The Houston Texans started the 2013 season at 2-0, only to lose their next 14 games in a row and finish as the worst team in the NFL. Will things change in 2014?
Jadeveon Clowney was the reward for the Texans disaster last season, and he’s expected to help revamp the defense. The Texans will need a healthy Brian Cushing and a healthy secondary to to reestablish themselves as one of the better defenses in the NFL.
On offense, Matt Schaub is gone and Ryan Fitzpatrick is now under center. The Texans return Andre Johnson and DeAndre Hopkins at receiver, and will use all of Garrett Graham, Ryan Griffin, and C.J. Fiedorowicz as Bill O’Brien takes over the offense. Arian Foster will likely be depended on a lot this season, and they need him for a full 16 games if the Texans want to contend.
I asked the House Of Houston staff for their 2014 Houston Texans predictions. Super Bowl? Last place? Somewhere in the middle?
