Texans Win Tough One in New York
The Houston Texans saw their nine-game winning streak end at the hands of the Indianapolis Colts last week, so surely they would blow past the New York Jets, right? … Right? Well Sam Darnold and the Jets gave the Texans everything they could handle on Saturday — oh yeah, we have Saturday football now — but the Texans had Deshaun Watson and DeAndre Hopkins to counter. The Texans are going to win the AFC South this week, and with a comeback win on Saturday, they now hold the No. 2 seed in the AFC.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: this is exactly what the team was shaping up to be last year before Watson went down. Now relatively healthy, the Texans are a team not to be taken lightly. Even if they’ll enter the postseason young and inexperienced, a few big plays on both offense and defense could take them to the Super Bowl. They’re good.
