The Houston Texans are taking on the Cleveland Browns in Week 13 and the following five players could have a big impact on the final outcome.
Looking for their ninth consecutive win of the season, the Houston Texans are really on a hot-streak as they not only have the longest current winning streak in all of the NFL with eight-straight wins, but they have the longest winning streak in franchise history as well.
For the Houston Texans to gain their ninth consecutive win, which would also be their ninth win overall this season, they must host and face the Cleveland Browns who have been playing some inspiring football as of late.

The Browns have went through a head coaching change this season as they let go Hue Jackson earlier in the year, and now they have Gregg Williams as their interim head coach. Cleveland enters this Week 13 game with a 4-6-1 record, and they have won their past two games, most recently defeating the Cincinnati Bengals.
Houston is coming off a win against the Tennessee Titans on Monday Night Football which put the Titans three games behind the Texans in the AFC South standings. In second place in the division are the Indianapolis Colts who are 6-5 overall, but have won their past five games.
This game is very important for the Texans, especially if the Texans gain a win, and the Colts lose their game against the Jacksonville Jaguars. If that happens the Texans would be in the driver’s seat in the AFC South with a month to go in the regular season.
That said, there is still a lot of work ahead for the Texans, and that continues Sunday as here are five must-watch players for Week 13.
