Is this a “must-win” game for the Houston Texans against the St. Louis Rams this Sunday in Houston?

The Texans can ill afford to lose four straight games this season and drop to two games below the .500 mark, but that will be the case if they would happen to be on the losing side this Sunday.

So, again, I’ll ask, is this a must-win game for the Texans? The longer the week goes and the more I think about it, my answer is yes.

With that said, the 2-3 Texans and the 2-3 Rams both have had their problems this season, and whether it be quarterback play from the Texans or running back troubles from the Rams, neither team is seeing the progression they hoped to accomplish by this point of the 2013 regular season.

As game day nears, here are my 5 Bold Predictions for Sunday’s game.
