Houston Texans 2022 schedule prediction: Weeks 1-5
Week 1: The Texans surprise in Week 1 on the road against Tennessee
The Texans get a rematch of their 2021 season finale and waste no time. Houston races out to a 14-0 nothing lead, just like they did the last time they went on the road to Nashville. Davis Mills leads the offense into a stunning upset of the former number one seed in the AFC.
Week 2: Houston’s firepower overwhelmed in Dallas
On a rare road trip to play their in-state rival, Houston cannot keep up with the Dallas offense, which has been one of the best in the league the past few years. So it’s a big learning day for Mills and the Texans.
Week 3: The Houston Texans beat up on the Jaguars as offense stays hot
A much-needed rebound is in store after losing to the Cowboys, and the Jaguars are one of the best teams to get that win. Instead of the passing game being the star, the rushing attack will provide four rushing scores, along with a pick-six of Trevor Lawrence.
Week 4: The Houston Texans win the possible “Deshaun Watson Bowl.”
It’s a close one here on Sunday night, but a Ka’imi Fairbairn field goal with less than 2:30 to go will set the Houston Texans’ defense up to be the heroes here tonight. It’s a rare primetime appearance and win for Houston.
Week 5: The L.A. Chargers get their revenge over Houston
After missing a ton of key players due to covid in 2021, L.A. comes back with a vengeance and shows the NFL world that loss was a fluke. Houston finishes with a 3-2 record in their first five weeks.
