NFL Pro Football 2016 Houston Texans Regular Season Win Odds Preveiws

Share |

The Houston Texans were AFC South champions in the 2015 regular season with a mark of 9-7. They hosted an AFC Wildcard playoff game against Kansas City and were blown out losing by the score of 30-0. They were only one game better in the regular season than the 8-8 Indianapolis Colts who played many of their games without starting quarterback Andrew Luck who sustained a season ending injury. Houston will need to be a lot better in 2016 to repeat with a healthy Andrew Luck at quarterback for the Colts.

The Houston Texans were carried by the third best defense in the NFL a season ago as the team was trying to figure out their quarterback situation. They held opponents to just 100 yards rushing per game along 210 through the air. The Texans will be without a key component to their defense as defensive end J.J. Watt is dealing with a back problem that forced him to miss all of training camp. He is expected to return to the team in late September as he recovers from surgery from a herniated disc. On the offensive side of the football the big news for the team was the signing of quarterback Brock Osweiler away from the Denver Broncos during free agency. He enters his sixth season in the league and served as a backup for Denver during most of the Peyton Manning tenure with the team. With Manning ailing and under-performing it was Osweiler starting a total of seven games in 2015. He completed 61.8% of his throws for 1967 yards with ten touchdowns and six picks. But Peyton Manning was given the starting job back in the playoffs so Osweiler then fled the scene at Denver when the starting job seemed like his to lose in 2016 once the veteran retired. The team needed to improve a running game that has digressed the past few seasons. A good signing by the team was the addition of former Miami Dolphins running back Lamar Miller who rushed for eight touchdowns and 4.5 yards per carry average a season ago. Miller has been a durable back who has played in all 16 games the past three seasons.
