Houston Texans football is around the corner. How will the 2019 schedule play out? Here’s the prediction of the schedule in four parts. Take a look.

Houston Texans fans, we’re approaching July, which is the first sign that the NFL season is approaching. Training camp and then the preseason become the full headlines with roster cuts and questions about the team and the expectations for the season. Then comes the real deal by September and we’re ready for 16 weeks of hell-bent, emotional up-and-down, fired up football that will either be magical for this season. Or, it will be just another step in making our Super Bowl dream a reality while having to deal with more postseason heartbreak.

This offseason, the franchise has been in the news. But not in the best light through no fault of the players. The whole fiasco with the management and them going from firing Brian Gaine to backing off on getting their top target Nick Caserio has left a bitter taste in our mouths. Obviously, this is a time of uncertainty right now. With Cal McNair and Bill O’Brien in the limelight, the pressure of winning becomes greater as our their seats becoming hotter.

However, in thinking through all this, I realize that at the end of the day, the players are the ones that score the points on the field. So this season, as in the case with last season, will be decided by how well the team plays. I think Deshaun Watson will have a better season, with help from an offensive line that can block for him should we get that help soon. Our receivers should put up strong numbers barring any injuries. Of course, it also depends on if Jadeveon Clowney is still on the team.


Looking at the strength of schedule rankings, the Houston Texans have the fourth toughest schedule. The teams they face went 135-121 last season, which is a 53.1 winning percentage. Only Oakland, Denver, and Jacksonville have tougher schedules. Suffice to say, expectations for the Houston Texans’ season are up in the air. There’s uncertainty with how well the Houston Texans can adjust to another tough schedule. Some predictions have us missing the playoffs while others feel we’ll be in the Wild Card game again.

But I looked at the schedule and using PlayoffPredictors.com, I think we can make the most of it. Some of the games we’ll be in we’ll come down to the last possession while there might be a blowout win or loss in the mix.

Call me crazy for thinking this, but I feel I should give out my early predictions for the 2019 season even if there is uncertainty. The Houston Texans might live up to my predictions and more or they could not fulfill them and I’ll be wrong.

As much as I’m in high spirits on the Astros making another playoff run in spite of the recent slump, I’ve decided to take my chances and predict the Houston Texans’ 2019 record.
