2015 Houston Texans Schedule | Season Handicapping Picks

2015 NFL Football – Texans Analysis

The Houston Texans‘ 9-7 record from last season may not seem overly impressive on paper, but it’s important to recognize that they put together nearly double-digit wins despite the significant issues they had at quarterback.

Texans Odds

2015 Houston Texans Odds to win the 2016 Super Bowl: 50/1
2015 Houston Texans Odds to win the 2015 AFC Conference: 20/1
2015 Season Win Total: Falcons 8.5 wins (OVER -125 , UNDER -105); 2014 wins: 9
***2015 BONUSES***

While the Texans’ 2014-15 campaign didn’t exactly go according to plan, it should have left fans in Houston with a sense of optimism of what’s to come.

Let’s take a look at each game on Houston’s schedule and determine whether or not to bet over or under on the 8.5 games predicted for this group this year.

Week 1: Sunday, Sept. 13 vs. Kansas City (1 p.m.)

Week 1 will be the first time we see Houston’s newest QB and (hopefully) improved defense. The Chiefs went 9-7 last in 2014-15 and was sub-.500 on the road. Let’s chalk this up for a Texans win.

Week 2: Sunday, Sept. 20 @ Carolina (1 p.m.)

The Carolina Panthers’ Cam Newton has beat to hell last season, and that’s why the team did what it needed to do to help protect him better this season, including signing Michael Oher. If the addition works according to plan, Houston will have a difficult time getting to Newton, and that will be bad news for the Texans.

Week 3: Sunday, Sept. 27 vs. Tampa Bay (1 p.m.)

Jameis Winston is officially on board for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but that’s not going to instantly turn things around for this group — especially in Week 3. Texans get a win to advance to 2-1.

Week 4: Sunday, Oct. 4 @ Atlanta (1 p.m.)

By this point in the season, Houston should be jelling with an offense and have a better feel for success at quarterback. Atlanta is another team transitioning, so Houston should have the edge.

Week 5: Thursday, Oct. 8 vs. Indianapolis (8:25 p.m.)

Indianapolis is going to remind the Texans that even an easy schedule has speed bumps along the way. Houston has historically struggled against the Colts, and that trend should continue with the best receiver in team history now on the other side.

Week 6: Sunday, Oct. 18 @ Jacksonville (1 p.m.)

The only upside to a Thursday game against the Colts is that it gives the Texans plenty of time to prepare for a road contest in Week 6 against Jacksonville.

The Texans’ defense should be too much for Jacksonville, so you’re looking at a relatively easy win — even if it’s relatively low scoring for both sides

Week 7: Sunday, Oct. 25 @ Miami (1 p.m.)

This has the potential to be a close contest. Miami has improved, but has it improved enough to be considered a conference contender? Let’s look at Houston as the slight favorite.

Week 8: Sunday, Nov. 1 vs. Tennessee (1 p.m.)

Unless Marcus Mariota has managed to turn around the entire Tennessee Titans organization on his own, this should be an easy win for the Texans. *Spoiler alert: A lot of teams are going to be using that exact same sentence about their chances against Tennessee this season.

Week 9: Bye

Week 10: Monday, Nov. 16 @ Cincinnati (8:30 p.m.)

Houston has two postseason victories against Cincinnati, but it was the Bengals that had Houston’s number last season. It’s quite possible Houston has a sense of complacency following a bye week, losing a close one to Cincinnati.

Week 11: Sunday, Nov. 22 vs. New York Jets (1 p.m.)

Welcome back, Ryan Fitzpatrick. His homecoming should be a solid one — for the Texans. A win puts Houston at 7-3 at this point in the season.

Week 12: Sunday, Nov. 29 vs. New Orleans (1 p.m.)

This one’s a toss-up. New Orleans is going through change, which balances the odds a bit. Winnable game? Absolutely. Will Houston win? We’ll say no until we see how both side are performing entering Week 12.

Week 13: Sunday, Dec. 6 @ Buffalo (1 p.m.)

Week 13 should feature a low-scoring contest on both sides. Luckily for Houston, we’ve got it squeaking out a win regardless.

Week 14: Sunday Dec. 13 vs. New England (1 p.m.)

And here are the Super Bowl champions from the 2013-14 season. Unlike the contest against the Bills, we’re probably looking at a barn burner here. Also unlike the contest against the Bills, we’ve got the Patriots as the ones squeaking out the victory.

Week 15: Sunday, Dec. 20, at Indianapolis, 1 p.m.

Barring an unforeseen dominance from Houston, Andre Johnson will likely get the 2-0 series victory against the Texans.

The playoffs, however, will still be within reach for this Houston squad regardless of what happens in Week 15.

Week 16: Sunday, Dec. 27 @ Tennessee (1 p.m.)

Remember what we said about the Tennessee Titans? Still applies a few weeks late. Victory: Houston.

Week 17: Sunday, Jan. 3 vs. Jacksonville (1 p.m.)

And so we reach the end of the regular season. Houston will need this win to reach double-digit victories. And you know what? It’s going to get it.

2015 Texans NFL Prediction

The 8.5 win projection seems low. Count this team in for the over, going for 10 wins when it’s all said and done.
