The Houston Texans are the lone team in AFC South without a win this season.

When the Houston Texans are looking at the NFL standings, or even the standings of the AFC South, they have to cringe a little because they are 0-3 and have a lot of work ahead of them between now and their Week 4 game.

Though the Houston Texans (0-3) will host the Minnesota Vikings (0-3) in their next game, looking back at the 28-21 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, they must know things could get worse before they get better if the offense can’t figure out a way to stay on the field longer. The Texans are next to last in the NFL in average time of possession for a game at 24:30, and Week 4 opponent Minnesota is last at 22:55.

As stated in previous articles, the Texans offense is predictable, not well-managed and just doesn’t stay on the field long because of those two issues. Sometimes it is the players who are to blame, sometimes it is the reads taken by Deshaun Watson, and sometimes it is the play calling itself.

Granted, the Houston Texans have faced some tough competition this season with the Kansas City Chiefs and Steelers both being 3-0 overall, and the Ravens are 2-1 only because they faced the Chiefs on Monday Night Football.

If the Texans don’t flip the switch, turn the corner or whatever cliché is needed for this week, they are going to continue their ride with one of the worst records in the entire NFL.
