December 4, 2015
On Sunday, J.J. Watt and the Houston Texans will go to Buffalo, New York to play Tyrod Taylor and the Bills. In their most recent game, the Texans beat Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints 24-6. They have improved to a record of 6-5, and they are currently in second place for AFC South. The Bills just played Alex Smith and the Kansas City Chiefs. They lost 30-22. Buffalo has fallen to a record of 5-6 and are in third place in AFC East.
Brian Hoyer leads Houston in passing this season. Hoyer has thrown for 1,909 yards, completing 162 out of 264 passes. He has 15 touchdowns on the season.
Alfred Blue leads the Texans in rushing. Blue has carried the ball 123 times for a total of 430 yards. He averages over three yards per carry and has two touchdowns on the season.
Former Clemson Tiger DeAndre Hopkins leads the Texans in receiving this season. He has caught 81 passes this season 1081 yards. Hopkins averages 13.3 yards per catch and has nine touchdowns this season.
Tyrod Taylor, who replaced EJ Manuel, is Buffalo’s leading passer this year. Taylor has completed 165 out of 250 passes this season, wracking up 1960 yards through the air. He has 14 touchdowns on the season.
LeSean McCoy leads the Bills in rushing. He has collected 680 yards rushing this season on 152 carries. McCoy averages four and a half yards per carry and has three touchdowns on the season.
Sammy Watkins, who was a teammate of DeAndre Hopkins in college, leads the team in receiving this year. Watkins has caught 31 passes this season for a total of 526 yards. He is averaging an astonishing 17 yards per catch and has five touchdowns on the season.
For this game, I’m taking the Texans. They are on a roll! J.J. Watt himself has more sacks than the entire Bills’ front seven. Brian Hoyer has been having success in the pocket. The Bills started off the season looking hot, like a playoff team, but in these recent games they’ve slumped.
