The Houston Texans are back down in the week 13 NFL power rankings after moving up last week.

It was nice for the Houston Texans to get a win last week against the Arizona Cardinals, but they were once again on the losing end of game after falling to the Baltimore Ravens on Monday night.

Dan Parzych of NFL Spin Zone was likely forecasting a loss for the Texans, since he posted his week 13 NFL power rankings before Monday night’s game. He has Houston falling two spots from 18 to 20.

Now that we know the Texans lost this week, I would move them down from 20 to 22 in this week’s rankings, because I’m not sure they deserve to be ahead of teams like the Cincinnati Bengals and Green Bay Packers.

Here’s what Parzych wrote:

"With a 4-6 record, playoffs seem like an absolute long shot at this point for Houston, and when looking at how stellar Baltimore’s defense has looked as of late, Savage could be in for a rough outing when looking at his history as a starter. As bad as it sounds, another loss by the Texans on Monday night would basically seal the deal for this season being a lost cause for Bill O’Brien’s squad."

Yes the playoffs are a long shot. A 20 percent long shot for the Texans.

All Houston can do right now is play as hard as they can and hope to get as many wins as they can down the final stretch. They’re ultimately playing for pride from here on out.

The Texans’ final stretch of games will not be kind to them. They have to play three divisional road games against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans. Not to mention they also have a date with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Texans would be lucky to win two games the rest of the way.
