The Texans defense will force at least 3 turnovers

This has the potential to be a HUGE opportunity for the Texans’ defense this week, especially against McGloin making his first career start.

Who knows what to expect from McGloin? His senior college season under Penn State head coach Bill O’Brien was the best of his four years of college football.

What I don’t like for McGloin is he’s facing the likes of J.J. Watt, Shiloh Keo and D.J. Swearinger, who are the leaders of the Texans’ defense. One minus for the Texans’ defense is their lack of interceptions, with just four on the season.

I know the defense hasn’t played up to their high standards at times, but against the Raiders, this unit could possibly have their best game of the season.
