Houston Texans Power Rankings Update Through Thirteen Weeks


Back-to-back weeks where EVERY publication had the Texans last in their power rankings. Can this season go by any slower?!? The average rank of the Texans for these publications this week is 32, whereas last week it was also 32. Here are each major publication’s Texans ranking in their respective power rankings.

Houston is in a total free fall. Ten straight losses, and only the Jets (minus-18) have a worse turnover margin than the Texans (minus-12). Will Houston clean house?

Any folks wondering if the head coach in Houston had lost the locker room got their answer Sunday. The Texans played inspired football, ultimately bested by a Hall of Fame quarterback and one of the most clutch kickers of the past decade.

You’ll hear much talk about Gary Kubiak‘s future over the next few weeks. His fate is far less sealed than you’d imagine.

They’re streaking toward the No. 1 pick, but the Texans are due to get a win here sometime. Their past six losses have come by a grand total of 22 points. So maybe hold off on buying that Teddy Bridgewater jersey, random Texans fan.

It’s looking more and more like they will draft first next spring. Do they take a quarterback?

I’d assume Teddy Bridgewater will be watching their game on Thursday night at Jacksonville with a lot of interest.

It’s unfortunate the Texans came up on the losing end against New England, because they played a good game. It’s a tough thought when you consider the expectations this team had entering the year.

 

What do you think of these rankings? Texans too high on some (HA)? Too low?
