4. Nick Chubb goes for 175 yards

After a couple of slow weeks, Nick Chubb took off against the Bucs. It was an impressive outing, especially considering the talent that was lined up on the Tampa Bay defensive line as Chubb sliced through them like a hot knife through butter.

In all, he had 116 yards on the ground and another 16 on one reception. To top things off, he even scored the winning touchdown in overtime.

Chubb is simply a beast when he has the ball in his hands. He has insane vision, is incredibly decisive, and refuses to go down on the first hit — often making something out of nothing.

This weekend, he’s going to face off against the worst run defense in the NFL as the Texans have surrendered 1,855 yards on the ground. Their pass defense isn’t much better, but it appears to be since teams are usually running due to their big lead.

With all that being said, the Texans will still likely be focused on stopping the pass since they know what Deshaun Watson is capable of. Having the secondary backed off — even slightly — is going to be enough for Chubb to have his best game of the season. In this prediction, he does that by topping 175 yards on the ground.
