Houston Texans (1-0) vs. Washington Redskins (1-0)

When: 4:00 p.m. Sunday, CBS

SB Nation Texans: Battle Red Blog

SB Nation Redskins: Hogs Haven

Breakdown: If you had asked me last week, I would have said this game would be among the worst we'll see in the second week of the season. Now? It's one of the best. The Texans are going to come out and try to throw all over the Redskins, whose defense was very impressive against the Cowboys. The Texans may have a better offense than the Cowboys so this game is going to be a good test to see whether the Redskins defense was legit.

Player to Watch: Keep an eye on Donovan McNabb and that Redskins offense. If last week is any indication, they're nowhere near the Texans offense so they'll need to come up with some way to score points and that usually starts with the quarterback.

Line: Texans are three point favorites.

Prediction: This might be the toughest game of the week but with the Redskins at home, fired up crowd after last week, I'll go with the upset and take Washington by a field goal.
