The Detroit Lions will try to take their three-game winning streak on the road this week against the Houston Texans. The Lions’ sole road victory this year came against the Texans’ division rival: the Indianapolis Colts.

The staff at Pride Of Detroit here mostly believes the Lions will win their fourth straight in Houston, though there isn’t quite as much consensus as usual. Eight of the 11 staffers are picking the Lions with just myself, Kyle Yost and Chris Lemieux picking the Texans to remain undefeated at home.

Here’s a look at the specific score predictions:

Joseph Buszek (5-2): 38-30 Lions
Brian Packey (5-2): 27-21 Lions
Alex Reno (4-3): 26-13 Lions
Justin Simon (4-3): 31-28 Lions
Kyle Yost (4-3): 24-21 Texans
Ryan Mathews (4-3): 28-23 Lions
Andrew Kato (4-3): 31-27 Lions
Mike Payton (4-3): Lions win
Chris Lemieux (3-4): 9-2 Texans
Jeremy Reisman (3-4): 23-21 Texans
Kent Lee Platte (2-4): 31-17 Lions
