Houston Texans’ Ceiling

 

download.png           The Houston Texans let the deadline pass of signing franchise tag players go by and did not give Jadeveon Clowney a long-term deal according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. QB Deshaun Watson
was sacked 60 times last year. If you’re wanting to take the next step in the post-season, you must keep your quarterback upright. This front seven of Houston with Clowney, Mercilus, JJ
Watt, and others shows they can stop the run, but can they rush the passer? They have a topflight WR in DeAndre Hopkins, a strong RB in Lamar Miller, and a solid defense. However, this AFC
South division is extremely competitive. The Colts, Jags, and Titans are all potential playoff teams with their quarterback situations and defensive units. The Texans have a fairly difficult
schedule having to play out of division matchups with the New Orleans Saints and defending champ New England Patriots. The Texans’ ceiling is high if they keep Deshaun Watson protected and their defense gets some pass rushing on opponents.
