The one positive for the Houston Texans with the official FanSided NFL Power Rankings for Week 13 is they aren’t the worst team on the list. The negative is they are only better than two other teams in the entire league, those being the Jaguars and Lions.

After 12 weeks of football and 11 games for Houston they are 2-9 overall. They are still mostly struggling in games, especially after losing to the New York Jets by a 21-14 score, and that was only one week after the Texans upset the Tennessee Titans on the road.

Houston is a confusing team because they will play their best in the first half of games, holding leads, then in the second half they look like they aren’t even an NFL team after being held to 21 points in the third quarter this season in the 11 games they’ve played.

Currently in the NFL Power Rankings for FanSided the Texans are 30th overall with Matt Verderame of FanSided writing the following about the Texans following their loss to the Jets:

"“You lose at home to the Jets, you became a candidate for contraction.”"

One can’t argue that thought by Verderame because right now this current rebuild is tough to watch. It is especially tough seeing them have a huge win over the Titans in Week 11 then showing up at home to lose to the Jets in Week 12, which is unacceptable.

Texans need to play much better in Week 13 vs. Colts

With there being only six games left this regular season the only thing Texans fans can hope for is finding out which players actually want to be on the roster as they’ll play hard and with pride on a two-loss team.

With a tough game ahead in Week 13 for Houston as they take on the Indianapolis Colts at NRG Stadium it will be of great importance the Texans not only play well in the first half, but much better in the second half.

Texans are a terrible second half team in 2021. dark. Next

A 10th loss this season could drop Houston even further down in the power rankings next week, which is something none of us want to see.
