The Houston Texans need to stick to some New Year’s resolutions in 2022.

The Houston Texans didn’t have the best 2021, but with January here the franchise needs to make a few New Year’s resolutions and stick with them in 2022.

Houston’s regular season is almost finished, and that might be the best part of all, but the Texans have played their best football of the ’21 season over the past few weeks. The most exciting part has been seeing some improvement in quarterback Davis Mills, and fellow rookie Nico Collins showing the same signs of improvement at times in his progression from the collegiate game to the professional level.

Houston Texans general manager Nick Caserio also deserves some praise for his first year as the Texans’ GM for all of the roster changes, he’s made, but there is still a lot of work ahead for the first-year general manager of the franchise.

Now, how about some resolutions for the Texans as ’22 is here and the ’21 season nears completion? Next are 4 New Year’s Resolutions for the franchise to follow for success.

4. Be a better team in the second half

The Houston Texans have had so many issues in the second half of games this season, especially in the third quarter. The Texans must become a better team in second half of games at a more consistent level in ’22, because if they are unable to do so, it will be a lot more of the same when the Texans fail to have a winning season.

This season the Texans have scored 24 points in the third quarter of games this season (through Week 16), and in the fourth quarter they’ve scored 72 points with 24 of those points coming in Week 16 against the Chargers, and 22 points in the fourth against the Los Angeles Rams, meaning 46 of their 72 fourth-quarter points came against teams that call Los Angeles home.

It is simple for the Texans; a big New Year’s resolution must be becoming a better team at making halftime adjustments, allowing them to achieve much more success in the second half.
