Last year, the Houston Texans were eliminated by the Kansas City Chiefs in the divisional playoffs by a wide margin of 20 points. They finished as the best team in the AFC South with a record of 10-6 and will look to try out the team’s improvements for the first game of the season. The team will be led by Left End JJ Watt who was also considered one best in his position. At the quarterback this year will be Deshaun Watson who fairly did well last season but has a strong upside moving forward to his career. Watson will rely on Brandin Cooks’ hands to catch most of his throws this season and he will get some protection from Laremy Tunsil at Left Tackle.

Kansas City Chiefs
The Kansas City Chiefs will start defending their title and they look solid for this season to go back-to-back. They finished the regular season last year with 12-4 record and the second-best team in the AFC. This year, they hope to improve on their playoff position for a better chance of repeating. Leading the charge will be Patrick Mahomes at quarterback and much is expected from him this year. Tight End Travis Kelce will be the main option for Mahomes on the offensive line while Mitchell Schwartz at the right tackle will be the main protector. Tyreke Hill will be the team’s wide receiver and he is one of the best in the NFL right now.
