After finishing the 2018 regular season with an 11-5 record, the Houston Texans seemed destined to maneuver their way through the playoff picture and wind up as an underdog to win the Super Bowl. The team finished the 2018 season losing to the Indianapolis Colts 21-7 in front of their home crowd in NRG Stadium on January 5th in the wild card round. Not only did the team lose in the first round of the playoffs, but star quarterback, Deshaun Watson was also sacked an insurmountable 62 times in 2018, fifth-most in NFL history. Most Texans fans knew that this wasn’t going to be their year, and were already looking forward to the off-season where they would potentially add talent, and enter the 2019 season with high hopes. Little did they know, the team would undergo a massive reconstruction during the off-season and early weeks of the 2019 season.
