    Just something I found just now...

    "Kansas City at Houston: Through five weeks, no division is as wide open as the AFC South. All four teams - Houston, Indy, Jacksonville, and Tennessee - are tied for first (and last) with 3-2 records. Texans beginning to hit the panic button should relax. They’ll win on Sunday, Matt Schaub will light up that young Kansas City secondary and the Chiefs media bandwagon - packed to the brim with hangers-on just a week ago - will be all but empty by Monday. The Pick: Texans 31, Chiefs 13"

    I agree that I think we win, but after last week's crapfest I am not calling this thing a blow out.

    Unless, of course, Rosencopter gets traded to the Chefs.

    This defense holding a team to 13 points...? No freakin way. We may win, I'd give us an 80% chance, but it will be high scoring.

    Texans hold Cheifs to 13 points for 45 minutes. Play prevent defense and give up another 13 in the 4th qtr. Texans win 31-26.

    Chiefs will score on our defense. We've got injury bugs on our star players on offense, so expecting the Texans offense to come out full hilt is wrong, because it won't. Both teams will score more than 20 points, but I'm thinking the Texans will win.

    But not before they fall behind and this board implodes before 3PM this Sunday. LOLz

    This place is ripe for an implosion. Civil insurrection. Discord. Ill will. Maliciousness. Brain eating zombies. You name it, it'll be here if we get behind.

    And if we lose? Oh man.....

    The Texans will beat the Chiefs. I feel good about it and I'm not just drinking koolaide. I honestly feel that the team is going to have a chip on it's shoulder after being embarrassed in front of the hometown crowd last weekend.

    I do think the score will be a lot closer than 31-13, though.

    I think the biggest reason we'll beat the Chiefs is that we simply provide a match-up problem for them. Our defensive weakness is their offensive weakness, our defensive strength is their offensive strength, and they have a weak passing defense. Further, they have been playing over their heads, the game is at Reliant (I know, I know, what does that mean these days), and, like you said, we have something to prove.

    All bodes well for us and I imagine this will look a lot like the Raider game of '09.

    Totally agree. Unfortunately that is why the Texans frustrate me so damn much for being so predictable.

    Win big game in DC
    Lose possible momentum building game in crapassed fashion to dAllAs
    Win bounceback game in OAK
    Lose crapfest to NYG

    so.....looks like we are due for a win, then the bye, then, unfortunately if this same pattern holds and based on previous Texans outings when we are all expecting big things...we get annihilated the following week on national TV.

    Obviously I really, really hope that is not the case....but that is the track they are on right now so.........

    I hope if the team wins this week (which I believe they will, but not in a blow out) the media doesn't start to annoint them again. They play better when everyone is crapping on them it seems like...

    I think we're going to see a major change in our defense Sunday. People are going to say it's because we were playing the Cheifs, & a sub-par Matt Cassell.

    I watched the Giants game several times, & while we looked bad, I don't believe we looked as bad as it seemed. I went over the play-by-play and broke down the game, focusing on the second half. This is what I found.

    Ask Peyton Manning how weak it is.

    You only allowed one offensive touchdown AT Indy.
    Pretty weak.
