A date at home against the Justin Herbert-led L.A. Chargers is what’s in store for the Texans in Week 16.

Who would have thought that the Texans would be the ones coming into this game with a victory? Not many. The L.A. Chargers are currently the AFC’s sixth seed, and this game feels like it’s a must-win for L.A.

For Houston, it will be a challenging task stopping one of the best quarterbacks in the league. But will Brandon Staley trust the analytics again and make a scenario where Houston could keep it close?

The Chargers lead the all-time series with a record of 5-2. Houston’s only wins came in 2013 and 2019.

Houston vs. Los Angeles Chargers prediction Week 16

The Chargers come in averaging 289.9 yards per game through the air, but that doesn’t mean they’re a one-trick pony. This season, Austin Ekeler has been phenomenal, with 1,347 total yards and 17 scores (10 rushing, seven receiving).

For those who are still alive in their fantasy playoff bracket and own either Herbert or Ekeler, they’re going to be very happy. Of course,  Houston will score here and there, but the Chargers will make this game theirs early on and never look back.
