Houston has had a roller-coaster season, to say the least.
After a 30-28 nail-biter in their season-opening loss to the New Orleans Saints, the Texans finished the season (10-6) by winning two out of every three games.
Despite winning the AFC South title, this team relies heavily on the play of quarterback Deshaun Watson.

Watson plays behind a struggling offensive line and can’t always make plays outside the pocket when he needs to.
Defensively, the Texans welcome back defensive lineman J.J. Watt as Houston removed him from injured reserve at the conclusion of Week 17.
Watt should help the defense create pressure on their first opponent in the AFC Wild Card Playoff this Saturday at 3:35 p.m., the Buffalo Bills.
The Bills possess the third-best defense in the league, but also the eighth-worst offense, with quarterback Josh Allen lining up behind center and acting like another running back at times.
The Texans have not won a playoff game since the 2016 season, when they knocked off the Oakland Raiders at home in Houston 27-14.
It’d be difficult for this team to make a deep postseason run, and another early playoff exit seems imminent for head coach Bill O’Brien and his players.
