Week 14 NFL Power Rankings

Randall Cobb

19. Houston Texans (LW: 19)

It would likely take a 4-0 run to end the season, but the Houston Texans – with two games against the Jaguars and one against the Colts – actually have a chance to make the playoffs. Sweeping their remaining games would probably put them in better position to win their division than grab a Wild Card berth, but they remain alive in both, regardless. In reality, their inability to sustain a record above .500 will probably spell the end of their season, but with J.J. Watt seemingly doing everything on the football field, the Texans remain a threat – albeit, weak – through season’s end.
