I really like where the Texans are ranked, because they’ve earned this ranking, after being at the bottom of the list last season.

The Texans’ defense seems to be coming to life under Romeo Crennel, and J.J. Watt is playing some of the best football of any player in the NFL.

As for the rest of the AFC South, the Colts are ranked 11th, followed by the Tennessee Titans at 30th and the Jacksonville Jaguars at 31st.

The Cincinnati Bengals, who are 4-0 overall, are the No. 1 ranked team.
