State of the Texans:
The Houston Texans are back at the game of football and are heading into the halfway point of the NFL season. The opponent this week is none other than the Buffalo Bills and the return of Mario Williams to Reliant. Williams will take the headlines but there are other Bills’ players that the Texans will need to watch for.
The Bills may be streaky at times but they boast a potent running game with C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson, an offensive line that has only given up 8 sacks all season, and defensive tackles in Marcell Dareus (331 lbs.) and Kyle Williams (303 lbs.) who can control the interior of the defense. Also, ball hawking safety Jarius Bryd is an underrated player who is the captain of the Bills defense and sets the tone for them in the secondary. The Bills are nothing to sleep on because they have plenty of playmakers on the field for them.
Let’s take a look.
