The Houston Texans are all about the future. Caretaker head coach David Culley was fired after not being given a fair chance in 2021. Culley inherited a team that played with one hand tied behind its back. More specifically, starting quarterback Deshaun Watson was suspended for the entire season. Thus, Houston was doomed from the start. In a strange move, the Texans hired Lovey Smith as the man to replace Culley. Smith had a solid run as head coach of the Chicago Bears. But his most recent gig as head coach at the University of Illinois was an abysmal failure. But Smith plays well with others and has that NFL record of success that the Texans could sell to the masses.

As for Deshaun Watson, he was traded, Herschel Walker Style, to the Cleveland Browns for a host of draft picks. The trade has sparked optimism about better days ahead in Houston. However, those better days do not include 2022, as gamblers expect another miserable year.

As a team that has been among the worst in the NFL, the Texans will not get much in the way of feature TV games. In fact, their only prime time game is in week nine at home against the Philadelphia Eagles on Prime Video. That game is scheduled for Thursday, November 3.

Houston has a potentially interesting game in week 13 when they host the Cleveland Browns. If Deshaun Watson is eligible, it is quite conceivable that he would be the Browns starting quarterback, returning home to Houston, where his career fell apart after such a promising start.

As far as fan pride goes, the Texans' week 14 game at the Dallas Cowboys rates higher than any other matchup in 2022. Before their infamous flameout at Kansas City, The Texans were a more successful franchise than the Cowboys. Yet it didn’t matter, as Dallas has always been the dominant brand in the state of Texas.

Houston is not a franchise that has lacked regular season success. The Texans made the playoffs six times from 2011 through 2019. However, their postseason record has been hapless, with no advancement past the divisional round. The Texans were founded as a 2002 expansion team following the move of the Houston Oilers to Tennessee.

Following their stunning 2019 AFC Divisional Playoff loss at the Kansas City Chiefs, the Texans have never been the same. Houston jumped out to a 24-0 lead early in the second quarter, and many fans and gamblers believed that the game was over. Instead, Kansas City exploded to score 41 unanswered points en route to a 51-31 win. The humiliation for the Texans has never been lived down. And it caused then-head coach and general manager Bill O’Brien to lose his mind.

In the offseason leading up to the 2020 campaign, O’Brien came off as unhinged with bizarre roster moves that seemed to have been an overreaction to the loss at Kansas City. The team tuned out O’Brien, and he was fired early in the 2020 campaign after an 0-4 start. Since that debacle in Kansas City, the Texans have never returned to the postseason.
