The Houston Texans and Atlanta Falcons are both looking to get back to where they believe they belong.

In 2012, the two teams combined for 25 wins and won their divisions, but then both fell flat on their face for a combined six wins the following season. The two teams and many of their fans still believe that both squads are closer to their 2012 level than 2013, but they will need to prove that on the field.

Preseason games mean little most of the time, but this game in particular should give us a good indication as to which team is more likely to have a big bounce-back season.
