    On Sunday, October 29th at 3:05pm, the Texans will take on the Seattle Seahawks at Centurylink Field in Seattle, Washington. The game will be aired locally in Houston on CBS 11.
    After the bye so far under Bill O'brien, the Texans have managed to come out and be better in every aspect of the game.
    This year, the defense needs to do as history has suggested and improve. The offense, however, should they improve, that's just scary to think about.
    The adjustments made by the coaching staff seems to work every year.
    Watson has been amazing so far. If he and the offense get even better, what does that mean for any defense the Texans go against. The Texans offense, run by Watson, has already faced some very good defenses and shown incredible explosiveness and unpredictability. Bill has been able to really open up his play book, add some plays to it, and call really good games.
    This will have to be the case against Sherman and the Seahawks defense. Now their defense is susceptible to the run, but their secondary is among the best in the league with Sherman back there. However, should Watson improve even more, that defense could be facing an offense like they haven't seen this year.
    Watson has the weapons. Hopkins, Fuller, Miller, Ellington, Griffin and Foreman.
    I think this is going to be too much for the Seahawks defense to handle.
    Now as far as Wilson and his offense, should the Texans show the improvement they have in previous years, the Seahawks offense might have problems moving the ball.
    These guys are having problems running and passing consistently. Should Watson and the Texans offense go out there and get ahead early, that will force Wilson to win it with his arm. This year, he just doesn't have the weapons to get that done.
    Clowney and the boys can just pin their ears back and make life miserable for Wilson.
    This is interesting to call. Wilson is a great quarterback. So is Watson.
    I'm going to call a Houston win in a big fight.
    The Texans could run away with the game, but I think Wilson and the "twelfth man" keeps it close.
    Texans 34
    Seahawks 27

    I look for Lamarr Houston to have big impact on the pass rush this game. I'll take Texans 31-24 over the seachickens.

    Houston can't beat the Seahawks with a stick. I hope I'm wrong, but this may be the game an opposing defense solves the Texan onslaught.

    I'm interested to see how Watson handles the 12th man.

    Think the Seahawks might expose Watson this game. Also don't think our defense will hold up well against the Seahawks. Wilson will extend plays and our secondary will not be able to hold up; much like what Alex smith was able to do against us. Hope I'm wrong but seahawks 31-17.

    This is a hard game to call because I really don't know what kind of team the Seahawks are? All of their games have been close, except for their games against bad teams like the Colts & Giants. But even in that Colts game, they struggled early. The game was tied at around 5 mins to go in the 3rd. But then the Seahawks started to make some big plays and ran away with this game. The same can even be said for this weeks game against the Giants. Giants were only down 3 points in the 4th quarter, until Eli fumbled the ball away. Then the Seahawks scored two TDs to make the game seem not as close as it actually was.

    Offensively, they are rather mediocre. They can't run the ball and have a bad OL. Wilson basically has to make plays on his own.
    Defensively, they struggle against the run, but I would not test their secondary.

    It may not be pleasing to the eyes, but a recipe for victory may involve a conservative game plan of trying to run the ball and not cause any turnovers.

    I predict a close game and will probably come down to who has the ball last. A 20-17 type of game.

    Winnable game .... wouldn't have said that at the beginning of the season but the Texans are better with Watson and the SeaDucks aren't as good as they have been the past few years.

    This game will be a good test for Watson. Seattle still fields a very good defense. The front 7 isn't as stout without Avril but they are still very good.

    Deshaun Watson out-shines Russell Wilson.
    Texans beat the Seahawks on the road, 31-20.

    I doubt that will bother Watson at all. If he can't hear, they'll just go old school.

    Seattles O line is quite possibly the worst in the league. If anything time for the Texans youngsters up front on the d line to shine

    I'm not afraid of Seahawks at home like previous years. They're a good team with lots of holes. Our defenses match up well against each others offense. I like our run game much more than I like theirs but their ST is much better than our **** bag ST. We can win this game for sure. Don't let Doug Baldwin beat us with big plays.

    I’ll be there, along with my wife and cousins, cheering our Toros on! I’m hoping we can get a W, but won’t hold my breath. I’ll be happy if we at least make it a shootout like we did at Gillette as it would make the trip worthwhile.

    I am excited to see the upgraded offense with Duane Brown and a bye week O'Brien offense.

    Don't expect Watson to do much here, but Russel Wilson has been very bad in the first half of games so there is opportunity to jump out to a lead.

    I don't think you will see Duane Brown play in this game. I doubt he is in game shape.
