Chris' Early NFL Top Play #3
Minnesota Vikings (0-3) at Houston Texans (0-3)

Normally I’m not trying to figure out a battle of 0-3 teams, but this one caught my eye. You have the Houston Texans who were just given a short stick to begin with, having to play the defending champion Chiefs, the Baltimore Ravens (who owned the best record in the NFL last year at 14-2 if you need a refresher), and the resurgent Pittsburgh Steelers who are back to being one of the best in the AFC with Ben Roethlisberger back. The Vikings? Well, the defense couldn’t do jack against the Packers in week one, didn’t show up against the Colts in week 2 and found a way to lose in heartbreaking fashion to the Titans last time out. Kind of like comparing apples to oranges right? Well, I think Deshaun Watson finally gets to loosen up a bit here against a defense for the Vikings that just doesn’t have it going right now and I can see the Texans winning this one by a touchdown. I’ll lay the points with Houston as my premium pick for this game.
