    On Sunday, October 13th at 12:00 PM CST, the Texans will be in Kansas City at Arrow Head Stadium to take on the Kansas City Chiefs. The game will be aired locally in Houston on TV on CBS 11 and on radio on Sports Radio 610 AM.

    Against a bad Falcons team, Watson and the offense finally woke up and showed the fireworks that the Texans offense could be all about. The Chiefs defense isn't much better so we could see some serious fireworks in this game.
    2 gun slingers shooting it out in Kansas City. This is the one everyone wants to see. Watson against Mahomes. Fire power against fire power. This is going to be fun.

    Ok. Watson and his crew against Mahomes and his crew. How do the Texans come out of Kansas City with a win?
    The only way is ball control. The Texans have got to expose the weakness that the Chiefs defense has. The run and underneath routes. With the Texans newly found ability to run the ball, it could open up a whole new level of play for the Texans offense. Getting the ball to the backs out of the back field and to the tight ends underneath could help as well. Play action could really develop as a result of running and getting the ball underneath. Duke, Carlos, Fells and Akins pose a threat and that could open up DeAndre, Will, Keke and Kenny and give Watson the power of play action to get the ball out deep.
    Just use the clock with long methodical drives that end in scores.
    JJ and Whitney have got to get to Mahomes. That's easier said then done. Just throw him off his game, especially since he might be without Tyreek and Sammy. The Colts were able to do it last week and the Texans have got to follow suit in order to have a chance to win. The question is, will the Texans defense be able to keep Mahomes and the rest of his weapons bottled up enough for the Texans to come home from Kansas City with a victory?
    Is it possible for the Texans to win this? I really do think so. After a shocking loss to the Colts, The Texans defense will have a blueprint on how to slow down a hobbled Mahomes and he and his Chiefs will once again be defeated at home.
    I fully expect this to be a high scoring shoot out between Watson and Mahomes that will be exciting and allot of fun to watch. Watson will come out on top.

    Rock & Roll Texans!

    I'm thinking this one might even come down to who has the last chance to score. Timeouts and clock management will be vital...……..yeah we're screwed.

    Texans can win this. KC's defense really sucks. Texans defense is really bad as well though, and Mahomes likely has a field day in the air.

    This game is likely a high scoring offensive battle that goes down to the wire where one team gets that key stop.

    But we are facing Andy Reid! If there is one person on the planet capable of out-BOBing BOB in clock management, its Andy Reid.

    Despite having a week to recover, Mahomes may be limited mobility-wise due to his ankle issues this past week. We need to get pressure on defense and establish the run on offense. They saw what Fuller can do. They have to really decide who to cover between him and Hopkins. I am hoping for two weeks in a row of a strong outing for our team. We shall see...

    Line has gone from -7.5 to only -5.

    Houston Texans @ Kansas City Chiefs

    Players to Watch

    Among the 105 NFL defensive linemen with 100 or more pass-rushing snaps this season, the Texans’ JJ Watt ranks second in PFF pass-rushing grade at 88.6. Totaling 21 hurries, nine hits and five sacks, Watt also ranks first in pass-rush win rate (25.9%) and eighth in pressure percentage (16.5%) among the same group of qualifiers.

    Chiefs right tackle Mitchell Schwartz will see the lion’s share of Watt’s pass-rushing snaps on Sunday. Among the 62 offensive tackles with 120 or more pass-blocking snaps this season, he ranks eighth in pass-blocking grade (80.0) and tied for fourth in pass-blocking efficiency (98.1).

    Fantasy Football Preview

    Since the start of the 2017 season, Patrick Mahomes leads the league in games with at least four passing touchdowns with eight. Deshaun Watson leads in games with at least five, with three. We’ll see how healthy Mahomes is after getting banged up Sunday night, but this is a matchup of maybe the league’s two best fantasy quarterbacks and could provide massive fantasy numbers.

    Greenline Preview

    By far the highest total on the weekend, this number has dropped slightly off the open but is still almost a touchdown more than any other game on this slate. The Chiefs have the first-ranked offense but are coming off by far their worst performance of the season. The Texans have the 10th-ranked offense and are coming off by far their best performance of the season. Some recency bias is again in effect with the Chiefs opening as -7.5 point favorites but now dropping to -5 in most spots. Greenline can point you in the right direction for plays on both the spread and total in this exciting AFC matchup.

    They don't have a LT.............Fisher's out, and Cam Erving who was a 1st round LT bust even by Browns standards came to the Chiefs to man the LG position..........he barely held down that position ..............out of desperation, now injured Erving has been moved to his new position..............they don't have a LG as after last week's injury, I don't see any way Wylie plays.............so I see they've just signed 11 year vet Wisniewski as a desperation move to try to plug the LG hole................JJ and Whitney better be able to test Mahomes' ankle...........and often.............

    I think the players can win. I don't trust the BOB vs. Reid match-up. BOB consistently blows challenges, TO's, time management in general, and gives us plays like the Stagger Lee II.

    In short, if you think (as I do) that the HC match-up is the most important of all - we're doomed.

    If BOB actually can manage to be AR's equal - we win.

    We are catching the Chiefs at a time when they are extremely vulnerable because of injuries and we on the other hand are relatively healthy.
    Top WRs Hill & Watkins are both expected to be out Sunday as is Eric Fischer, their LT, and their backup LT Cam Fleming expected to play is also banged up but he's not very good when healthy.
    To top it off QB MaHomes is nursing a bad ankle those he's expected to play, atleast start.

    Hopefully BoB is aggressive offensively as I think that's the only chance the Texans have in this one. They play conservative, they get blown out.

    I swear if OB tries to slow it down and run on KC I'll drink all the alcohol in house. That's not our game.

    We score a lot and keep it closer than most people think. But the opponents are mad after last week and have us out-manned.

    Actually, with Tyreek and Sammy out, their left tackle out with a far inferior backup playing and Mahomes dealing with a sprained ankle, it might just be the Chiefs that are "out-manned".

    IMO, more impact players for the Chiefs are injured than for the Texans. The Texans can win this game if OB can get out of his own way. They need to either game plan similar to last week or just let DW4 wing it and make a playground game out of it.
    Mahomes is missing much more talent than DW4 (hopefully the same can be said after the game), so I have hope for my Texans.

    Here is a quote from the Chiefs Planet that had me laughing and cringing at the same time.

    "Bill O'Brien is the wildcard in this one. His willingness to be outcoached cannot be underestimated."
