Houston Texans vs Kansas City Chiefs 01/12/2020
The Houston Texans cannot afford to start slowly against a team like the Kansas City Chiefs. Though they proved that they can turn things around, the case may not be the same against the Chiefs. QB DeShaun Watson needs to keep things check offensively. He led Houston last game with 247 passing yards and a touchdown but may need to do more. On the defensive side, the Texans need to pay close attention to Patrick Mahomes. He has been superb this season together with running backs Damien Williams and LeSean McCoy.

A week of rest could work for the Kansas City Chiefs who are hoping to get over the playoff hump. They are riding on the crest of a six-game win streak with their defense running on all cylinders. Patrick Mahomes needs to continue his mastery quarterbacking the offense. He has thrown for 4,031 yards and 26 touchdowns while throwing only five interceptions. Defensively, the Chiefs should be fine for as long as they hold up. Kansas City’s pass rush defense is giving up only 221.4 yards per game.
