Well I can understand your concern. the way this team has played of late
gives anyone some concern.
The struggles in Detriot ; the loss to the JETs ; the domination by Miami
- gives plenty to be concerned about.
Add to that, the key players you mentioned being unhealthy and likely not
to play puts this team in a difficult situation.
Everyone says Houston is a bad team but that doesn't mean they don't
have a lot of talent.
Look at their wins and losses.
They beat Jacksonville TWICE! and one of those games was just a month ago. The lost to Titians way by 6 points but they put up 20 points.
They did this against a team that has been improving and kept the Colts
explosive offense to 17 points just the week before.
I expect the PATs to win but if they don't go into this game highly
motivated and if they can't find the key to turn the offense on ...they could
lose. Defense alone will not win this game.
Sorry I can't talk you out of your concern.
