Houston Texans Schedule Prediction: Weeks 5-7

Week 5: vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

At least the Houston Texans are home for their first game following the head coaching change after the firing of Bill O’Brien. This is a very winnable game for the Texans because the Jaguars have lost their past three, and they don’t have the greatest roster.

On paper, the Texans are a more talented team, and they should win this game. Houston should be motivated to impress after what this week has already brought, and they should earn their first win of the season. Prediction: Win

Week 6 at Tennessee Titans

This is another game for the Houston Texans that won’t be easy as the Tennessee Titans are one of the better teams in the entire AFC, being they are 3-0 this season. Right now the Titans are battling some issues with COVID-19 spreading throughout their franchise, as their Week 4 game was postponed against the Steelers.

When the Houston Texans have to face the Titans, it will be a very big test to see exactly where the franchise stands in two weeks without O’Brien. The Texans don’t stack up well with stopping the run game of the Titans with Derrick Henry, so unless something improves fast, the Texans will have another long day on defense. Prediction: Loss

Week 7 vs. Green Bay Packers

Here is another team that the Texans could struggle with as the Packers are the leaders in the NFC North and currently 4-0 overall. The Packers have Aaron Rodgers playing at a high level once again, making lesser known wide receivers play at his high level as well. The Green Bay offense will be too much for the Texans defense to overcome, especially if the secondary doesn’t pick things up quickly. Prediction: Loss
