20. Houston Texans (5-3)
How in the world do the Texans have five wins? Well after defeating the Detroit Lions last Sunday in Houston, they do in fact have a winning record at 5-3. Let’s also remember they play in the AFC South.
They did beat the Lions and then had a nice fourth quarter comeback against the Colts a few weeks ago. Outside of those victories, let’s not forget they beat the Bears as well. However, they have a victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Texans also have battled some injury issues. That’s nothing new to them though. Their biggest weapon on offense, deep threat receiver Will Fuller, has been questionable for most of the past month. After a nice September, he’s all but disappeared in October.
There is plenty of football left but five of their last eight games are on the road. They head east to Florida to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars on November 13th after a bye this week.
