Defenses headed in different directions meet Sunday when the Saints head to NRG Stadium to take on the Houston Texans. Houston has won three consecutive games for the first time since 2012, and opened as a three-point favorite according to OddsShark.com.
After 11 weeks of the Texans roller coaster season, they are 5-5 with a solid chance of making the playoffs. Brian Hoyer is expected to return to the lineup for the Texans, after spending one week on the sidelines with concussion symptoms.
For the Texans, their win streak can be attributed to improving play on defense. J.J. Watt hasn’t been getting the MVP push like last season, but he’s having an even better year at his position. His 11.5 sacks lead the NFL, and he has at least one sack in four straight games.
