2. Texans defense will have 3 interceptions vs. Brock Osweiler
Here is something fun for Houston Texans fans to possibly look forward to, and that is to see Brock Osweiler throw interceptions at NRG Stadium, but this time with the opposing team. Again, the problem with this prediction is Osweiler could actually throw the football to one of his actual teammates since they are wearing Dolphins jerseys on Thursday Night Football.
Osweiler isn’t the usual starting quarterback for the Dolphins as he’s taking over for usual starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill, who is inactive for Week 8.
All joking aside, the Texans defense has improved their game tremendously in recent weeks, though Tyrann Mathieu is coming off a game where he sneaked up and had an interception against a backup quarterback in Cody Kessler.
That said, if any team knows the style of play possessed by Osweiler, it is the Texans and head coach Bill O’Brien, so there isn’t much that Osweiler is capable of that O’Brien and the rest of the team won’t know about time game time arrives.
This should be a fun matchup, but my guess is Dolphins Week 8 starting quarterback Osweiler will throw three interceptions in this Thursday Night Football game in Houston.
