Week 5 – Kansas City Chiefs at Houston Texans

Sunday, October 8th, 2017 (7:30 CST kickoff on NBC)

We’re only five weeks into the season yet the KC Chiefs have already been in the primetime lights three times! That’s a new feeling for Chiefs Kingdom, as we’re used to being neglected when it comes to the big time games.

Week five will see the Chiefs and their 2-2 record hit the road for Houston for a Sunday Night Football match-up with the Texans. These two have played a lot recently, with the Chiefs typically having the last laugh.

Last season the Texans FINALLY beat the Chiefs, but it was in week two. Had they played later on, Kansas City would have crushed Houston in that game because we all saw just how bad Brock Osweiler was as the season progressed. The Chiefs’ poor offensive showing was what lost them that week two match-up a season ago, but we shouldn’t expect the same result in 2017.

Kansas City has really had Houston’s number over the last few years.

This season will be interesting for Houston. They jumped up to draft Deshaun Watson after both Mitchell Trubisky and Patrick Mahomes were taken in the first round and very well could end up starting the National Champion out of Clemson. It’s either him or Tom Savage, and would you really want Savage quarterbacking your team? Exactly.

Maybe I shouldn’t be too confident about the Chiefs rolling into Reliant Stadium and coming out victorious, but Kansas City has really had Houston’s number (in both football and baseball) over the last few years. I think the Chiefs will win this one and get to a 3-2 record.

Houston’s defense is typically pretty good, but their offense is lackluster and they’re not even sure what they’re doing at the quarterback position yet. If Deshaun Watson plays in this one and performs well, however, Chiefs fans could be wishing to go back in time and draft him instead. Let’s hope that’s not the case here.

Prediction: The Chiefs put on another show like they did in the 2015 playoffs and stomp the Texans to the curb. 27-14, Chiefs.

Standout Player: Justin Houston parties hard in the city in which he shares a name with. He has three sacks on whichever Texans quarterback is thrown to the fire, and the Chiefs defense is rockin’, baby!
