The Houston Texans will face the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, and for this Texans team, just how good are they entering Week 4? Let’s make some predictions.
Are the Houston Texans really a team that is good enough to be just a last-second field goal away from being 3-0 to start the season? Besides the Week 1 loss to the New Orleans Saints when the Saints kicked a field goal as time expired, the Houston Texans have won two games this season, and they have done so in closely played fashion.
In Week 2, the Texans won against the Jacksonville Jaguars, 13-12, and last weekend the Texans defeated the Los Angeles Chargers, 27-20, meaning all three of the Texans final scores thus far this season have been by seven or fewer points, which is a trend that happened last season too.

That brings us to this Sunday with the Texans hosting the Carolina Panthers in a game that has much intrigue with Carolina not having Cam Newton under center. Rather, it will be Kyle Allen, who is coming off a solid game last weekend.
Against the Arizona Cardinals last week, the Panthers won by a 38-20 score, so something will have to give as Houston hasn’t allowed more than 30 points in a game this season.
Predicting how this game will play out is tough as the Texans are just four-point favorites, but with the Texans, as shown above with their scores this season, that has become customary in every game that they will be closely played and the game will come down to the fourth quarter with the game on the line.
