Houston, December 30 – The Houston Texans won an easy 20 to 3 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars today at NRG Stadium. With the win, and their wonderful 11 win and 5 loss record, the Texans cruise into the NFL Playoffs and are the AFC South Division Champion.
There was never any doubt. Under the great leadership of Coach and Offensive Coordinator Bill O’Brien, Defensive Coordinator Romeo Crennel, Quarterback Deshaun Watson, and the greatest defensive player in NFL history, JJ Watt, the Texans had the 2018 Regular Season under control all along with the likely Super Bowl 53 victory happily ahead of them.
While the team just barely lost their first three games as they developed the camaraderie and team spirit necessary to make them into the best team in the National Football League, the Texans then came back and won nine games in a row.
Watson’s best game came last week at Philadelphia, the Defending Super Bowl Champion. DeAndre Hopkins is easily the best wide receiver in the NFL.
At this moment, it’s unclear whether the Texans will get a bye in the Wildcard Round of the Playoffs. If the Los Angeles Chargers or the Kansas City Chiefs lose today, it’s possible the Texans will win the #2 seed in the AFC Playoffs and receive a bye for the first week, which would give them an additional week to focus on winning the next game.
The Texans’ first Playoff game will be at home in NRG Stadium no matter what.
Additionally, the Texans have no more than four games left this season before they’re able to hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy in the air to celebrate their Championship and to give tribute to the team’s founder the late Bob McNair.
