The Houston Texans are set to take on the Trey Lance-version of the San Francisco 49ers, and here’s how they can steal a win.
As the Houston Texans prepare to battle the second California-based NFL team in as many weeks, they certainly do have a chance to play spoiler to playoff scenario of that of the San Francisco 49ers. The main reason is that this game is winnable is due to the fact that the third-overall pick in this year’s draft, Trey Lance, will most likely start.
That’s great news for Texans fans as it’s who they would rather face. Lance has hardly played this season, due to reasons unknown even to 49ers fans. But what are the other keys to victory that the Houston Texans need to use to win?
Deebo Samuel has been one of the best all-purpose weapons in the NFL this year, and whenever you’re taking on one of the Bosa brothers (this week it’s Nick) you have to be ready for a trench fight upfront.
If the Houston Texans are victorious today, then Philadelphia Eagles fans will also be signing Houston’s praises. A win by Houston and Philadelphia means that the Eagles and 49ers swap places in the NFC wildcard race (currently: Philadelphia is the seventh seed, San Francisco is the sixth).
It’s going to be a fight, but it’s the game the Texans can win.
