2017 felt like two different seasons in the greater Houston area. There was the seven-game stretch when Deshaun Watson gave Texan fans hope. Memory tells me the Texans must have gone 7-0 when reality is the Texans only won three games in that span.
Then there were the other nine games when the Texans went without a quarterback and finished 1-8.
No doubt about it, a healthy Watson gives the Texans their best chance in years. Watt’s return to form will lift them even higher. But will they roll over the league and sweep through the playoffs?
This is how we see the Houston Texans’ 2018 season unfolding, game-by-game:
Week 1: Texans (0-0) at Patriots (0-0)
Remember last season when the Chiefs ran up the score and utterly embarrassed the Patriots on opening day?
This game will be more like the Patriots’ Week 3 matchup when Deshaun Watson had a big day, but Tom Brady beat him anyway. (Patriots 31-24)
Week 2: Texans (0-1) at Titans (1-0)
Tennessee entertains thoughts of returning to the playoffs in 2018. A nice road win in Miami has them feeling good for their season opener.
Houston spends too much time remembering last week’s loss and not enough time preparing for the motivated Titans. Watson comes out flat and Tennessee holds on for the win. (Titans 23-20)
Week 3: Giants (1-1) at Texans
New York let the emotions of an opening day upset of the Jaguars disappear under the weight of a tough loss in Dallas. They would have preferred to get out of Texas.
Bill O’Brien reminds Watson and the rest of the Texans that they are supposed to win more games than they lose. Watson is back in form and the Giants pay the price. (Texans 27-17)
Week 4: Texans (1-2) at Colts (2-1)
Indianapolis had a couple of good wins before running into the Eagles in Week 3. They hope to get back on track in the friendly confines of Lucas Field.
Houston has other ideas. They like the way they felt after the Giants game. This one is over early. (Texans 28-16)
Week 5: Cowboys (2-2) at Texans (2-2)
Dallas comes into Houston off a big win against Detroit. Dak Prescott had his best game of the season and the defense stopped Matt Stafford’s final drive to seal matters.
Houston is unimpressed. Lamar Miller and D’Onta Foreman take turns running through the Cowboys’ front seven in a solid win. (Texans 21-14)
Week 6: Buffalo (1-4) at Texans (3-2)
Buffalo’s coaching staff is trying to convince us that Buffalo is the best 1-4 football team in history. Their brutal early schedule certainly contributed, but Tyrod Taylor and the Cleveland Browns enter the week with more wins than the Bills.
Houston is willing to treat the Bills like a very good football team. They come out with their best game and take their fourth straight victory. (Texans 24-12)
Week 7: Texans (4-2) at Jaguars (4-2)
Jacksonville feels they should be 6-0 after looking past the Giants on opening day and forgetting to bring their offense to Kansas City.
Houston thinks the Jaguars should be 4-3, and that is where they put them with a good overall effort. Watson is learning that he doesn’t have to carry the offense with Lamar Miller in the backfield. Texan fans are giddy about their first-place standing. (Houston 21-16)
Week 8: Dolphins (3-4) at Texans (5-2)
Miami still considers themselves a playoff contender and they occasionally play like one. This is one of those times Ryan Tannehill looks like a franchise quarterback.
Houston has no doubts that Deshaun Watson is their franchise quarterback. In another well-balanced attack, the Texans hold off the pesky Dolphins for their sixth win in a row. (Texans 27-24)
Week 9: Texans (6-2) at Broncos (4-4)
Case Keenum and Denver have had their ups and downs. John Elway spent a lot of time defending his signing of Keenum before Cousins was locked up. He needed to spend more time addressing other needs.
Denver’s defense is still a strength and they give the Texans all they can handle. It’s a sloppy win for the Texans, but it’s still a win. (Texans 17-14)
Week 10: The Texans are on their bye week.
Week 11: Texans (7-2) at Redskins (2-7)
Speaking of general managers taking heat for their quarterback choices… here come the Washington Redskins. Kirk Cousins is leading the Vikings back to the playoffs, while Alex Smith is still looking for a wide receiver in Washington. A running back would be nice, too.
Houston comes off their bye with all guns blazing. For the first time, they have a 100-yard rusher on the same day Watson throws for 300 yards. Washington doesn’t know what hit them. (Texans 37-17)
Week 12: Titans (3-7) at Texans (8-2)
Once upon a time, the Tennessee Titans dreamed of a playoff race. That was when they were 2-0 and just beat the 0-2 Texans. Hard times followed in Tennessee… and they continue today.
Everything works for the Texans today. Watson wins his third Player of the Week designation. (Texans 31-6)
Week 13: Browns (3-8) at Texans (9-2)
Cleveland came into 2018 with an idea of trying that winning thing they kept hearing about. They started the season with a 3-3 record, but come to Houston on a five-game losing streak. They seem ill-prepared to keep the Texans’ win streak from hitting double digits.
Coach O’Brien pleads with his charges all week not to look past the Browns. The entire staff pleads with the team to bring their best game. Maybe they didn’t listen. Maybe Week 13 just proved to be unlucky. But the Browns make some big plays and stuns the crowd at NRG Stadium. (Browns 27-24)
Week 14: Colts (5-7) at Texans (9-3)
Indianapolis follows up a huge loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars with a visit to the team they just helped Jacksonville catch in the division race.
After last week’s embarrassing loss to the Browns, there is no way the Texans don’t throttle the imperfect Colts, right? Houston’s defense contains Andrew Luck, but the Colts running game goes off. Houston fans are in for another week of nightmares after watching their Texans lose another winnable game. (Colts 27-24)
Week 15: Texans (9-4) at Jets (5-8)
After those two losses, the Texans are happy to get out of town. New York is waiting for them with their own new franchise quarterback, rookie Sam Darnold. In his first game in front of the home crowd, Darnold has a banner day with four touchdowns.
Watson likes nothing more than a good shootout. He is up to the task this week, matching Darnold’s four touchdowns. An early field goal proves to be the difference as the Texans escape with an exciting victory. (Texans 31-28)
Week 16: Texans (10-4) at Eagles (11-3)
Sometimes, life isn’t fair. Houston and Jacksonville enter Week 16 tied for first place in the AFC South. But the Jaguars head downstate to take on the hapless Dolphins while the Texans face the defending Super Bowl champs in Philadelphia.
The Eagles can clinch home-field advantage throughout the playoffs and rest all their starters in Week 17 if they come away with a victory today. Houston’s defense slows the Eagles attack, but Philadelphia all but stops the Texans. (Eagles 20-14)
Week 17: Jaguars (11-4) at Texans (10-5)
With a win against the Jaguars under their belt, this game is for all the AFC South marbles. Jacksonville can capture home-field advantage throughout the playoffs with a win. Houston grabs a first-round bye and at least one home game if they can pull it out.
In time, historians will decide if Blake Bortles or Deshaun Watson is the better quarterback. On this day, experience wins out. Jacksonville’s defense brings everything they’ve got to Houston. Watson fails to score a touchdown for the first time all season. (Jaguars 20-9)
What happens next?
It’s a bittersweet joy for Houston fans when they travel to New England for a Wild Card game. How far they go is anybody’s guess. Meanwhile, nightmares of that two-game stretch against Cleveland and Indianapolis will linger until the Texans start all over in 2019.
