2. Houston Texans

Since the Houston Texans have been one of the most difficult teams to figure out in the NFL, it would only make sense to be concerned about their upcoming game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, right?

One week after suffering a shocking loss at home to the Denver Broncos, the Texans bounced back in a strong way by defeating the Tennessee Titans on the road to earn a full-game lead in the AFC South standings.

But with Houston hitting the road to take on a Tampa Bay team that has won five of their last six games, and arguably one of the hottest teams in the NFL heading into Week 16, the Texans better hope they avoid finishing on the losing end.

Playoffs may be out of reach for the Buccaneers, but with Jameis Winston looking to prove he deserves the starting job beyond the 2019 season, the former No. 1 pick will look to continue playing on a high level against the Texans.

Similar to Houston, Winston has also been one of the most difficult players to figure out this season with his inconsistent play, but as long as he ends the year on a high note, this may all Tampa Bay needs to see.
