NFL Week 9 picks 2012

Mario Williams’ Houston homecoming comes at a time when the Bills could desperately use a good game from their defensive line — and a win.

Houston’s Arian Foster rushes for the third-most yards per game and looks to prey on his ex-teammate Williams and the rest of the league’s worst run defense, which gives up 6.0 yards per carry.

Even on their losing spree, the Bills are still just 1 1/2 games out of first place in the division. A win over the 6-1 Texans would go a long way in the standings … I just don’t see it.
