I wanted to take this in two parts.
I was wondering what is the average record of the #11 pick over the past 8 years:
Essentially outside of the top top will likely require 7 wins, but possibly 6. To get to 7 wins, the Texans must go 5-2 over the last 7. To get to 6 they must go 4-3. For a team that has lost 7 straight games, and came very close to losing the first 2, this would be a Herculean effort. If not for a ridiculous comeback in Game 1 and taking advantage of a relatively weak squad at home, the Texans could easily be 0-9 rather than 2-7 right now.
Given the rest of the schedule, I think the Texans lose to the Broncos, Patriots, Colts, Titans. I think they can beat the Raiders and Jags(though I am not as sure about the Jags road game.) I am thinking they finish the final 7 games 3-4 or 2-5 and end up with a 5-11 or 6-10 record. That would put them in the middle to late top 10(say 6-10.)
