Why Houston Texans Will Win
The passing game has been on fire since the coaching change.
Deshaun Watson, Will Fuller and company have gone off, with the air show cranking out 267 yards or more in each of the last six games. Now it gets to go against a good Cleveland pass defense that got lit up by Joe Burrow two weeks ago and had problems against everyone but Las Vegas, who spent most of its time running last week.
Why Cleveland Browns Will Win
Cleveland is about to run as much as it wants to.
The Houston defensive front has been gouged all year – it’s the worst run D in the NFL – and now Nick Chubb is back in the mix for the Brown attack. Own the ground, control the clock a bit, and hope for the pass rush to get to Watson enough to force a slew of quick throws and third down chances.
Get that running game going and give Baker Mayfield a whole lot of easy throws – Houston doesn’t do anything to take the ball away or pick off any passes.
Fantasy Football Player To Watch
RB Nick Chubb, Cleveland
Chubb returns after missing six weeks with a sprained MCL. He gets a smash match-up against an awful Houston D that gives up big yards in chunks to anyone who can run regularly. Chubb reportedly looked good in practice, but he’ll likely be on a bit of a pitch count. He’ll get his chances around the goal line, though.
What’s Going To Happen
Houston will continue with its fireworks, but it’ll give up a whole lot of yards and points just as quickly. The grinding of the Browns running game will be the steady production to score throughout, and the D will hold serve late.
