There is a fighter’s chance that the Texans can snag a victory from one of the toughest teams in the league.
Head Coach David Culley has worked seamlessly alongside new General Manager Nick Caserio. Both have played a part in rebuilding a roster that had a strong preseason and a blowout Week 1 win. Cleveland’s head coach isn’t a pushover either, as Kevin Stefanski is the reigning Coach of the Year award recipient.
