Your 2-2 Houston Texans look to return to their winning ways on Sunday afternoon when the 1-3 Atlanta Falcons come to town. Four games into the 2019 season, I’d say we still have no idea how things will turn out for either of these squads come December. It’s safe to say both the Texans and Falcons have disappointed, but October has just begun; there’s still plenty of time, at least in theory, for each to right their respective ship.
I reckon it’s also fair to say that whichever team loses this game is only going to hear the shrieks of fan unrest get louder. Ample turnaround time aside, there’s a lot on the line in Week Five, and this is what you need to know to catch the contest at NRG Stadium this weekend.
