Carolina Panthers vs. Houston Texans Pick Prediction 9/23/2021
Panthers at Texans—NFL pick is Carolina Panthers and Houston Texans to play under the total of 43.5. Houston will be without starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor who hits the injured reserve with a hamstring injury. Rookie Davis Mills will get the start at quarterback. Mills was a third round pick out of Stanford who was often injured giving him limited experience coming out of college. In relief of Taylor last week Mills went 8 of 18 for 102 yards and 5.7 yards per pass attempt. Texans go to a conservative game plan with their rookie on a short week. Panthers defense has been outstanding holding opponents to 190 yards per game, 2.9 yards per rush and 4.9 yards per pass attempt. Carolina held New Orleans to 7 points last week. Thursday night always tough for the traveling team. This is the Panthers first road game. Carolina is not giving Sam Darnold help on the ground as the team averages 3.3 yards per rush. Play Carolina and Houston under 43.5.
