Week four is here, and the Houston Texans are playing the Los Angeles Chargers. The Texans have a lot on the line in this game. They have yet to win this season, and with the Jaguars in the AFC South lead, Houston must get a victory to keep close.
The Chargers are dealing with some important injuries on their offensive line and defense. Can the Texans take advantage and shock the world with a win over the Chargers just like they did last year?
For that to happen, players are going to need to step up big time, and below are three Texans players who need to have a big game as these are three players to watch in Week 4.
3. Davis Mills – Quarterback
The Houston Texans have a difficult matchup going up against the Los Angeles Chargers. The Chargers may be 1-2, but their entire team is stacked with talent from top to bottom. They are battling some injures on defense which the Houston quarterback needs to take advantage of.
Davis Mills and the Texans’ offense are going up against one of the top pass defenses in the league. It will be challenging to face JC Jackson, Asante Samuel, and Derwin James as they are mainstays on the LA defense.
The Chargers are without superstar pass rusher Joey Bosa (59.5 career sacks), hopefully leaving more time in the pocket for Mills to work with. If the offensive line stands up to the Chargers’ pass rush, Mills must have a good game. Texans fans are from happy with the regression Mills has shown this season, and if he doesn’t have a good game, fans at NRG Stadium might let him know in Week 4.
If the Texans have any chance to win, Mills must show improvement. His accuracy has been awful. Mills and the Texans beat the Chargers last year, but can Mills lead the Texans to their second win of the season?
