Jay Prosch Jersey White Antworten

What does the configuration of the schedule mean for the Texans?"As we learned last year J.J. Watt Jersey , the scheduling of the NFL season can make or break a team.Last year, the Texans could have been home for the NFL Playoffs with a bye if their Week 16 Eagles game took place earlier in the season, when Philadelphia was struggling.Although the schedule does not affect how well teams perform, it is significant in how teams shake out at the end of the season.Let’s break down the Texans’ 2019 schedule by dividing it into four quarters, with each quarter being comprised of four games.Weeks 1-4: @ Saints (MNF), vs. Jaguars, @ Chargers, vs. PanthersTo open up the season with the Saints on the road is a major YIKES!The last important NFL game to take place in New Orleans was the NFC Championship, where the Saints lost controversially and unexpectedly.Now the Saints will come marching in with all eyes on reversing their fortunes by beating the Texans for all of America to see on national TV.If it is any consolation, the Saints fell to the lowly Bucs during their home opener last year after losing the previous year in the playoffs to the Vikings in the Minnesota Miracle.I would not tab the Saints as an automatic win or loss just yet. It could be a benefit to play the Saints early in the season before they get into a rhythm.Or it could be the worst case scenario.As for the other games to begin the season, the Jaguars pose as a winnable game in Houston’s home opener, and playing the Chargers early in the season might also be a benefit.These are the games that players will miss with four-game PED suspensions or by being placed on the PUP list.I think 2-2 is difficult with this first foursome, but achievable. Weeks 5-8: vs. Falcons Christian Covington Jersey White , @ Chiefs, @ Colts, vs. RaidersThe home games in this stretch are winnable, but they are sandwiched around two very difficult road games against playoff teams from a year ago.This means that defeating the Falcons and Raiders will be two very important contests for the Texans, as the Chiefs and Colts games are two games the Texans will be expected to lose.If the Texans can go 2-2 in this quarter, it will be an accomplishment. Going 3-1 or 4-0 would be phenomenal, and the Texans would be considered as a playoff threat at this point in the season.If the Texans can get to 5-3, I’d be very content. 4-4 wouldn’t be bad either. 3-5 or worse is very possible and would worry me.Weeks 9-13: @ Jaguars (London), BYE, @ Ravens, Colts (TNF), Patriots (SNF)Here comes the true gauntlet in Houston’s schedule.The Texans play their first game in franchise history outside of North America when the team faces the Jags in LondonThe Jags are a beatable opponent, but it will be interesting to see how the Texans will adjust to playing in London against a team with a lot of players with London experience. It could cause the visitors to slip up and fumble a winnable game.After the team returns home and enjoys their bye Shane Lechler Jersey White , the toughest three-game stretch in the 2019 schedule awaits.All three opponents in Weeks 11-13 played extra football last season. The Ravens can improve in Year 2 of the Lamar Jackson era, and the Texans have never played particularly well in Baltimore.Then come the Colts and Pats, the two teams that have given the Texans the most trouble as of late, both of which will be played in primetime.It would be nice for this to be the time where the Pats hit their midseason slump or for the Colts to be ailing on a short week, but recent history suggests that neither will happen.If the Texans can get two wins out of this quarter of the season, I’ll be impressed.Weeks 14-17: vs. Broncos, @ Titans, @ Bucs, vs. TitansThe best part about Houston’s schedule is that four of the final six games take place at NRG Stadium.Kareem Jackson makes his return to Houston in Week 14 as the Broncos face his former Texans.The Broncos game could be a season-saving game if the Texans win, so the team will need to be sharp on that day.Then comes the unusual two games in three weeks stretch with the Titans and Bucs sandwiched in the middle.It’s very possible that the Titans could be eliminated from playoff contention at this point in the season, which will help the Texans chances. Then again, the Texans might also be eliminated from playoff contention if they cannot get past the prior midseason gauntlet.The Bucs on the road in December is an excellent part of the schedule. The Texans struggled last year playing the Eagles so close to Christmas.The coldest game of the year might come in Nashville during Week 15 or maybe Baltimore in Week 11.This final quarter is probably the easiest for the Texans, so if the team can stay in playoff contention for the first twelve games Braxton Miller Jersey White , they’ll have a great chance to make the playoffs with a favorable schedule to end the season.The Texans had the easiest schedule in the league last season based on win