According to The Football Database, the Chargers lead the all-time series against the Texans at 5-1 with the Texans winning against the Chargers on Sept. 9, 2013 by a 31-28 score in San Diego when the Chargers represented that city.
This season, the Texans are 1-1 with a loss to the New Orleans Saints by a last-second field goal, and last week the Texans were winners over the Jacksonville Jaguars by a 13-12 score. Houston hasn’t played their best football yet, and they haven’t reached their overall potential thus far this season.
They need to show improvement from their first two games played, because the Chargers offer a strong opposition with veteran quarterback Philip Rivers and wide receiver Keenan Allen leading the way on offense, plus they have running back Austin Ekeler, who has 29 rushes this season for 124 yards with two touchdowns, while averaging 4.3 yards per carry.
The Texans on offense also have a strong core with not only quarterback Deshaun Watson and wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, but it has been tough not to be impressed by Carlos Hyde through the first two games this season.
This season, Hyde is averaging 5.8 yards per carry on 30 attempts this season. That average has allowed him to rush for 173 yards, and don’t forget he wouldn’t be the top focus on the running back depth chart if not for Lamar Miller being injured in the preseason.
The Texans and Chargers should be a great chance to watch an excellent football game in the late afternoon hours. Both teams have the ability to play high-quality football, but the winner will come down to which team plays the most complete game in Week 3.
