MOTIVATIONAL VIDEO

THREE 2 WATCH

1. Eric Fisher v J.J. Watt

Houston is going to find a way to match up Watt with Fisher as often as they can. This will be one of Fisher’s biggest tests of the season, and will give us an idea of how well Fisher will be able to handle Von Miller.

2. Passing Game

What kind of improvements and adjustments have been made a week after posting only 217 total yards of offense against the Oakland Raiders? Kansas City has had nothing going for them on offense outside of Jamaal Charles. The return of Anthony Fasano should help.

3. Front Seven

Part of the reason why Case Keenum is starting for the Houston Texans is because Houston sees him as a more mobile quarterback. Slowing down scrambling quarterbacks has been an issue for the Chiefs defense at times this season, so the ability to contain Keenum while also slowing down Arian Foster and Ben Tate is going to be an important task. This is also where the game will probably be won or lost.

TAILGATE BEER

So long as the Chiefs defense is going to play this way, Bully! Porter is the official beer of the Kansas City Chiefs.

HOUSTON TEXANS

1. Case Keenum

Keenum is making his first start of his career after going undrafted in the 2012 NFL draft. At Houston – the college – Keenum set several NCAA passing records and led the Cougars to some of the best seasons as a program.

2. J.J. Watt

Watt is potentially the best defensive player in the NFL. Containing him is going to be a difficult task for a Chiefs offensive line that is still learning how to work together.

3. Turnovers

Houston has had a hell of a time holding onto the ball this season, turning it over 15 times in six. This includes 11 turnovers in their last three games.

GO CHIEFS!
