In National Football League Week 16, we will see Houston Texans at Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Houston Texans are 9-5 and they are coming off an upset win over the Titans on the road. QB Deshaun Watson finished the game with 243 passing yards, 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions in a game where the offensive line could not protect him much. RB Carlos Hyde added 104 rushing yards and a touchdown while DeAndre Hopkins was again above all receivers with his 119 yards receiving on just 6 receptions.
On the other side, we have the Tampa Bay Buccaneers who are 7-7 but they will be playing without star wide receiver Goodwin in this one. The team is on a 4-game winning streak with wins over Atlanta, Jacksonville, Indianapolis and Detroit. Last time out, Jameis Winston turned on beast mode and he finished with the remarkable 458 passing yards, 4 touchdowns and 1 interception. He did not receive any help from the running game as Ronald Jones II had just 23 rushing yards on 11 carries.
The Buccaneers are playing a lot better, especially on offense and I expect this to turn into a shootout. Both sides have the personnel to make the game interesting but I believe that Watson is the skilled and experienced quarterback and Houston will win.
