The Houston Texans have a unique opportunity to turn the tide. Using the L.A. Rams as a blueprint, here’s three reasons why the should go all-in in 2019.

Just like the Houston Texans did this postseason, the Los Angeles Rams lost their first game of the playoffs last year at home against the Atlanta Falcons. It was a heart breaker but the front office knew that they had something special brewing.

It was Jared Goff‘s first-ever postseason start and he appeared to be nervous just like Deshaun Watson was against the Indianapolis Colts. Although Goff had some evidence of stage fright, the Rams knew that they had the franchise quarterback on a rookie deal and that’s all that matters.

The Rams saw the chance to win a Super Bowl last off season and they did everything possible to make the dream become a reality.


Many skeptics thought they were crazy for throwing in all their chips but their strategy turned out to be successful. Last off season, they made splash-after-splash as they acquired many big name free agents such as: Ndamukong Suh, Marcus Peters, Aqib Talib and Brandin Cooks. All of those guys have been total game-changers on the Rams’ current Super Bowl run.

What should the Houston Texans do?  Let’s examine further.
