Get ready for some football! The Detroit Lions are on a three-game winning streak. Will they keep it going when they meet the Houston Texans in the Lone Star State on Oct. 30? Don’t miss this hard-hitting game!
Can the Detroit Lions make it four in a row when they meet the Houston Texans at the NRG Stadium? This could be the match that makes or breaks one team’s playoff hopes. It’s going to get dirty down in the south, so be sure you tune in at 1:00 PM ET to see every single second!
Detroit comes into this game 4-3, having on the last three games in a row. Plus, the games that the Lions have lost were decided by a single possession. That means that the games have been close, giving all fans of Matthew Stafford’s, 28, crew heart attacks. Matt has thrown 8 touchdowns during this three-game winning streak, and has thrown 74% of his passes on three occasions during this season, per The Bleacher Report.
“I really don’t pay too much attention to it,” Matt said, when asked about the praise he’s getting as Detroit’s quarterback, per CBS Sports. “I just care about how I perform for the guys in this locker room and this coaching staff and the owners and the people affected by the Lions. That’s what I care about. Preparing as hard as I possibly can to play well for those people.”
Matt will face a tough challenge in Houston. Texas remains undefeated at home, despite being 4-3. They’re recovering from a 27-9 spanking during Monday Night Football, courtesy of the Denver Broncos. Plus, the Lions’ winning is streak has only happened in Detroit (though, they did win their first game in Indianapolis against the Colts.) A trip down to the Lone Star state might be too much for Detroit to deal with.
The lack of the injured JJ Watt, 27, has clearly affected the Texans, as Houston is ranked 29th in the NFL for rushing defense. They’ve allowed 135.4 yards per game. If they are still rattled from Denver in this game, that undefeated-at-home streak is going to be snapped in half. Yikes.
Who do you think will win this game, HollywoodLifers? Do you think the Lions will leave Houston with a loss or will the Texans trample Detroit into the Texan dirt?
