The Texans haven’t been an issue for the Eagles during most of their first five meetings.
It doesn’t get much better than a 5-0 record versus one team, unless of course that record is extended to 6-0. The Eagles have never lost to the Houston Texans, and the hope is that trend continues in 2022.
Their last meeting was Philly’s toughest as the Birds had to thwart a late-game rally to preserve the victory in 2018 after nearly losing a comfortable 29-16 fourth-quarter lead. The latter stage of the fourth quarter was truly exciting. Houston would score two touchdowns to take a 30-29 lead with 2:04 left in the contest.
Philly got the ball back, and the offense orchestrated an 11-play, 72-yard game-winning drive that concluded with Jake Elliott nailing a 35-yard field goal to seal the 32-20 come-from-behind victory.
Houston hasn’t really challenged Philadelphia in any other meeting as the average margin of victory in those games is 13 points. There are no guarantees in football, but for all intents and purposes, their Week 9 meeting should be another that the Eagles come out on top of.
The Texans are poorly run, and the Birds are truly a better team. Another double-digit win should be the expectation.
