Alex Smith could be in for rough time on Sunday when his Kansas City Chiefs take on the Houston Texans. The Texans D/ST ranked 4th overall in 2014 in standard ESPN leagues without 2014 No. 1 overall pick Jadeveon Clowney. Clowney is healthy now and looking to help fellow defensive lineman J.J. Watt out.

Although Smith is the king of protecting the football, Houston intercepted 20 passes in 2014, good enough for 3rd in the NFL. The Texans defensive unit is legit and Smith could be held in check for the majority of this week one game.
