    If Osweiler beat them last year, what do you think Watson will do to them this season?

    I'm scared of K. Hunt and Tyreek Hill. This team does not do well against that kind of speed. Alex Smith does not make many mistakes, and this will be one of the top 2 front 7's we have faced. This is absolutely a true test.

    Watson loves the bright lights, hoping he proves it on SNF. If he wins this game we will be the talk of the week.

    I went to school in Missouri, I really don't want to deal with bragging friends. Lets please get this one!!!

    Texans - 34
    Chiefs - 30

    Line went from -3.5 to -1 for Chiefs.

    Nobody knows what Texans team this really is.

    I'm worried about Kelce.

    Hunt is amazing, the guy literally gets shot out of a cannon from the backfield, but Watt and Clowney should contain him

    That guy kills us everytime. A TE but he runs like a wr. Freakish athlete.

    I think the Chiefs might be the only elite team in the NFL... time for us to knock them down a peg

    It feels like we never perform well on primetime (Sunday, Monday). I will be 100% sold on DW4 if he's able to carry this team to a win.

    Unfortunately, I think it'll be a loss.

    Chiefs 30
    Texans 24

    Different story if Doctson doesn't drop a TD or the Redskins secondary doesn't get banged up Monday night. Chiefs are beatable, just gotta hope the Texans are the real deal.

    Idk how to predict anymore. I thought Watson would have more struggles along the way, I keep thinking and saying he’s gonna go through the rookie wall but he’s just an unusual dude. The thing that gives me hope is that Kirk Cousins used his legs to beat KC defensive schemes and they had no answer for it. I’d take Watson’s legs over Kirk cousins everyday of the week and twice on Sunday's.

    I think this game will be close because KC’s offense is very good, and Hunt is playing like the best RB in the league. I’m going to go out on a limb and say Watson puts us in position and Fairbairn wins the game for us and cements himself as the franchise kicker.

    34-31 Texans

    Hunt is a great RB, but I feel like our defense can contain him. Hill is my main concern, followed by Kelce. But, we generally dont do well against speed like Hill....he has potential to burn us over and over. I think the key is for the front 7 to get some pressure on Smith, so that Hill doesnt have enough time to separate himself too much. However, in doing so, the defense needs to contain Smith to not allow him to run.

    Going to be a tough game...it's a coin toss, imo.

    I hadnt seen the line at -3.5...it looks like its been at -1.5 and -1 the entire time. I was in Vegas over the football weekend and would have jumped on Texans at +3.5 if that was available, but never saw it.

    I would't bet for or against the Texans at this point. Pretty much any outcome is seemingly equally possible.

    Cousins scored easily against Chiefs. Watson needs to play his game. Defense must bring it. Hunt and Kelce are tough.

    Hunt is a physical runner; especially up the middle. I hope Cunningham and McKinney are eating their wheaties.

    Loving the turnovers by the defense but it’s not sustainable.

    Pressure hasn’t been what I had hoped with everyone healthy and the secondary hasn’t looked good either.

    What’s funny is we all thought we would have a season like last year needing the defense to carry the
    offense. I’m thinking scores may look more like the Patriots game. Titans looked great on offense until Mariota left.

    A win only if the defense starts playing like we know they can.
