Will Trevor Lawrence perform well against the Houston Texans on Sunday and for years to come?

It’s been a while since the NFL has seen anyone like Lawrence come around. Heck, the last person to have that kind of hype had his last name start with the same letter (Andrew Luck of Stanford).  By now we all know what Lawrence did at the college level. Can he transform the 28th-ranked offense from last season?

Bringing in Marvin Jones to pair with Leviska Shenault and D.J. Chark (when healthy) is a good move for the black and teal brethren of the east. Jones always has one or two outburst games in which he scores three or more touchdowns. That’s certainly possible with Lawrence throwing the ball.

What will be the most interesting part of Lawrence’s game come Sunday is when he’ll tuck the ball and run. Lawrence has the ability to take it the distance with his legs, and his big frame can absorb hits pretty well.

Lovie Smith, the Houston Texans Defensive Coordinator will have to detect the pace of play that Lawrence is giving in the first few drives. It may even call for a QB spy, especially if Meyer’s offense gets college option-heavy.

We are predicting a Texans win here at Toro Times and it should be a fun game with both teams making spectacular plays. We’ll see how it plays out, but if the Houston Texans can nullify two of these three key factors, then the chances of victory will greatly increase.
