Houston Texans vs. San Diego Chargers: Staff predictions

1 of 4

The Toro Times writers give their best guess as to what will happen when the Houston Texans face off against the San Diego Chargers at NRG Stadium

Fans are most likely not over the letdown from Monday Night Football last week yet. The Houston Texans had chances to win and they let it slip through their fingers.

Of course the refs made it hard. They blew several calls, all of which went against the Texans, and helped Oakland overcome a late deficit.

Even so, Houston had a chance at the end to tie things up and they ended up going conservative with their play calling. They did the same with a late fourth down play where they decided to punt rather than keep fighting.

In the end, they played hard but lost yet again on the road. The one-score loss was hard to swallow, but it showed a lot of promise as Houston was facing one of the best teams in the league.

No one gave them a chance given the Raiders standing as a top dog and of course the Texans woes on the road. Still, they gave it their all and were rather impressive in defeat.

So can they get some confidence from that narrow loss as they get ready to play at home against the 4-6 San Diego Chargers who are fresh off a bye week? Our staff writers will do their best at trying to answer that very question.
