Houston Texans – Lions

KEY STORYLINES

QUICK HITS

– Detroit still has enough talent around quarterback Matthew Stafford to improve this season.

– The Texans are coming off a home loss to the Titans in Week 2 and will look to solidify their position near the top of the AFC South.

GAME-BELLING MATCHUP

Lions return man Jamal Agnew makes his preseason debut and looks to make an impression as the fill-in for Golden Tate, who was signed as a free agent in the offseason. Tate is the only receiver who will play against the Texans.

DETROIT (0-2)

Last week – Traded for wide receiver Nate Burleson, a former Pro Bowler, while signing holdout tackle Riley Reiff

– Had little trouble beating up on the Tennessee Titans for a lopsided score (45-14)

– Will need to slow down Jadeveon Clowney and Whitney Mercilus if they are in Detroit.

HOUSTON (1-1)

Last week – Upended the Titans, holding the Titans without a touchdown until the end of the first half, 36-10

– Should be closer to challenging the Bears in the AFC North this season

– Will look to help rookie QB Deshaun Watson build some momentum, knowing that veterans Brock Osweiler and Tom Savage will share the ball.
