IT DOESN’T MATTER, BRIAN – AFC SOUTH CHAMPIONS AGAIN, BRIAN! “These guys have worked hard, especially the way we started out. It’s a testament to the players in that locker room. They’ve always hung tough, and to go from 0-3, then go 11-2 in this league, pretty tough to do. Give credit to the players.”

THE TEXANS…

  • Won their third AFC South title in the past four seasons and fifth in the last eight seasons (2011, 2012, 2015, 2016)
  • Became the first team to begin a season 0-3 and win a division title since the 1992 San Diego Chargers
  • Earned their 11th win of the season, which is the second-most wins in franchise history and most since 2012 (12)
  • Finished the season 11-5 overall, 6-2 at home, 5-3 on the road and 4-2 overall against the AFC South
  • Improved their record to 8-2 overall and 4-1 at home against the Jaguars under Head Coach Bill O’Brien (2014-18)
  • Allowed the fewest points in a game since shutting out Tennessee in Week 12 of the 2012 season
  • Committed the fewest turnovers (16) in a single season in franchise history and tied for the least amount of interceptions thrown in a single season in franchise history with nine (2011)
  • Forced two turnovers (one fumble recovery and one interception) and had one turnover for a turnover differential of plus-one. The Texans set a single-season franchise record with a plus-13 turnover differential

  • Held the Jaguars to 30 yards rushing on 16 carries (1.9 avg.), which marks a franchise-record fourth-consecutive game the Texans have allowed fewer than 3.0 yards per carry and sixth time overall in 2018, which is a franchise record for the most games limiting the opponent to fewer than 3.0 yards per carry in a single season
  • Gained 342 net yards (134 rushing and 208 passing) and 23 first downs (eight rushing, 13 passing, two by penalty)
