Chiefs safety Tyrann Mathieu believes Texans coach Bill O’Brien will use mind games against him
The Kansas City Chiefs are coming off of a disappointing loss to the Indianapolis Colts, and things don’t get much easier in week 6. The Houston Texans will come to town, fresh off of a dominant victory against the Atlanta Falcons.
Kansas City safety Tyrann Mathieu is particularly familiar with the Texans, as he played in Houston last season. Mathieu had this to say about facing his former head coach, Bill O’Brien.
“I spent a year with them, and I kind of know how this head coach thinks. I’m expecting him to throw at me early on and try to get in my head. So I’m looking forward to it.” he said, according to Chiefs Wire.
I don’t know if Mathieu should be looking forward to it. Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson is one of the best young passers in the NFL, and the Chiefs aren’t exactly known for their great secondary. Watson is coming off of throwing 426 yards and five touchdowns against what is admittedly a porous Falcons secondary. However, The Kansas City defensive backfield hasn’t been much better, though. Stopping Watson will be the first priority for the Chiefs, and their efforts will likely be in vain.
If you want a game with a lot of fantasy football starters, this one is for you. The Chiefs have allowed 28 and 30 points to the Baltimore Ravens and the Detroit Lions, respectively. The Texans have been horrible in pass defense in their own right. Having allowed three passers to exceed 300 yards.
