Houston vs Bills by Lloyds
Houston didn't impress on both ends of the field against the Giants. The Texans played excellent defense in their first two matches, allowing only 6 and 14 points to Washington and Oakland but against the Giants they were unable to stop the run. New York rushed for almost 200 yards which is a big number considering that Houston posses the best defensive player in the league, linebacker JJ Watt, who didn't make any sacks on Sunday. Also Houston didn't play well offensively but that could be because their starting running back, Arian Foster, did not play due to injury. The Texans committed 3 which sparked the Giants, who cruised to an easy victory.
The Bills did not stand a chance against the mighty Chargers who dominated the whole game, especially defensively. However, the main reason why Buffalo couldn't connect on offense lied in too many yards given up on penalties. The penalties cost them 101 yards in total which was enough for San Diego to put the game to sleep. Buffalo could surprise Texans on Sunday if Arian Foster stays injured but even without him beating Houston on its home field is a long-shot.
I expect Houston will get back their stellar defense for this match while offense will manage to find the way to the endzone. Foster is doubtfull but could see some action as he was training yesterday. Buffalo didn't do too well in their last 2 meeting against the Texans as they only scored 19 points combined. In their last match, in 2012, the Bills lost at Houston 21-9 scoring all their nine points from field goals. That scenario is likely to repeat on Sunday.
