Game: Houston Texans (6-5) at Buffalo Bills (5-6)

Prediction: A few weeks back and this would have seemed like the Texans were in for a blow out. Houston was looking bad all around and Buffalo was the surprise team of the AFC. Now the Texans storm into Orchard Park, New York riding a four game winning streak to take on the Bills, who have dropped two straight.

Buffalo has a great running game, so the Texans defenders need to be ready to make some key stops, and their quarterback Tyrod Taylor is explosive, but inconsistent. Their defense though hasn’t been as scary as many thought, which means Brian Hoyer and company should be able to find some holes to exploit, even if they manage to slow down the freak of a player named DeAndre Hopkins.

In the end, Houston will do just enough on offense and make a few key third down stops to make it five in a row.

Final score: Houston Texans 21, Buffalo Bills 17
