Texans at Redskins Pregame

The Battle of 6-3.

The Battle of division leaders.

Texans at Redskins on Sunday will have a lot of implications to each team individually. Both squads are looking to gain even more separation atop their divisions. For the Redskins, they continue to ride the coattails of a strong defensive unit and Adrian Peterson seemingly turning back the clock out of the backfield. For Houston, this is a team that started 0-3  then thanks to Deshaun and their defensive front has rattled off 6 in a row.

This game has all the ingredients of being an ugly 1 pm game, with two good defenses that could cause both quarterbacks issues all game. This contest will be won in the trenches in a matchup of veterans versus a young defensive line. On one sideline you have J.J Watt and Jadaveon Clowney, both established NFL defenders. On the other sideline, you have an Alabama defensive line led by Johnathan Allen with players all in year two or less. When it comes to quarterbacks you have the ever so safe Alex Smith versus the ever so risky Deshaun Watson. In my opinion, this game comes down to which quarterback has more time to throw the ball. Especially for Deshaun who has Deandre Hopkins and now Demariyus Thomas u, like the Redskins.

My pick? Texans 27 Redskins 17. Houston is fresh off a bye week while Washington is fresh off a sloppy win against Tampa Bay. I expect Watson to be fresh, accurate and careful with the football and I expect Adrian Peterson to be held under 65 yards.
