If the Buffalo Bills are going to stampede into Houston and beat the Texans on the road, they’re going to need to check off a lot of items on a long list of keys to the game.

The Bills sit at 3-4 coming off their bye. Though they’re not out of anything just yet, their journey toward the postseason starts in Week 9 against the AFC’s top team. And it won't be a walk in the park.

It’ll be a matchup of familiar faces, too. Texans defensive coordinator Wade Phillips served as the head coach of the Bills from 1998-2000. Meanwhile, Buffalo defensive end Mario Williams faces his former team after signing a $100 million contract with the Bills in the offseason.

Houston is led by a superior defense and plenty of playmakers on offense. In order to sneak away with a victory, Buffalo needs to play the best football it has all season.

Here are 10 keys to the game for the Bills defeating the Texans.
