1.) Houston Texans

The NFL world should be tuned in for this exciting matchup between the Bills and Texans. C.J. Stroud was a dynamic rookie quarterback last year and helped lead the Texans to the playoffs and even defeated the Cleveland Browns.

The Texans have turned around the franchise in a short time with Stroud and head coach DeMeco Ryans. This past offseason, the Texans’ front office attacked the offseason by signing Danielle Hunter from the Minnesota Vikings, as well as trading for running back Joe Mixon from the Cincinnati Bengals.

Then in a shocking trade, the Texans traded for former Bills’ star wide receiver Stefon Diggs and trade compensation for a future second round pick. Houston loaded up this offseason and will be looking to compete in the very competitive AFC. When these two meet, it will be interesting to see how Diggs performs against his old team and how Allen performs without Diggs for the first time without Diggs to throw the ball to. 

At the end of the day, Houston on paper is a better football team. The Bills will have to find a way to slow down Stroud and keep Diggs from lighting up the scoreboard.
