Browns vs Texans Preview

The NFL season has been marred by a plague of injured starting quarterbacks, and this has had a significant impact on the playoff picture. The absence of key players has put limitations on otherwise talented teams and has led to some less than stellar football performances.

This trend is likely to continue on Sunday when the Houston Texans (8-6) host the Cleveland Browns (9-5). While it may not live up to the storylines expected, the game holds significant playoff implications. The Texans, led by veteran quarterback Case Keenum, will be striving to keep their playoff hopes alive. Keenum's performance in the previous game against the Tennessee Titans was commendable, but the Texans will need to step up their game to secure a win against the Browns.

On the other hand, the Browns, with backup quarterback Joe Flacco, present a formidable challenge. Their defense ranks first in expected points added per play and success rate, posing a tough test for the Texans. It will be crucial for Houston to challenge Cleveland downfield and create opportunities for their offense to succeed.

The Browns, on the other hand, will rely on Flacco to lead their offense. With Deshaun Watson's absence and the team's quarterback struggles, the game is expected to be a close one. Both teams will need to put in a full-team effort to secure a win and keep their playoff hopes alive.

As the NFL continues to grapple with the impact of injured quarterbacks, it's clear that every game holds significant playoff implications. The clash between the Texans and the Browns is a testament to this, highlighting the challenges and uncertainties that teams face as they strive to secure a spot in the playoffs.
