In Tuesday’s NFL power rankings, the Houston Texans have dropped two spots from last week.

The Texans are currently No. 15 in the ESPN rankings, as they dropped to a 2-2 overall record this season following their defeat to the Seattle Seahawks in overtime, Sunday.

In the CBS Sports Power Rankings by Pete Prisco, the Texans were also the 15th ranked team. had the Texans at 14th overall.

ESPN said about the Texans in their rankings:

“Both of Matt Schaub’s interceptions came on third down Sunday, including the crucial Richard Sherman pick-six. Sunday was Schaub’s first career game with multiple third-down interceptions.”

My thoughts are after the past two weeks, the Texans deserve the ranking and overall record they have. The Texans are lucky they aren’t 0-4 overall after the way they played the first two games.

The offense looked improved at times in the game Sunday, but again, mistakes cost the Texans.

The defense has continued to carry the Texans, though at times this year their play has not been the best effort, either. Overall, though, the defensive product the Texans have under defensive coordinator Wade Phillips is one of the best in the NFL.

What are your thoughts on the rankings the Texans have had given to them this week?
