The Houston Texans have reached their bye week and are just over the midway point of their 2018 season ,with varying positions doing well and others not so much.
What a wacky and wild season it has been for the Houston Texans after nine games, and now with the team in their bye week, the Texans are sitting at the top spot of the AFC South, and more importantly, they are playing their best football of the season.
The Texans enter their break with two different types of streaks this season, one being a three-game losing streak after the first three games. That was followed with a six-game winning streak, which they are still looking to add to following the Week 10 bye.
Having a 6-3 overall record, the Texans are in the driver’s seat in their division with the Tennessee Titans being 4-4, while the Jacksonville Jaguars and Indianapolis Colts are each 3-5 on the season.

With that said, there is still a lot of work ahead for the Texans in their final seven games of the season with games against the Washington Redskins (5-3), Titans (4-4), Cleveland Browns (2-6-1), Colts (3-5), New York Jets (3-6), Philadelphia Eagles (4-4) and the Jaguars (3-5). So, going into Week 10, there is just one team on the Texans’ schedule that currently has a winning record in the Redskins, who will be the first opponent the Texans face following the bye week.
As for the individual players of the Texans, some have really stood out for all the right reasons this season, including Deshaun Watson, DeAndre Hopkins and J.J. Watt, while others haven’t been as productive as they should be at this point of the season.
Even with the poor start to the season, the Texans are in a nice spot entering the rest of the season if they are able to keep their momentum. Even more importantly, they need the Big Three of Watson, Hopkins and Watt to stay healthy and remain on the field if they want to be competitive for the rest of the year.
Here is a report card on each position of the Texans at the midway point of the season.
