I’m afraid to make any positive prediction with the Houston Texans anymore, because they’ve done nothing but let me down all season.
The boiling point was last Sunday when they couldn’t do much of anything against the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars, losing their ninth straight game.
This week, there is very little positive I can predict for the Texans as they host the New England Patriots, who enter the game with an 8-3 overall record. The Texans are 2-9 overall and haven’t won a game since mid-September, so there is a big difference between the two franchises.
The Patriots have owned the Texans in four of their five meetings, especially the past two times in 2012 where the Patriots outscored the Texans 83-42, with scores of 42-14 and 41-28 in the divisional round of the playoffs.
Though there isn’t much positive to say about the Texans today, but here is my shot at “5 Bold Predictions” for the game anyway.
