Rant My Life: Looking Ahead at Houston Texans vs. Detroit Lions
One of the best parts about Thanksgiving over the last couple of years has been the NFL deciding to give fans not two, but three fun games to watch–with the Houston Texans and Detroit Lions getting things started in the afternoon.
It’s been a tale of two different stories so far for these two teams as the Texans control their own destiny when it comes to earning the No. 1 seed in the AFC while the Lions have been a disappointment for the most part this year with a 4-6 record. If Houston has any chance of staying on top of the AFC, their defense will need to play better than they did last weekend against the Jacksonville Jaguars in which they barely squeezed by in overtime after surrendering 37 points.
As for Detroit, if they have any shot at making a late playoff run–they’re going to need to figure out a way to come through on Thursday with a big win considering how well the rest of the NFC North is playing. After winning three of four games to return to .500, the Lions enter Thursday’s game coming off back-to-back losses to the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers–giving them an 0-4 record in the NFC North this season.
There’s no question these two offenses have the potential to be two of the best in football–which means Thursday’s game could easily turn into a shootout. The fact that Detroit hasn’t won on Thanksgiving since 2003 is already depressing enough–so it should be interesting to see if they can end that streak on Thursday.
