Unlike last week where I had the Chiefs with the advantage in all but one category, this week’s match-up saw the opponent with more advantages.
This is going to be a tough game for a variety of reasons:

- Revenge is scary
Houston is going to come out swinging in this game, because let’s face it… In 2015, Kansas City owned that city when it came to sports. The Chiefs humiliated the Texans in the playoffs last year, shutting them out and earning their first playoff win in over two decades.
Not to mention, our Royals completed an insane comeback against the Astros when it seemed all but certain that the ‘Stros would be advancing to the ALCS.
If Brock Osweiler wants to become a legend in Houston, he needs to show up big in this one for the Texans. That franchise and that town would love nothing more than for the Chiefs to get curb stomped in this one, and who knows? They might get their wish.
It’ll be a tough game, and unfortunately, the Chiefs have to play this one on the road. It’ll be a hostile environment and I’m sure the Texans have had this game circled on their calendar since the schedules were released in April.
If Alex Smith can take charge of the offense again like he did last week, and if the defense plays like they did in the second half, then Kansas City has a shot in this one. If neither of those things happen or even if one doesn’t happen, the Texans will win their first game against the Chiefs since 2010.
