2010 Week 6 fantasy football preview with projections: Chiefs at Texans

The Chiefs have lost 12 or more games in each of the last three years. They could end that string with a victory in Week 6.

You could say the Texans stand in their way, but that defense hasn’t stood in the way of much so far this season.

The upstart Chiefs are projected to keep rolling, 23.8-18.9.

Matchups

The Texans defense has allowed at least 24 points in every game so far this season. They’ve allowed two 400-yard passing games and have given up at least 101 yards rushing in each of the last three games.

That’s so bad Matt Cassel might actually have a good game.

The Texans and Matt Schaub might finally get the aerial assault back on track. The Chiefs have allowed at least 229 yards passing in each game so far this season. Kansas City did have a 5-sack game in Week 3, showing they can take advantage of an opportunity. The Texans have provided plenty of opportunities for opposing sackers this season.
