The Houston Texans’ 2017 season may have made a turn for the worse rather quickly, with so many injuries, but there are many things everyone can still be thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

With today being a day in which we often reflect on what we’re thankful for, I thought it would be a good idea to talk about why we’re thankful for the Houston Texans.

A franchise quarterback in Deshaun Watson

As unfortunate it is that the Texans have lost rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson for the remainder of the season, everyone can rejoice in knowing that Houston finally have a true franchise quarterback after so many years of searching.

Not only is Watson a great quarterback, but he’s also a great leader on and off the field. Nothing was more impressive then him giving his first NFL paycheck to three women who work at the Texans’ team cafeteria in order to help them rebuild from Hurricane Harvey.

J.J. Watt’s youcaring.com fundraiser

It’s remarkable how Texans’ star J.J. Watt was able to raise over $37 million using a crowdfunding website like youcaring.com, in an effort to help the city of Houston rebuild. He has such a great heart and cares so much about the local community.

Hopefully Watt will be able to get healthy and stay healthy after another injury-shortened season. He deserves it.

Texans still in the playoff hunt

Despite having a losing record, the Texans aren’t out of the playoff hunt just yet. I’m not sure they have enough talent to get into the postseason, but you never know. There is still hope.

Houston has a big game this week against a Tennessee Titans team that is beatable.
