Allen throws 2 picks and fumbles

Roberts breaks off a long punt return

JJ Watt is a non-factor

The refs make a couple big calls against us

We have a hard time stopping the run

Our DL can't get to Watson, and his scrambling ability turns into big plays that determine the outcome of the game

We don't score a TD, but kick 3 FG

The game isn't close in the 4th quarter - I get to leave early to beat traffic

Why bother going?

 

No, really, if you're THIS miserable about our chances, why do you spend the money on the trip and ticket?

 

I'll never understand people.

Assuming Fuller is out, the pass defense does its job and the majority of us feel surprisingly/pleasantly confident in not letting Hopkins beat us.Texans play great against teams that don't have a great pass rush, too, and we play better cohesively than having players that can single-handedly generate pressure, so that's a little bit of a concern as well for a QB as gifted as Watson. Hyde/Johnson are a good tandem and whether or not they can get into a rhythm early on will be important for them sustaining drives, especially since we sometimes have fits defending screens and the occasional runs up the gut. 

 

Which JA shows up? If it's the one that can barely complete 50% of his passes against tougher opposition, kiss this game goodbye. If we can sustain drives and turn 3's into 7's, it's easily a winnable game. From what I've seen, heard, and read, the Texans defense is awful (around 400 YPG which is bottom 5) and their short/intermediate passing game should be very exploitable. Big games needed from 10, 88, and 26 along with 19 and 16 keeping them on their toes. 

 

I think the lack of experience and star power of the Texans gives them the slight edge, and even though I think the Bills are in a good spot they usually do better whenever I downplay them around everyone else. 

 

First team to crack 20 wins; 23-20 Texans

Bills win17-10.  On a side note:  here it is 9:15AM on Friday, and ESPN is all Cowboys.  Bills do not exist.  Hope they don't name a Cowboys coach later tonight since it will pre-empt all Sat pre-game coverage.  Geez!!

Rooting for the Bills of course, but just being realistic.

There's a kind of perverse psychosis akin to masochism that enjoys this sort of thing.

The other side of the same coin are the trolls who are always willing to entertain fetishes of that nature.

I find that difficult to believe.

The Texans have made a habit of losing wildcard Saturday. They're not one of the NFL darlings that routinely get calls. They have a porous defense. Josh Allen has faced a string of tough defenses. The Texans are not that. They are a team that can play well, but also is mercurial and throws out the occasional clunker. They lost big to the Broncos, for example. Especially if Fuller is out or unable to contribute beyond a decoy, which will become evident fairly quickly, they are not an offensive juggernaut. On balance, the Bills are probably the more talented team and they are better coached. It's not implausible that Buffalo wins. The Texans could also win, but a blowout Houston victory is not the most likely scenario and so it is not at all "just being realistic" to subscribe to that narrative.

538 should've stopped predicting anything after they whiffed on the 2016 election

Actually they didn't ... sort of.  They do not take electoral college into consideration.  Trump lost the popular vote.

In any event the Bills have been so healthy all season 538 has great data on them.  But as they say, "any given Sunday",  or Saturday ;)

Im calling it: This is Josh Allen's national moment where he shines and elevates his status: 19-28 255 and 3 TD

 

Bills win 27-21
