Who will win the NFL Wild Card round: Bills or Texans?

The Bills nearly won the AFC East with the second-best overall defense in the entire league in terms of points against. Meanwhile, the Texans have DeShaun Watson and DeAndre Hopkins, who can torture any opposing defense. Who will advance? 🏈

Offense wins games, but defense wins championships. In a one-and-done format, it is defense that will be the key to survival, and the Bills have a great one.

Buffalo had one of the most dominant defensive units all season, allowing the second-fewest points in 2019—and they had to play the New England Patriots twice! They allowed for the fourth-fewest passing yards and are in the top-10 in stopping the run.

The Texans have a nice offensive unit, but they won't be able to move the ball against the Bills.

The Bills have one of the best defensive teams, but who have they really played? The New England Patriots don't have the same offense they used to, and it's easy to beat up on the Miami Dolphins twice. The Houston Texans are going to smoke the Bills.

Of the 13 opponents the Texans played in 2019, four of them finished with a record above .500. Buffalo played five games against those teams (the New England Patriots twice) and had a 1-4 record. The Bills can't win against good teams, and the Texans, who finished 10-6 this season, have DeShaun Watson and DeAndre Hopkins—two of the best players at their respective positions.

Buffalo can beat up on bad teams all it wants in the regular season, but the Bills will fall against the Texans as they have against every other decent team this year.
