Tony’s Take: Where Do the Texans Go From Here?


After watching the Houston Texans completely dismantle and dominate the Tampa Bay Buccaneers I was convinced not only would the Texans walk away with the AFC South, but that they might be the best team in the AFC. Now with the possible season-ending foot injury to Matt Schaub, does the door open for the Tennessee Titans to contend for the AFC South?  I don’t think so.

The Texans are still the most complete team in the AFC South with Matt Schaub out and Matt Leinart in at the QB.  With the top-rated defense and the best running game in the NFL, I still believe the AFC South is the Texans’ to lose. They do not depend on their passing game to win games. Proof of this is when they lost Andre Johnson earlier this year for five games and they didn’t miss a beat.

While the Titans are better than anyone thought they would be this year and with Chris Johnson coming off his best game of the season, they still are a couple games behind the Texans. Their best chance of making the playoffs is going to be via the wildcard.
