Joe Golden: Battle of the Lone Star State

Deshaun Watson has an arm and gas in the tank

Chicago NFL pundit Joe Golden gives his views on this weekend’s matches.


Both Dallas and Houston have been somewhat disappointing thus far in 2018 – and both see this game as a chance for redemption.

The Match:

Zeke Elliott is leading the league in rushing (as he did as a rookie) and the Cowboys will attempt to impose their will on the Texans with a ground and pound attack featuring Elliott. Not so fast, my friends. Houston has been stout against the run this year, and Dallas has yet to find a reliable receiver.

There is more good news for the Texans when Houston has the ball. Dallas has been good at rushing quarterbacks who stay in the pocket – but DeShaun Watson’s legs are as dangerous as his arm. Dallas has lost to both of the mobile dual-threat QBs they have faced – Newton and Russell.


All things considered, take the Texans at minus 3 points for the upset.

Give some slight thought to the over – but best bet is Houston for the win.
