The Houston Texans will be on the road to take on the Washington Redskins, and they’ll need some solid performances to gain their seventh straight win in Week 11.
Both the Houston Texans and the Washington Redskins will bring their 6-3 overall records to their Week 11 game on Sunday, as the two teams face each other with more than just their winning records on the line.
The Texans currently have a six-game winning streak on their side, and more importantly, they have a one-game lead over the Tennessee Titans in the AFC South going into Sunday. A win will keep the Texans ahead of the Titans no matter the outcome of the Titans game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Houston is also coming off a bye week where their players have had plenty of opportunity to not only prepare for their road game against the Redskins, but they’ve even had time to get healthy as minor injuries and prolonged injuries were beginning to affect some players in the Texans’ roster.
Speaking of players on the Texans’ roster, there will be some players who will be must-watch type of players on Sunday, which includes players on both the offensive and defensive side of the ball.
That’s said for the simple fact in their six-game winning streak the Texans have needed big-time plays from both units of their roster to move up to first place.
Some players who will need big games, but not on the upcoming list will be the Texans offense line. That’s said because the Texans will be taking on a Redskins team that has 25 sacks to their credit this season, and if there is one thing the offensive line of the Texans have struggled with this season it is allowing sacks.
There are other aspects of the Texans roster that will include players to watch which won’t be singled out on the upcoming list. The following three players will be the most important must-watch players for Week 11 in the game at the Redskins, as the Texans look to move to their seventh consecutive win of the season.
