This Houston team is probably not the team you want to play, when you’re already 0-2.
The Texans are favored by 3, which is the first time ALL season the Cowboys haven’t been favored! I’ve already said this season to NOT count out Houston, as they’re my dark horse pick this year.
They DID just come off of a 30-27 OT win by the skin of their teeth over Washington last week, coming back from being 17 down in the 2nd half to tie the Skins in regulation. Their offense is one of the top in the league right now, with Matt Schaub as the league leader in passing last year and nearly throwing for 500 just last week ALONE! This Offense is stacked with Andre Johnson, Kevin Walter, Jacoby Jones and Arian Foster and the Houston D has a monster in Mario Williams!
Our offense DOES post slightly more passing yards than Houston (325 vs. 283), but injuries in Mike Jenkins, Jason Witten and Dez Bryant worry me going into this game, as they’ll be playing with a slight disadvantage.
Our D NEEDS to come through for us! Look out for the killer matchup between Marc Colombo and Mario Williams!
Vegas is giving the advantage to Houston and most of the general consensus is giving Houston the edge in this game. BUT, with SO much on the line, it’s do or die for the Boys and I really think they’ll just squeak by with this one, 17-14