percentage. Now, their strength of schedule ranks fourth in the league at .527 based on last year’s strength of schedule. It’s definitely a big change, but the Texans’ win-loss record won’t come down to who they play and when they do, but rather how they play on the field.What’s your best guess as to how the Texans will fare in 2019? The National Football League has a long regular season of sixteen games, spanning almost four full calendar months.A lot of teams go through certain phases over the duration of a season, as if the season is one elegant novel composed of eventful, but unique chapters.The roller coaster that has been the 2018 Houston Texans’ season is exactly how Mark Twain would have scripted it if he were still alive and assigned to tell the story of a football team.The plot is simple. The overly flawed protagonist falls into a hole, becomes resilient, rides a wave of success and luck before the magic slowly dies out as the goal lies within reach.The road to the NFL Playoffs for these Houston Texans fits that bill like Cinderella and her glass slipper.Looking like he might be just a flash-in-the-pan early in the season, unable to recapture his rookie year magic, September had Deshaun Watson looking like what he was—a young player still recovering from a torn ACL.Watson’s play was sloppy.His legs were not quite working yet. Everything on a football team begins with the quarterback, the most important position in all of sports, and Watson didn’t look like the guy who set the league on fire in 2017.An opening day loss in New England , followed by two more losses to the Tennessee Titans and the New York Giants, put the Texans at 0-3, leaving them with a 2.8 percent chance of securing postseason berth. Only five of the 153 teams that started the season 0-3 since 1980 have reached the playoffs.The Texans proceeded to rally for a nine-game winning streak to reach the top of the AFC South division, squarely in contention for a first-round bye. The tables turned as Deshaun Watson began looking like the rookie dynamo he was last year and Houston’s defense saw improvement, most notably against the rush.The Texans finished third in the league in rushing yards allowed per game at 82.7, just behind the Bears and Saints. They allowed 3.4 yards per attempt, which ranks them first in the league in that statistical category.Of course, some fortunate late-game miscues by opponents assisted the Texans on some of their nine consecutive wins. Most folks outside of Houston disregarded this team as a true contender due to their excessive lack of style points in their wins.Good thing the NFL is not college football.The finish of the regular season was far from smooth. After losing at home to the Colts via a dominant performance from Andrew Luck, the Texans had their hands full with the New York Jets, squeaking by on a late touchdown.Houston followed that up with a last-second field goal loss to the Eagles in Philadelphia and a ho-hum win at home against the Jaguars, leaving some down on these Texans as the NFL Playoffs loom and Indianapolis Colts loom.JJ Watt will need to spearhead this defense if they have real aspirations in the postseason.Troy Taormina-USA TODAY SportsIn retrospect, 2018 has been a tale of three seasons. They just all happened to occur in the same four month period of 2018.The first season was full of dysfunction came early.Houston fans quickly put their hopes in the Astros repeating their World Series run of 2017 as the Texans appeared headed for a top ten pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.The second season, known as “The Magic Carpet Ride Jay Prosch Jersey White ,” gave the Texans a historic winning streak that lasted two and a half months, propelling them from the graveyard to a potential first-round bye.The third season began once the winning streak ended, and it was time to see how this group would respond in the thick of a playoff race.There is a fourth season that begins this Saturday against the Colts. The postseason. While national attention will be directed towards the Chiefs and Patriots as it pertains to the AFC, the Texans will look to continue their under-the-radar journey and win a home playoff game for just the fourth time in franchise history.As good the novel has been so far, it would only be fitting if it were concluded in nail-biting fashion.That has been the name of the game for these Texans.No win is overly impressive.No loss is overly deflating. Everything seems to come down to a few plays, no matter how well or poor they perform.The Texans can look like the more talented and superior team yet still escape on a missed last-second field goal.Or they can look overmatched for sixty minutes and potentially come within an offsides penalty of having a chance to tie a game.Whichever result comes to pass on Saturday will only further write the novel that details how the season has gone for the Texans:The Little Engine That Couldn’t, But Then Sorta Could: The Story of the 2018 Houston Texans
