The 2017 season was looking so bright as rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson was setting the league on fire. Then a torn ACL in practice ended his season and the Houston Texans went on to win just one of their last nine games, but with a healthy Watson, the 2018 season had high hopes. However, the season started off very ugly. The Texans started the season 0-3 including with loses to the Tennessee Titans and New York Giants. Facing the Indianapolis Colts in week four, the Texans’ season flipped 180 degrees within one snap.
Monday Night, the Houston Texans wanted to honor their late owner Bob McNair, who died last week at age 81. They did him proudly, becoming the first Team in NFL history to start a season 0-3, before going on an eight-game win streak.
The Houston Texans needed a quarterback because it was their only Achilles heel going into the 2017-2018 season as they knew Brian Hoyer wasn’t going to help them long-term. So in the 2017 NFL Draft the Houston Texans worked out a trade for the No.12 pick with the Cleveland Browns by giving them the pick No.25 and a 2018 1st-rounder so they could select Deshaun Watson, who impressed them by leading the Clemson Tigers to a National Title over Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide, the nation’s No.1 defense. Will Watson lead them to the playoffs?
