The Houston Texans travel to Atlanta and invade the Georgia Dome as they get set to take on the undefeated Atlanta Falcons Sunday afternoon.
The Falcons come in off a come from behind shootout win over the Dallas Cowboys 39-28.
The Texans grabbed their first win of the season as they did just the opposite and won a low scoring, defensive struggle in 19-9 fashion over Tampa Bay.
Kick off is set for 1:00 PM EST.
The Texans finally grabbed their first win of the season, but they still have plenty of problems to deal with.
Houston was knocked around in all aspects of the game in their first two matchups against Kansas City and Carolina, but the defense at least stepped it’s game up in Week 3. Still, the Texans struggles offensively are a major concern.
With RB Arian Foster still sidelined, Alfred Blue stepped up big time in the win.
Blue finished with 139 yards on 31 carries and capped his day off with a 20 yard touchdown run. Blue’s performance on Sunday marked the first time Houston surpassed the 100 yard mark on the ground this season.
QB Ryan Mallet, who replaced Hoyer as the starter, finished with 228 yards on 24 of 39. He threw for a touchdown and an interception as well.
The Atlanta Falcons were somewhat shocked early on as they saw Dallas and Brandon Weeden run up two quick touchdowns. The Falcons may have overlooked the injury plagued Cowboys early, but eventually settled down to rally for a 39-28 win.
The Falcons impressive 3-0 start is the first time they’ve started this way since 2012. Back in 2012 they reached the NFC Championship Game.
Their stellar start is thanks in large part to RB Devonta Freeman.
The RB ran wild on Sunday as he finished with 141 yards on 30 carries to go along with his 3 touchdowns.
QB Matt Ryan also played extremely well as he finished 24 of 36 for 285 yards and 2 touchdowns. He continues to connect with WR Julio Jones who had yet another 100 yard game. He finished with 164 yards and had the game clinching 2 yard TD catch late in the 4th quarter.

Laying less than a touchdown at home with this hot of a team is the way to go here. The Texans offense still isn’t proven enough to keep up with the Ryan-Jones connection.
