My Momma taught me that the team with the better quarterback usually wins.
My Dad, who actually played and coached in the NFL, preached that games are won and lost in the trenches. His father, Grandpa Bob, always went with the hot hand. All that favors the Lions. Family tree aside, I am troubled by the Texans performance the first 3 1/2 quarters of the Colts game.
I’ve come to accept that the Texans can’t match-up with the elite teams, especially on the road. But it is particularly troubling that the offense was dominated for most of the game at home by the Colts’ mediocre defense. Still, with everything seeming to favor the Lions I think this game is the Texans’ 2016 Alamo.
Well, actually we lost at the Alamo, but you get the point. It was a gallant stand. The Texans offense is better than it has played. It has to rally this week or the rest of the season is downhill. Top to bottom the Texans have the stronger roster. I think the coaches and players rise to the occasion.
Give the points and take the Over. Texans win 27-24.
