What to know

The Houston Texans will head out on the road to face off against the Detroit Lions at 12:30 a.m. ET Thursday at Ford Field. Texas still looks good after the win, while Detroit will be looking to perfect the ship.

Houston defeated the New England Patriots 27–20 last Sunday. The team scored 21 points in the first half and held them to victory. It was another big night for Houston QB Deshaun Watson, who passed for two TDs and 344 yards on 37 attempts, in addition to a TD and 36 yards rushing.

Meanwhile, Detroit managed a good deal behind the Carolina Panthers when they played last Sunday, losing 20 to nothing. QB Matthew Stafford was a very forgetful game, only for 178 yards on 33 attempts.

This next game is expected to be close, with Houston going just 3 points to favorites. They did not treat the bookies all that well in the past (they are 3-7), but they may be worth taking a chance now after beating two games spread in a row.

The Texas win defeated them 3-7 while the Lions defeat brought them down 4-6. Two defensive numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: Houston ranks among the worst in the NFL, averaging 159.3 per game. Detroit has experienced some formidable struggles of its own, as they stumble into matchups with the most rushing touchdowns in the league, losing 17 on the season. It is possible that one of these Achilles’ heel will triple the losing team.
