The 2020-2021 Houston Texans season was an absolute disaster from head to toe. They finished the season 4-12. Head coach Bill O’Brien was fired after an 0-4 start to the season, and Romeo Crennel took over for the remainder of the season.
The Texans went 6-10 against the spread in the 2020-2021 season, and if you bet on their over/under, they were 9-6-1.
Deshaun Watson still had an incredible season, as he threw for a career-high in passing yards and touchdowns. Unfortunately for the Clemson product, he had absolutely no help around him. Houston had one of the worst offensive lines in the league last year, and a defense that gave up the third-most yards per game.
To make matters worse for Texans fans, sexual assault allegations surfaced in March around their franchise quarterback. His status with the team going forward isn’t clear. That resulted in Houston drafting quarterback Davis Mills in the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft.
In the offseason, the Texans lost longtime defensive end and three-time Defensive Player of the Year, J.J. Watt. Wide receivers Will Fuller and Randall Cobb signed elsewhere, and linebacker Benardrick McKinney joined the Dolphins. Center Nick Martin was released at the end of February, after spending four seasons in the Space City.
GM Nick Caserio made a bunch of additions, however, trading for edge rusher Shaq Lawson and right tackle Marcus Cannon. Houston also signed linebacker Christian Kirksey, defensive end Maliek Collins, and veteran running back Mark Ingram. Houston also signed mobile quarterback Tyrod Taylor, who could very well start Week 1 if Watson’s situation isn’t figured out soon.
Action 247 Sportsbook has the Texans over/under for wins this season set at 4. Houston is +2900 to win the AFC South, and has the worst odds to win Super Bowl 56 at +19900.
