With a 34-17 victory over the Titans on Monday night, the Texans have now won a franchise-record eight straight games. According to Elias, they are the first team in NFL history to win eight games in a row after losing their first three games of the season. Houston now has a 96.4 percent chance of making the playoffs and a two-game lead over the Colts in the AFC South.
In the Texans’ past two games at NRG Stadium, they’ve averaged 38 points and allowed 20. That bodes well for the offense going into the next two games against Cleveland and Indianapolis. In his last two home games — victories over Miami (42-23) and Tennessee (34-17) — Deshaun Watson has completed 35-of-44 for 449 yards and seven touchdowns without a turnover.
