After a scorching win over the Jacksonville Jaguars and an impressive first half against the Cleveland Browns, the Houston Texans have found themselves back under the table again with Davis Mills at the helm. Houston has been outscored by 32 points since Tyrod Taylor’s hamstring forced a quarterback change. The offense is bad, and the defense is bad when they aren’t forcing turnovers.

This week, Houston gets the Buffalo Bills. After losing to Pittsburgh because of a punt block and T.J. Watt domination, the Bills shut out Miami 35-0 and knocked out Washington by 22 points. They’re finally a complete team. Two years ago, Buffalo was led by their defense and rushing attack. Last year, they were lead entirely by Josh Allen, who was their entire run game as well. This season, their defense has been resurrected, and Allen is looks like the Allen of last year. The Bills have it all and are all set for a Super Bowl run.

The oddsmakers don’t give the Texans a chance in Buffalo on Sunday afternoon. Davis Millsis about to be pushed into the buzzsaw, Lovie Smith’s defense will be picked apart by a dynamic quarterback who plays in a well designed offense. Get ready for it. The Bills are 17 point favorites with the over/under at 47.5 points this weekend, according to BetOnline.

Houston plays Buffalo on Sunday, October 3rd at 12 p.m. CDT.
