In the news:
The Texans entered the season as one of the favorites to represent the AFC in the Super Bowl. They’ve won two of their three games but their performance has hardly generated confidence they can make such a run.
The Texans had to rally to win their first two games against San Diego and Tennessee, and have been bogged down by untimely plays, such as a turnover margin of minus-three and spotty special teams. Houston, though, remains one of the most talented teams in the league, with reigning NFL defensive player of the year, defensive end J.J. Watt, veteran receiver Andre Johnson and the two-headed running-back tandem of Arian Foster and Ben Tate.
