When Sunday afternoon arrives for the Houston Texans, they have a lot on the line as they attempt to make franchise history against the Kansas City Chiefs.
There is a big game ahead on Sunday for the Houston Texans as they will face the Kansas City Chiefs in the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs with the winner advancing to the AFC Championship.
The Texans advanced to the Divisional Round game with a 22-19 overtime win over the Buffalo Bills last Saturday in the Wild Card Round at NRG Stadium. The Chiefs earned a bye as they are a No. 2 seed in the playoffs to set up the matchup we’ll all witness on Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium.
Remember, earlier this season the Texans defeated the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium, 34-21, and all-time the Chiefs lead the series at 6-5 over the Texans as the two franchises first played each other in 2003. Before this season (Week 6), the last time the Texans faced Kansas City was in 2017 where the Chiefs won, 42-34. Previously, the two teams have met in the 2015 Playoffs with the Chiefs winning 30-0.
This time, the playoff game will be played in Kansas City, and here is a look at the game info on how to watch and listen to the Divisional Round game:

In their win over the Bills last Saturday, the Texans gained 360 total offensive yards, with 141 total rushing yards and 219 total passing yards. They averaged 4.3 yards per carry (33 carries), but there were also seven sacks allowed, some the fault of Watson, and some the fault of the offensive line.
Houston’s defense is coming off a three-sack performance with sacks by Whitney Mercilus, J.J. Watt and Jacob Martin, so that has to be a plus for the Houston defense as they prepare to face a strong offense led by Patrick Mahomes.
Though the Texans are nearly 10-point underdogs before this game takes place, don’t overlook the competitiveness this game can bring because the Texans have proven earlier in the season they can defeat the Chiefs, but this time much more is on the line.
