The Buffalo Bills haven’t missed a beat from last season’s AFC Championship run. That doesn’t mean the Houston Texans can’t steal a win.

Ah yes, the team that Tyrod Taylor saved from mediocrity in 2017 with a playoff appearance and then Josh Allen has furthered that development into making the Bills an actual Super Bowl contender. The Bills are coming off back-to-back wins over the Miami Dolphins and Washington Football Team.

The Bills really should be 3-0, but somehow they are the same team that lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 1. If anyone saw Pittsburgh play on Sunday, then you’re wondering how that was even possible.

So where are the Buffalo Bills susceptible when they take the field against the Houston Texans in Orchard Park, New York on Sunday? There are a few positions that were weak spots coming into the season, and those haven’t really changed all that much.

If the Houston Texans can take advantage of these weaker position groups, then expect a close game and potentially an upset win for the Texans. This is only going to happen if the injury report allows the return of a handful of key players like Safety Justin Reid, and wide receivers Nico Collins and Danny Amendola.

Missing Taylor as the starting quarterback is going to really hurt, as evident by the Browns game where Taylor had the Texans competing for a big win until his injury happened. Davis Mills, now with an NFL start underneath his belt is going into another gauntlet- this time on the road.
