Texans vs Chiefs Preview
The Chiefs limp into their matchup with the Texans after a tough loss to the Colts a week ago. Sammy Watkins (hamstring), defensive tackle Chris Jones (groin) and left guard Andrew Wylie (ankle) could all miss the game, while quarterback Patrick Mahomes was seeing hobbling for most of the game with an ankle issue.
“I actually feel pretty good today,” the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback said, via ESPN. “I feel like after the [Colts] game, it was sore after the game. But it’s feeling pretty good today, so I’m glad to be able to go out there and practice on it and get it moving around and stuff like that. I feel like I’ll be fine playing and moving around and still doing what I need to do to win.
“It’s not perfect. I guess you would say that. But it’s good enough where I can run, cut, cut off of it and do all that type of stuff.”
Mahomes still leads the NFL is passing yards by a hefty margin with his 1,831 yards.
The defending MVP has become known for his ridiculous passes, and Texans defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel is urging him to make those kind of throws — especially ones of no-look fashion.
“I hope he throws no-look passes because he doesn’t always hit all of those. I saw one earlier this year that he missed a guy in the end zone on a no-look,” said Crennel during Thursday’s media availability. “If they turn out that way, I’ll take them.”
Texans QB Deshaun Watson isn’t having a bad start to the year himself, collecting 1,364 yards and 11 touchdowns this season. He’s thrown just one interception. When asked to rank the quarterbacks in the NFL, Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu couldn’t make a huge distinction.
”1-A and 1-B, in my humble opinion,” Mathieu said. “His everyday approach [and] his consistency reminds me a lot of Patrick. [Doesn’t] get too high, doesn’t get too low. Never looks at the scoreboard. Always feels like he’s capable of getting his team back into the game. Definitely a very good quarterback.”
The Texans put up a season high 53 points against the Falcons last week, and with the offensive firepower of the Chiefs, this one could turn into a shootout — especially if Mahomes is feeling closer to 100 percent.
“He’s been doing a heck of a job putting the Chiefs in contention each and every game, and putting up a lot of great numbers,” Watson said of Mahomes. “Because that’s what he’s been doing his whole career, and just being that leader — he’s doing a heck of a job for that organization.”
The Chiefs are 4-point home favorites for the game, which has a total of 55.5 points.
