Nobody—and I mean NOBODY—expects the 1-2 Houston Texans to beat the 2-1 Buffalo Bills in Buffalo today. The Texans are starting a rookie quarterback who was selected in the third round; the Bills are starting a legitimate MVP candidate at QB. In addition to that sizable edge, the Bills are simply more talented at virtually every other position on the roster. Sure, Laremy Tunsil and Brandin Cooks could start for Buffalo, but the list of other Texans who fit that profile is somewhere between exceedingly short and nonexistent.
The Texans are supposed to lose today. Badly. Did David Culley’s charges get the memo? We will find out when the Texans and Bills kick off at noon CDT. The game thread will publish at 11:45 a.m. CDT. Until then, make use of the Comments below to discuss what’s on your mind pre-game.
