2. Justin Madubuike should continue to dominate against the Houston Texans

The Houston Texans have had issues along their interior offensive line all season. They have shuffled in three different left guards and two different centers this year. So far, they have settled on rookie Juice Scruggs at left guard and center Michael Dieter at center. 

While that has been the case for a few weeks now, these are still two linemen who will be pushed to the limit this week. Dieter spent three seasons, mainly as a backup with the Miami Dolphins, and was not their first choice to start at center. With Scruggs being a rookie, these two have enough questions. 

Now, they get the All-Pro Justin Madubuike, coming in off of a career-high regular season, playing his best football, and looking to earn more money on the open market with a strong postseason. 

When Madubuike is lined up against either Scruggs or Dieter is imperative he wins the reps because Shaq Mason is one of the best in the NFL at right guard. This will be the matchup to watch.
