Ed Reed: Texans-Seahawks potential Super Bowl matchup

BY foxsports • September 27, 2013

Ed Reed has only been a member of the Texans for a short time, but he believes he knows his new team well enough to give a bold prediction on the Week 4 game against the Seahawks.

"This is a potential Super Bowl matchup," Reed told ESPN.

Just one week after an embarrassing 30-9 loss to the reigning Super Bowl Champion Ravens, the Texans will host the high-flying Seahawks as a part of a tough three-game stretch against Baltimore, Seattle and San Francisco, but Reed isn't worried about the loss hanging over his team's head.

"We had to make a lot of corrections this week, Monday, which we did to get better," Reed said. "You can't win them all. We know that now."

Both the Seahawks and Texans boast defenses ranked first and second respectively in total defense and passing yards allowed, but does that make Reed extra motivated in just his second game back from injury?

"Of course, of course, but we're not playing against their defense," Reed said. "We're playing against their offense and we've gotta execute our plan to give our team the best opportunity to win on offense and special teams."
