Deandre Hopkins and JJ Watt had this game circled on the calendar as soon as the schedule was released! The same goes for Matthew Stafford Facing the team that drafted him then traded him after leading them to a Super Bowl a few years ago. The Texans pulled off one of the worst trades in sports history. Not NFL history… Sports history. Deandre Hopkins finished 2019 for the Texans with 104 catches, 1,165 yards, 7 TDs, and ZERO drops. Fast forward to the offseason and the Texans traded him for David Johnson, a 2nd and 4th round pick. The man behind that move, Bill O’Brien, was fired shortly after.

Jared Goff was bitter when he was traded and rightfully so. His record with Sean McVay as Head Coach is 42-20. On the flip side, Goff’s 0-7 without McVay. Goff has shown that he cannot win with McVay and it’s all in the numbers, they don’t lie here. This would be monumental for Goff as they go into LA as 16.5 point underdogs. This has all the makings to be a disastrous game for Goff. Stafford this season is top 5 in pass yards and passer rating. You see what Stafford is capable of with playmakers and one of the best offensive minds in the NFL (McVay).
