Houston Texans ranked 15th of all NFL teams in FanSided 250
The Houston Texans are represented on the FanSided 250 for 2020.
In the 2020 version of the FanSided 250 the Houston Texans are ranked in the Top 200 of the sports and entertainment list with the Texans being No. 164 overall.
The 164th overall ranking also has the Texans as the 15th ranked team in all of the NFL, which considering all that has happened with this franchise this season, isn’t such a bad overall ranking or ranking within all of the teams in the NFL.
Some of the stats listed on the FanSided 250 have the fan vote of the Texans at 48.7, the search score of 20.7, and social follows at 5.3 million. Those aren’t bad numbers considering the Texans are 4-8 overall and having one of the worst seasons in franchise history.
Also this season, the Houston Texans have fired their head coach and general manager, they’ve had two players suspended, and the overall product on the field hasn’t been the best to watch. All of the said, the Texans do have some positives with franchise quarterback Deshaun Watson and three-time Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt on the team as the faces of the franchise.
Houston Texans: Deshaun Watson is the face of the franchise
Deshaun Watson is the best player on the Texans and if he wasn’t on the team imagine how poor the offense would be this season. Watt has a great social media presence is great (check out his Twitter page), and he’s also been on a national stage as a game show host with his brothers, and being in sandwich commercials.
On the FanSided 250 page it states the following about the Houston Texans who also have celebrity fans, including one who is an Olympic gold medalist:
"“The Houston Texans have a decent amount of celebrity fans considering how rabid the state is for football. Perhaps none are more noteworthy than Simone Biles, Olympic gymnast and four-time gold medalist.”"
Though the Houston Texans haven’t been the best ran franchise this season, they are still a young franchise overall since they joined the league in 2002. There is room for so much promise with this team, especially with Deshaun Watson as the present and future of the franchise.
In the coming years don’t be surprised if the Houston Texans are ranked even better, but for now they are in a good spot on the FanSided 250 and maybe next season Watson can make this list as an individual player.
