Arizona Cardinals offensive tackle Paris Johnson Jr. (70) during a preseason game against the Denver Broncos at State Farm Stadium in Glendale on Aug. 11, 2023

Johnson is coming off his best game in pass protection. Anderson is questionable to play with a knee injury but it would pit the No. 3 pick in the draft (Anderson) vs. the No. 6 pick (Johnson).

Arizona Cardinals tight end Trey McBride (85) celebrates his first down catch against the Atlanta Falcons at State Farm Stadium.

McBride is coming off a career game with eight catches for 131 yards. He also had a 10-catch, 95-yard game against Baltimore. The Texans will be without linebackers Denzel Perryman (suspension), Henry To’oTo’o (concussion) and Jake Hansen (hand, hamstring).

Rankins is second on the Texans with four sacks. He his not good against the run. Hernandez is a strong run blocker. We don’t know who will start at left guard.

Keeping Kyler Murray clean in the pocket will be important.

Dell and Williams were both third-round picks this year. Dell has three touchdowns in the last two games. Williams looks great so far this season in four games.
