key returns that are somewhat likely to be back are Joseph, Cunningham, Colvin and Hal. Let's hope they can return and be healthy. These guys will just add to an already formidable defense.
    I see this game as a hard fought battle between 2 teams that want to win to stay on top of their respective divisions. It's going to be a good one.
    Just because of the slight edge in so many areas over the Redskins, the Texans will pull this one out and be 7-3 after the Bye.

    Texans 24
    Redskins 21

    Man, the Redskins have been decimated at OL. Should help us contain AP I'm hoping

    I agree, their rushing game will take a hit with the losses on the line. Even AP needs some gaps. I expect we can shut down their rushing game and make them one dimensional. Again, non elite offensive teams I feel comfortable against as our defense will control them, then special teams and offense just have to do average to win

    Good guys win 27-17

    We handled Denver's offense with several guys out who could be back. Imo this could be a blow out. No sucking for oxygen as at Mile High. Texans come out much more rested.

    Just depends on what Washington defense we get. They are incredibly talented on that side of the ball, but they have been exposed a few times this season

    I think we're a bad matchup for Washington. I think O'Brien/Romeo can outcoach Jay Gruden and his staff, only thing I worry about is this just being another tough place to play on the road. Washington was the NFC team I always liked back in the day, when there was no more Oilers the Skins were my favorite team. I still had a bit of a thing for them the first few years of the Texans existence, Washington was my 1b to my Texans 1a, gradually over the years I just went numb towards them though and I feel nothing for them. Still consider them my favorite NFC team and awesome to see them play the Texans, I believe this will be the first truly meaningful meeting between the two with both teams playing with winning records in 1st place. Going to be cool.

    Will always say the playoff loss at Baltimore my favorite game. That game at Washington a close second

    I can't really remember Andre ever showing that much emotion after a catch. That's why I like that shot of him so much.

    I think we stomp Washington as banged up as they are and us being rested off the bye.

    Mine was the win in Cincy with TJ Yates at QB that got the Texans their 1st playoff appearance.

    Watched it at Bubba's with some of you guys.

    I'd still have to say my favorite Texans game is still the very first game the win over the Cowboys. I was still living in Houston at the time and it was a special time for me, being there for the relaunch of my hometown NFL team was a big part of that time, I've rewatched the game on Youtube recently and everything about it just gives me goosebumps and takes me back in time to that era. The game against Cincy where Yates clinched the division and sealed our first playoff spot and then that first playoff game is right up there with it but I would have to say the best actual football game as far as the game itself, in a game that we won, I would have to say the Redskins game in 2010 was the best Texans game ever played and one of the more underrated gems in all NFL history.

    An 'easy' game allows more rest and more experience for backups. I don't want Watt and Clowney padding stats if can get some snaps off. Same with Watson. Rotate some of those D guys like Heath, Dunn and Watkins in. Maybe that 3rd RB can show his stuff second half.

    Hey that was also my fav - saw that in Vegas but can't remember which Club&Caino we were at but that was a great game and of course we should have won and that would have put us in the AFC championship with the Pats as I recall ?

    We may not be facing Smith. Expect to see Manning back in the QB saddle this week............depending how he does Monday night will determine who our D will see.
