This will be the third time in a little more than a date-book year that they will play against each other with the Chiefs having won the last two, 27-20 in week one of last season. Afterward 30-0 in the AFC Wild Card playoff back in January.

Then Osweiler was marked to a $70 million contract after he demonstrated lots of guarantee a season prior. In the wake of assuming control for a sidelined Peyton Manning in Denver halfway through the season.
Some doubted giving such a high amount of cash to a dubious quarterback. However the Texans likely acknowledged they weren’t running anyplace with Brian Hoyer driving the way. No rolling the bones on Osweiler, who falls between Matt Cassel and Matt Flynn as far as the late quarterbacks without much experience.
The Texans likewise attempted to rejuvenate the offense through the draft in April, taking WR, Will Fuller in the first round, Nick Martin the second, WR Braxton Miller the third and running back Tyler Ervin in the fourth.
Fuller had an immediate effect in week one. Starting behind Deandre Hopkins in the WR2 spot and completing the game with 5 catches for 107 yards and a touchdown. His day could have been considerably more profitable had he not dropped the ball for what might have been an 83-yard touchdown.

Drops were a profoundly steady issue for Fuller when he played at Notre Dame, and he should cure his attacks of stone hands rapidly if he needs to secure a beginning part all through the season.
Fuller was by all account not the only new face to make a quality early introduction. As both Osweiler and Miller had beneficial games in their teams 23-14 win over the Bears. Osweiler recuperated rapidly from tossing a block attempt on the Texans first drive, finishing 22 of 35 good for for 231 yards and 2 touchdowns.

With Jamaal Charles keeping on missing time while recouping from ACL surgery. Kansas City depended on his reinforcement Spencer Ware to lead the way, and he remunerated them. With the best round of his career, hurrying 11 times for 70 yards and a touchdown. Driving the team in catches. Pulling in seven catches for 129 yards through the air.
While Ware missed practice on Wednesday with a sprained toe, as indicated by Chiefs head mentor Andy Reid said he is expected to play on Sunday.
Gratefully it is the regular season, so we can actually place confidence in what Andy Reid is starting as the head coach. In late history, Reid as has gone only 1-5 in his last six postseason games.
In 2013 his group lost to the Indianapolis Colts 45-44, securing the silver decoration for the second greatest blown lead in playoff history as they were once up 38-10
This happened again a year ago, when the Chiefs lost in the postseason to the Patriots 27-20 in a diversion they were in full control of until halfway through the final quarter before Reid got struck inept once more. Neglecting the possibility of timeouts. Which he always did in Philly.
With that annihilation, the mustachioed masochist confirmed his legitimate case to the important position as the most exceedingly awful postseason mentor since Marty Schottenheimer resigned in 2006.
