The Houston Texans (6-5) will travel to Buffalo this weekend for the first time since 2009 to take on the Bills (5-6) at Ralph Wilson Stadium. Sunday's kickoff is slated for noon CT.
Houston has won its last four games and remains tied for the AFC South division lead with the Indianapolis Colts. Since Week 8 when the winning streak began, the Texans lead the NFL in points allowed per game (8.8), total net yards allowed per game (250.5) and net passing yards allowed per game (180.5), while ranking second in rushing yards allowed per game (70.0) and tied for third in turnover margin (plus-5).

Last week, the Texans defeated the New Orleans Saints, 24-6. It marked the third time in the past four weeks that the team has held its opponent to only six points. Houston also snapped a 155-game streak in which New Orleans had scored a touchdown, which was the second-longest streak in NFL history. DE J.J. Watt notched 2.0 sacks in the game and became the second-fastest player to reach 70.0 career sacks (Reggie White, 57 games). Watt currently leads the league in sacks (13.5), tackles for loss (23)and quarterback hits (41).
Offensively, QB Brian Hoyer threw for two touchdowns and posted over a 100.0 passer rating for the fifth time this season. TE Ryan Griffin and WR Cecil Shorts III were on the receiving end of those two throws, while RB Alfred Blue added another touchdown on the ground.
Buffalo is coming off of back-to-back losses to the New England Patriots and Kansas City Chiefs but remains in the middle of the crowded AFC playoff picture. In the Bills' last game against the Chiefs, QB Tyrod Taylor threw for three touchdowns and a 106.4 passer rating, while WR Sammy Watkins caught six passes for 158 yards and two scores. Buffalo holds the fifth-ranked rushing offense in the NFL, led by RB LeSean McCoy, who has 680 rushing yards and three touchdowns on the year.
