Which Houston Texans should the Minnesota Vikings be most worried about?
The Minnesota Vikings head into Week 4 and face another team that is just as down on their luck as they are. The Vikings face the Houston Texans in a battle where one of the teams will finally get their first win of the season unless this contest ends in a tie, which the way the year is going, it is entirely possible.
While the Texans haven’t yet landed in the win column they went toe to toe with the Pittsburgh Steelers and almost pulled off the upset on the road last week. They have been much more competitive this season than Minnesota and match up favorably against the purple and gold.
Houston has made some odd personnel moves after trading away one of the best receivers in the NFL for next to nothing and also trading away an elite pass rusher in Jadeveon Clowney.
The Texans have traded a large portion of their future to acquire players like Laremy Tunsil, Gareon Conley, and Brandin Cooks and it’s unclear if their head coach Bill O’Brien is just trying to win now to secure his job or doesn’t understand how to build a lasting team in the league.
Despite those odd decisions when it comes to their roster, Houston has a number of solid players who could become problems for the Vikings on Sunday. Let’s take a look at the five Texans players that Minnesota should be most concerned about this weekend.
