Two undefeated teams will matchup in Houston as the Texans will host the Vikings in Week 4 of the NFL season. The Texans are coming off a tough loss against the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Vikings are suffered an even tougher loss to the Titans.
Minnesota was in control of their last outing against Tennessee up until the end of the third quarter. Minnesota held a 24-12 lead with 3:55 seconds to go in the third, but then Titans scored two touchdowns in to take the lead heading into the fourth. Tenessee ended up winning with a last-second field goal by Stephen Gostkowski 31-30 to send the Vikings to a 0-3 start.
Mike Zimmer may have found something with his offense in rookie wide receiver Justin Jefferson. Jefferson was the last receiver taken in the first round of the draft but has been the most productive out of the five first-rounders. Jefferson put up 175 receiving yards and one touchdown in the last game torching the Titans secondary. He looks like he may be able to pick up the slack Stefon Diggs left to Adam Thielen in the offseason.
Defensively, the Viking took a big loss over the last week with the news that LB Anthony Barr would be out for the year with an injury. Barr was a part of the front seven that caused havoc for opposing offenses in 2019. He was one of the top tacklers on the team and had 79 tackles in 14 games.
The Texans came out swinging against the Steelers and put up 21 first-half points. The problem for them was that they did not score another point in the second half after having the lead heading into halftime.
Deshaun Watson has struggled to find any open receivers with the absence of Deandre Hopkins. People are saying that Hopkins was an integral part of the offense and that’s why Houston can’t seem to find a win in the early season.
Watson has completed 64 of 95 passes on the season for 792 yards to go with his four touchdowns and three interceptions. He also has run one on the season.
Linebacker Zach Cunningham has shown he was well worth his payday this past offseason as he leads the team in tackles with 32 so far on the year. 28 of those 32 tackles are solo and he also leads the team in that category as well.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: Texans – 3.5
I think the Texans get it done here and pick up their first win of the year. Houston has had a very tough schedule to start the year and Deshaun Watson isn’t the type of player to just give up. Houston needs to get it together and against a weak Vikings team, I think they should be able to rebound. Give me the Texans and the points -3.5 to cover against the Vikings this weekend.
