Houston Texans Schedule 2018 Texans Schedule

10-4, 1st AFC South

at PHI

6:00 pm UTC, 12/23

With DeShaun Watson back and looking healthy this gives Houston a chance to compete for the division. The AFC South went to Jacksonville last year, but not having Andrew Luck and Watson in the division for most of the season, it wasn’t fairly difficult to do so. Houston will be in contention if everybody can stay healthy, and that goes for more than just Watson. Houston’s defensive side has been injured badly over the last few seasons. They have a tough stretch of games to open the season facing New England and Tennessee on the road before going to New York to take on the Giants. The Titans should improve this season, and will give much tougher games to their opponents. The same will go for the Colts if Luck can stay healthy, which makes their six divisional games much tougher. The Texans go on the road to face Denver, Washington, New York Jets, and Philadelphia. These will be division changing games for Houston. Philly is likely going to be a loss, but the other three will be ones to be toss-ups. Houston faces Dallas, Miami, Cleveland, and Buffalo, which are must-win games for Houston to be able to afford some losses to their better opponents later down the year. This AFC South division is likely going to be filled with a lot of 8-9 win teams, which makes that Week 17 game against Jacksonville much more intriguing. If Watson does not rebound in the health department, then a lot of this will change.
