Last week was a lot of firsts for the Houston Texans as it was the first win of the 2023 season but also the first win as head coach for DeMeco Ryans and rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud. It was an impressive victory as the Texans were in control almost the entire game and won by 20 points over the Jacksonville Jaguars by a final score of 37-17.
The Texans return home for Week 4 with a matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers, who enter this game with a 2-1 record after back-to-back wins over the Cleveland Browns and Las Vegas Raiders. The Texans will be looking to get back to .500 on the season but this week might be tough with the injuries they are dealing with and the players likely to miss this game.
The Texans have three key players miss the first two practices of the week which includes offensive tackles Laremy Tunsil and Josh Jones and starting linebacker Denzel Perryman. With that in mind, these are four bold predictions for this weekend's game.
