Houston, the Eagles may have a problem.
In the second to last week of the 2018 regular season, the Eagles are back home to play the Houston Texans, a squad that may be the hottest team in the entire NFL.
Since starting the season 0-3, the Texans have rattled off nine consecutive wins and find themselves comfortably leading the AFC South.
Similar to the Los Angeles, Houston has playmakers on both sides of the ball. Offensively, they have one of the league’s top receivers with DeAndre Hopkins, averaging nearly 100 receiving yards per game. Defensively, they are led by two vicious pass rushers with J.J. Watt and Jadeveon Clowney. Watt has 11.5 sacks this seasons and Clowney has 7 through 12 games.
This game is certainly winnable for ‘The Birds’ but they must lockdown Hopkins to force Deshaun Watson to look at his other receivers and the Eagles offensive line will need to play as well as they did against Washington last week.
