Prediction: The Texans are coming off a hard fought overtime win against the lowly Jaguars on Sunday while the Lions gave up a 4th quarter lead and lost to rival Green Bay. I was guessing this line would have been about 6 or 7 when it came out, so I was really surprised to see 3. This is one of those trap games you see every week, but I just don’t see how the Lions can match up against Houston in this one. I’ll bite and take the Texans.
