NFL Power Rankings Week 4: Titans in free fall after loss to Jaguars
7. Houston Texans (2-1)
The Texans could be 3-0 if not for a last-second loss to the Saints in Week 1, but that’s history now and Houston has won its last two games.
In a west coast battle against the Chargers, Deshaun Watson and the Texans got off to a slow start and fell behind 17-7 going into the half, but turned up the heat in the second half on both sides of the ball. Houston’s offense scored 20 points in the final two quarters, while the defense surrendered just a field goal in that span.
The biggest play of the game for the Texans came in the fourth quarter when Watson escaped pressure and found Jordan Akins wide open over the middle of the field for a sensational 53-yard touchdown play. LA would answer with a field goal to draw to within one score, but were unable to find the end zone on their last drive to send the game to overtime.
The Texans sit atop the AFC South along with the Colts, who are also now 2-1. Up next for the Texans is a home tilt against the Panthers.
