The Houston Texans are heading to the midpoint of the 2019 regular season with a few up and down performances from some of their players.
The Houston Texans are entering the middle of the regular season and currently rank second in the AFC South after a narrow 27-24 win against the Oakland Raiders in Week 8. Texans have the same record at the midpoint of this season compared to last season after starting 0-3 before winning five games straight.
The Texans have played well overall despite disappointing losses to the New Orleans Saints, Carolina Panthers, and the Indianapolis Colts. They haven’t looked overmatch from a talent standpoint, and all three of their losses have been within one touchdown possession. Their defeats up to this point have been to self-inflicted damage, and are issues that can be fixed.
There is a strong possibility Houston has there best football ahead of them and could replicate some of their regular-season success they had last season finishing with their best record under Texans’ head coach Bill O’Brien at 11-5.
The Texans have played well except for a few players that have started on the wrong foot in their first eight games. Texans will need better performances from them for the second half of the season as they are looking to be field a competitive team across the board.
Without further ado, here are four players that have disappointed in the first eight games and need to have a strong finish to the 2019 regular season.
