Right now it looks like the Houston Texans are coming out of the AFC South. Somehow they were able to battle back and beat the Indianapolis Colts 20-17. In the beginning of the game it looked like Indianapolis was going to win because Frank Reich had a great game plan.
But the Texans had better athletes and eventually that was why they were able to prevail. DeAndre Hopkins was nothing short of spectacular with a number of big time catches. There was one reception where Hopkins had to toe tap his feet in bounds before running out of field. Then Hopkins recorded 2 touchdowns including the game winner. Houston also got a solid night from Will Fuller who had 140 receiving yards. It’s obvious that when Hopkins and Fuller are both on the field. The Houston Texans are a much better team. And Deshaun Watson was also very good in the second half of this game. When it was crunch time the Texans kept their foot on the gas and it’s going to be scary how good this team can be when they improve their offensive line. They took a step in the right direction by trading for Laremy Tunsil and drafting Tytus Howard. With a couple more free agents upfront then the Texans will be really dangerous. Now they have to prove they’re more than just a one-and-done team because just getting to the playoffs isn’t enough for them. We need to see some magic because the Texans went all-in with some of the moves they’ve made.
