The Houston Texans will win by 7 points, helping the Philadelphia Eagles

If any Philadelphia Eagles fans read this, they should be Houston Texans fans for a week. A win by Houston and Philadelphia would move the Eagles up to the sixth seed in the NFC playoff race, and meanwhile, San Francisco would drop to seventh and have to face the Rams on the road to get into the playoffs.

Houston will win this game by seven points, especially if Trey Lance has to play. Although, in the two games in which Lance has seen a substantial amount of playing time, Lance is 24/47 for 349 yards and two touchdowns through the air.

San Francisco’s weird “we don’t want to play you, but we secretly want to play you” approach has messed with Lance’s head and development, leaving him to struggle in his rookie season. Houston has a prime opportunity to win this game, and it might be the victory that secures David Culley another year.

It should be fun come Sunday. Let’s see who comes out victorious.
