Houston Texans vs Kansas City Chiefs Prediction, Preview Games and History
Texans vs. Chiefs 12/18/22 NFL Prediction
CXSports’ Texans vs. Chiefs NFL prediction: While the Texans have been having one of the worst seasons imaginable, the Chiefs are looking almost unstoppable. That should make picking a winner in the upcoming Texans vs. Chiefs 12/18/22 an easy task. However, it’s still worth taking a closer look.
Texans vs. Chiefs 12/18/22 Preview Games and History
Texans vs. Chiefs 12/18/22 matchups go back to 2003 when the Texans couldn’t capitalize on home advantage and were humbled in a 42-14 defeat.
The Chiefs have kept the edge in the series, with the two sides now having met each other 13 times, with 11 games coming in the regular season and 2 games coming in the postseason. Kansas currently lead the matchup 8-5-0, but the gap isn’t too large to put off Houston aiming to turn the record in their favor sometime soon.
Houston Texans vs Kansas City Chiefs Odds and Statistics
Kansas has scored almost 100 more points in the Texans vs. Chiefs series, leading the total 379 to 281.
The Texans have consistently struggled to earn significant points hauls in the matchup and have rarely scored over thirty when the two sides come up against each other. When they last won the Houston Texans vs Kansas City Chiefs playoff fixture, they edged through with a 31-24 win in 2019.
Home advantage had little correlation to success in games between these two teams, but the Chiefs’ home victories in the last two matchups between the sides show that this pattern may be changing soon. The first of these two was possibly the biggest event these two sides have ever played out as the Chiefs progressed in the AFC Division Playoffs at the Texan’s expense after winning 51-31.
Houston Texans vs Kansas City Chiefs NFL Betting Tips: The Season So Far
These two sides’ performance in the AFC couldn’t be going much differently this season.
The Kansas City Chiefs currently have the joint-highest win percentage in the division, with a record of 9-2 so far. At the moment it looks like the most likely outcome is that they win both Texans vs. Chiefs 12/18/22 and the AFC’s top playoff seed unless something is to go drastically wrong.
From there, anything is possible, with a Super Bowl victory looking like an increasingly achievable dream with every extra win that’s notched up. Patrick Mahomes’ performance at quarterback so far this year puts him in the running for the MVP award, and his form has done wonders to elevate the rest of the team’s performance.
The one risk being run is over-reliance on their star QB, and Mahomes’ attitude has seemingly reflected this at times, with the star player sometimes looking unimpressed with his teammates.
Still the formula seems to be working more than well enough so far and it’s hard to see the Texans stopping them in Texans vs. Chiefs 12/18/22.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, things couldn’t be going much worse for the Texans. For the opening weeks of the season, it looked like Dameon Pierce’s supreme rushing ability might be enough to see Houston achieve some stellar form, but sides worked out pretty quickly that if they can snuff him out then the Texans have little else to offer. His yards rushed per game is decreasingly rapidly as the season progresses.
They have just one victory to their name this season, and that’s not likely to change in Texans vs. Chiefs 12/18/22. In all likelihood, they’ll finish at the bottom of the table come the season’s end.

Texans vs. Chiefs 12/18/22 Prediction
Anything other than Kansas City Chiefs winning this Houston Texans vs Kansas City Chiefs game will be an absolute shock.
Unless the Texans can work out some form of pushing forward that doesn’t rely on Dameon Pierce, then they’re going to struggle to put any points on the board.
CXSports’ prediction is that the Chiefs have done their homework and know stopping Pierce is likely to be enough for them to coast to victory.
