Current Records: Houston 3-7; Detroit 4-6
What to Know
The Houston Texans will head to the streets to face the Detroit Lions at 12:30 pm ET Thursday at Ford Field. Texas should still feel good after winning, while Detroit will look to ship right.
Houston beat the New England Patriots 27-20 last Sunday. The team collected 21 points in the first half and used them to win. It was another great night for QB Houston Deshaun Watson, who passed for two TDs and 344 yards on 37 attempts in addition to rushing for one TD and 36 yards.
Meanwhile, Detroit finished well behind the Carolina Panthers when they played last Sunday, losing 20 times. QB Matthew Stafford had a pretty forgettable play, making only 178 yards on 33 attempts.
The next match is expected to be over soon, with Houston only winning by 3 favorite points. They didn’t treat bettors too well in the past (they were 3-7), but they might deserve a chance now after beating a two-game spread in a row.
Texas ‘win took them to 3-7 while the Lions’ defeat cost them 4-6. Two defensive numbers to remember before kickoff: Houston is the worst NFL in hurried yards allowed per game, with 159.3 on average. Detroit has endured some difficulties of their own as they stumble in the fight with the fastest touchdowns allowed in the league, having given up 17 this season. Maybe one of these Achilles heels will trip the losing team.
