NFL.com and NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport has his thoughts on the game:

Why this game is intriguing: Fresh off wrist surgery, defensive end Mario Williams emerges from the bye ready to face his old team in his old home. Williams, of course, has been limited to 3.5 sacks and 16 tackles in a disappointing debut season with the Buffalo Bills. He returns to Houston with a creaky defense that ranks 31st in yards allowed. Meanwhile, the Houston Texans are doing just fine without Williams, as budding star J.J. Watt leads a well-rounded, pressure-happy group. Houston ranks third in total defense, allowing just 283 yards per game. There is a lot at stake in the actual game, with the Texans still making their case as the NFL's best and the Bills scratching and clawing to show they are wild-card worthy. Yet all eyes will be on Williams, his new wrist and his battles against former teammates. How will the crowd react when he walks onto the field?
