Detroit Lions will kick-off against Houston Texans on Saturday night from NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas on Saturday. Detroit Lions are looking for an opportunity to bounce back after their first preseason game against New England Patriots. Detroit was certainly no match for the Patriots and they were unable to score more than three points. To make things worse, New England was successful in scoring 31 points. The first week of the preseason did not get well for the Lions and their poor defense is something they must improve on. The Patriots were also strong at the back and the Lions offensive game was as equal as their defense.

Houston Texans had a close match against Green Bay Packers in their first preseason game. The Texans were actually good on the field and they played as a threat to Green Bay. Houston scored 26 points and the Packers managed to score two more to victory. During the second half of the game, Houston played with all their force on their offense. The Texans impressed their fans by scoring 16 points, but their defeat was a heartbreak in the end.

Detroit Lions vs Houston Texans Predictions 8/17/2019

Detroit Lions have to change their perspective of playing before the regular season. The Lions are struggling to make ends meet and playing against Houston Texans are not going to make things any easy. Their game with New England Patriots was a disaster and the Texans will give them an equally tough game. David Fales of Detroit covered just 62 yards as he went 5-14 in their first match. Running back star of the day Ty Johnson played a decent game as he carried the ball thrice for 22 yards.

Houston Texans seem to be dependent on their quarterback Joe Webb III. The Texans witnessed Webb play an impressive game as he took the position of the leading rusher for his team. Webb will be a key player for Houston in the future and he seems to know his way around the ball. In their last game, he managed to reach 286 yards as he went 25-40 along with one touchdown. However, Webb has his own weakness and he was picked twice against the Patriots. Webb has also covered 47 yards by carrying the ball six times for his team while rushing.

Detroit Lions vs Houston Texans. The NFL pick for this match is Houston Texans -4.5.
