Houston Texans: 3 predictions for 2019 before training camp
1. Texans will have double-digit wins
Only once in franchise history — that being the 2011 and 2012 seasons — have the Houston Texans had consecutive double-digit winning seasons, but that will happen again this upcoming season because Houston can be good enough to win at least 10 games in 2019.
Last season, the Texans finished 11-5 overall as they were the champions of the AFC South. This year, the pursuit of winning the division title will be a little tougher as the Indianapolis Colts are a very good team, and the Jacksonville Jaguars should bounce back as well. That said, the Texans are still talented enough to win at least 10 games to gain the back-to-back double-digit winning seasons.
Before the 11 wins last season, the last time the Texans had at least 10 wins in a season was in 2012 when they finished 12-4 overall. The problem with that was the following season when the Texans finished 2-14 overall, tied for their worst season finish in franchise history.
Houston proved many teams wrong last season when they earned 11 wins, and with this offseason, the franchise is seemingly working on some issues that need some improvement. They still have a high talent level on their roster that is good enough to win 10 games.
Will 10 wins be enough to win the division championship again? That is a tough question, but most likely it will take even more than 10 wins to earn the AFC South championship for a second straight season.
