Gary Kubiak has been at the helm in Houston long enugh to coach seven seasons of preseason games. The fact that his QB Matt Schaub went down with a season-changing injury during the season last year is going to be the caution flag here. THe Texans must go into the season healthy. While Kubiak has amassed a 13-8 mak in week's 1-3 of the preseason, he is 2-4 in week four. Last year against these same Vikings, he showed nothing as Schaub did not even take a snap. His Texans lost 28-0 in what was a completely non-competitive game. The Vikings have allowed a total of 87 points in their last seven NFL preseason games, and facing what will be an empty Houston offense, I like them to win this one. The Vikings have gone 20-9 ATS in their last 29 week four exhibition games. Play on Minnesota.
