In this weekend’s AFC Wild Card, the Texans are set to face the Buffalo Bills while the New England Patriots will face the Tennessee Titans. DraftKings Sportsbook has listed the Texans 3 points ahead of their opponents, while the Patriots have been listed 5 points favorite over the Titans.
The action will begin on Saturday when the Texans, who are the AFC South Champions, will host the Buffalo Bills, who held the first wild-card position in the AFC. The Bills have not had much luck, having the last 5 consecutive postseason games, with their last win being in 1995. Quarterback Josh Allen from Wyoming will be playing for the Bills.
Though he is not considered one of the best players in the league, his play has more often than not produced positive results for the Bills. The 23-year-old said that to him, this will just be another football game but even with that, he’s doing his best to stay fit for the faceoff. They will not be trying anything different, instead, they will be executing what have they have learned over the years.
The Texans will also have a big boost to their defense, as J.J Watt will be back after missing two months due to a pectoral injury. Though it is not clear how much of an added advantage he will be to the team that has adequate leadership, it is definite that he will be adding to the defense of the team. Texans coach told the media that his team has really been focused on everyone trying to step up and do what is best for the team.
According to one news post released by a renowned working for the casino.org, The Patriots have not played in the postseason since 2009. In the decade since then, the team has been losing to their opponents in the first round. To top it all, they have lost three of their last five games, something that has the fans wondering whether this is the end of the team. Well, however, to try and up their game, they are collecting some backup and the 42-year-old Tom Brady will be playing for them, this is according to confirmed sources.
He is unlikely to be affected by the talk going around town as he has had more wins in the playoffs than all other starting quarterbacks combined. He is in the final year of his contract. He told reporters that none of those things is on his mind and that he will do his best as he has always done.
Since Ryan Tannehill joined the Titans in week 7, the team has boasted of the league’s strongest offense. Patriot’s coach Bill Belichick said to the media that Tannehill has been a good player throughout his career. He throws the ball accurately and makes great decisions while in the field. It seems it will be a tough match between the Titans and the Patriots.
