The Texans finished last year’s season with a disappointing 4-12 record. However, most of the Texans struggles were due to a JJ Watt injury, which ended his season as early as Week 5. On top of that, Deshaun Watson was taken out of the game in Week 9. Before that the Texans’ rookie quarterback had broken some rookie records while captivating the entire NFL. Ultimately Houston has plenty to look forward to this upcoming season as they’ll finally have enough pieces in place on both sides of the ball to make a legitimate push for the playoffs. Bill O’Brien will lead this team once again in 2018. So far he’s led this team to an undefeated performance through 2 preseason games.
Players to Watch: Deshaun Watson (1,699 passing yards, 19 TD, 8 INT), Lamar Miller (888 rushing yards, 3 TD, 1 F), DeAndre Hopkins (1,378 receiving yards, 13 TD, 96 REC).
Los Angeles Rams
The Rams broke out onto the scene last year with Sean McVay, the youngest coach in NFL history. In the end, McVay’s youth worked out in his favor as he was able to connect with his players and team in a very compelling fashion. Ultimately it was this connection that led to the Rams 11-5 season. All things considered, Los Angeles was one of the most dominant teams throughout the regular season. They were elite on defense forcing turnovers at every turn. And they were damn near unstoppable on offense, which is evident by the below listed stats. As we head in the 2018 season, Rams fans can’t shake a feeling that this will be another dominant season.
Players to Watch: Jared Goff (3,804 passing yards, 28 TD, 7 INT), Todd Gurley II (1,305 rushing yards, 13 TD, 5 F), and Cooper Kupp (869 receiving yards, 5 TD, 62 REC).
