8 NFL teams ready to break into the playoffs in 2018 (#6)

6. Houston Texans (2017 Record: 4-12)


Key Additions: S Tyrann Mathieu, S Justin Reid, LB Duke Ejiofor

The Texans were one of the most exciting teams to watch in the beginning of this season. With Deshaun Watson at the helm, this team was a serious surprise and played very well. When Watson went down, so did Houston’s playoff chances. Oh, and it didn’t help that Houston also lost some key pieces on Defense. The Texans playoff chances in 2018 are not based on their additions this offseason, but rather the players they are returning from IR. Watson, JJ Watt, Jadeveon Clowney, and Whitney Mercilus all missed significant time last year. They are all on track to return to full strength in 2018. Oh, and adding Tyrann Mathieu surely will pay dividends for one of 2017’s worst pass defenses. By returning the old, along with blending in the new, the Texans can seriously compete for a playoff spot.
