Houston Texans vs Detroit Lions 11/26/2020
The Houston Texans scored a victory in NFL Week 11 and they bounced-back pretty well after a bad loss against the Cleveland Browns the previous week. They were able to win over the New England Patriots in their most recent game by seven points, 27-20. This improves their record to 3-7 and their playoff chances are still alive. Deshaun Watson deserves some credit for carrying the team’s offense during their game against the Browns as he tallied 344 yards, 76% completion and two touchdown passes. He also was the most efficient in rushing as he got 36 yards in 6 attempts and it resulted in a touchdown.
Players to watch: D. Watson QB (GP 9 CMP 205 ATT 301 CMP% 68.1 YDS 2539 AVG 8.4 YDS/G 308 LNG 77 TD 18 INT 5 SACK 26 SYL 140 RTG 107), D. Johnson RB (GP 8 ATT 103 YDS 408 AVG 4 LNG 29 BIG 1 TD 3 YDS/G 51 FUM 0 LST 0 FD 23), W. Fuller V WR (GP 9 REC 41 TGTS 60 YDS 628 AVG 15.3 TD 6 LNG 77 BIG 8 YDS/G 69.8 FUM 0 LST 0 YAC 191 FD 28).
There is not much to talk about with how the Detroit Lions responded in a very important game against the Carolina Panthers. It is just they were shut down by one of the least performing teams in the NFL and laid a big egg in the field. The win could have improved the Lions to a 5-5 record and a good shot at the playoffs but instead, they went down to 4-6 and are now tied with the San Francisco 49ers and Minnesota Vikings. They are now hosting the Houston Texans and even if they had a better record, they are picked as the underdogs because of the horrible outing against the Panthers.
