Houston Texans: 3 trades that could lead to playoffs
For the Houston Texans to have a chance to make the playoffs, a trade or three should be made to increase their chances.
The first six weeks of the NFL season have been very indicative of the Houston Texans. They have struggled in two main places as the Texans have major holes on their offensive line and a depleted and porous secondary.
Currently the Texans are 3-3 overall, a big difference after starting the regular season with three straight losses. To the start the season, the Texans lost all three games by seven points or less. Since then, the Texans have won three straight games, all within a one-score window. Houston has seen their offensive line play be dismal, and the secondary hasn’t been up to what they should be, either.

Houston’s defense did come up strong late in the fourth quarter, but parts of the offense and the defense have almost cost the Texans losses with two of the wins going to overtime and this past Sunday taking a strong defensive effort with two late interceptions against a backup quarterback to get the job done.
Again, a lot of the issues for these close outcomes have been because of the secondary and offensive line, and the running backs haven’t been too great either. If the Texans decide to push for the 2018 NFL Playoffs, they will need to address these pressing issues.
Here are three players the Texans should really take a strong look at if they want to stay competitive in the AFC South and have a chance to even make the playoffs in 2018.
