NSS AFC Wild Card: Bills @ Texans, The Nonsense is Wild!!

NSS AFC Wild Card: Bills @ Texans, The Nonsense is Wild!!

                The NFL playoffs are officially here , and since Jason Garrett got fired so there are officially no distractors.  The AFC Wild Card will kick off with the Bills @ Texans and the Titans @ Patriots on Saturday. 

Bills (10-6) vs Texans (10-6)

                It must be weird for the Texans to be in the playoffs with a better offense than their defense.  And the same thing can be said about the Bills, must be weird being in the playoffs.  Here we are, Josh Allen vs Deshaun Watson.

                The Texans came into the season with the goal of protecting Watson and they have done just that.  Watson was only sacked 44 times this season, that’s 18 less sacks for the analytics and the number guys.  Watson got the Texans back to the Wild Card just like last year hoping for a different result.  Watson matched his last year total of 26 touchdowns in 15 games, so a fresh Watson should be showing up for the Texans.

                The Texans X factor are the health and performance from JJ Watt and Will Fuller V who are both set to return.  DeAndre Hopkins will still be Watson’s number 1 option, but the Texans will need all their options available against the Bills number 3 defense in the regular season.  If Watt shows up without having lose a step after missing 8 games, the Texans’ defense will fully overwhelmed Allen in his 1st playoff appearance.

                The Bills turned it around from 6-10 to 10-6 this season leaning heavily on a grade A defense and a solid running game.  Josh Allen year 2 has drawn out success but also just as many questions with his 20 Touchdowns 9 interceptions under the center.  Against the right matchup and game plan Allen will be at his best, any diversion could put the Bills in a tough spot.

                Allen and a successful run game from Frank Gore and Devin Singletary will be key for the Bills.  Allen, Gore and Singletary combined for 1,884 rushing yards out of the Bills total 2,054.  The Bills balance offense must starts with the run game and then spread out, especially knowing that JJ Watt will be on the other side.  The Bills defense will show up, Allen will have to show he can do the rest.

Pick – Texans.

At the end of the day, Allen is on year 2 and this is 1st playoff game.  While Allen may not deserve some of the shade by the fans some of his performance due raised a number of questions.

Watson is playing on his 2nd playoff game, on a season where he took less hits and also took an extra week of rest to prep for this game. On top of all that, Watson and the Texans are playing at home.

NSS NFL Dec. 21st Saturday Matchups!! Preview & Picks!!

Texans @ Buccaneers:

                Deshaun Watson and the Texans path to the playoffs is not set fully set in stone and there is still a small window for the Titans to get in.  not to bring up bad times/ weeks for the Texans but whatever happen against the Broncos can’t happen again.  The true focus for the Texans is actually weeks 17 when they host the Titans. 

                How crazy is that Jameis Winston has 30 Touchdowns, 4,573 yards and 24 interceptions.  Is like he is feeding both the offense and the defense every game.  The defense for the Buccaneers have been excellent, just imagine their mentality every time Winston does something good, they may just be prepping for him to do something bad just as well.  Winston could be the NFL’s most complicated case.

                Texans need the win against a Buccaneers’ team on a 4-game winning streak working on a last-minute playoff run.

Nonsense Stats

DeAndre Hopkins

  • At 99 Receptions, 2nd in the NFL
  • One more receptions Means
    • Consecutive seasons with 100+ receptions
    • 3rd consecutive season with 1,000+ Receiving yards
  • Only 3 Touchdowns away from having 3 consecutive seasons with 10+ receiving touchdowns.

Pick: Texans. 

Bills @ Patriots

                This game seems to be easily disregarded since both teams are already playoff bound, but it shouldn’t be that way.  The Patriots (at the moment) have the higher seed but it if the Bills can pull off the win, just imagine the possibilities.  The Bills have proven to have a top defense that should not be taking lightly.  While on the other side every week there is more and more questions regarding Tom Brady and the Patriots’ offense.

                Patriots won by less than a touchdown during their 1st meeting and there was not a passing touchdown for neither team.  Brady threw 1 interception, while Allen threw 3 interceptions that game, this game paints the picture of a defensive game.  No matter how good the defenses both Brady and Allen will be familiar with schemes and game plans given the offense the advantage, in theory.

This either will be the best or the worse game played this week.

Pick: Bills

Rams @ 49ers

                The Rams are pretty much out of the playoffs because seriously there is just too much that has to happen for them to sneak in.  On the other side the 49ers need to focus on next weeks game vs the Seahawks, who is one of their 3 losses.

Pick: 49ers by a lot.
