Can the Texans go undefeated?
Matt Schaub & Co. face favorable schedule, but have more to prove

Houston is good. Very good, in fact. But how good can they be by the end of the season? Can they win the Super Bowl? For sure. I mentioned that their division cannot keep up with the Texans, but how about the rest of their schedule? Can they go undefeated?

Obviously, it is very early to discuss such a thing, but let's just say the Texans get past Week 6 and 7 when they play host to Green Bay and Baltimore … then the undefeated talk will be going full force. They visit Chicago in Week 10 and New England in Week 14. Any team can lose any given week in the NFL, and those are the four difficult games on Houston's schedule. Compared to some of the daunting schedules faced by the NFL's other top teams, that challenge isn't too terrible. But going undefeated takes more than a relatively easy schedule. It demands perfection.
I like reading the hype, but undefeated article in week 3? C'mon, I love the Texans, but its way, way early...

We don't need to go undefeated. Let's win the AFC South and get a bye. Then let's secure home field if we can. Undefeated is overrated, unless you are talking about the playoffs

If we can continue to get better every week, who knows. We should be 5-0 and if healthy who scares you?

The 49ers destroyed Green Bay and then beat the Lions only to lose to the Vikings.

Any given Sunday.

Exactly. The Texans lost to the Colts last year.

The odds against an undefeated season are so high that even entertaining the thought of it after week 3 is absurd.

We all know Kubiak won't allow an undefeated season. Once we get a playoff bye with homefield, the starters will play one-quarter games.

And that's with CJ-No-K still a non-factor and MegaTron amassing over 160 yds & a TD!
I dunno. With the Jets up next, the Titans could be a trap game.

This is the first time Houston has had the best team in the NFL. There is no question in my mind that we are the best team in this league. This team is going to give us what we Houston fans have been thirsting forever: a Super Bowl win.

To be fair, the Titans scored 21 points on defense and special teams. 2 return TDs and a fumble return TD.

They didn't have a single scoring play (TD) less than 50 yards. If we can not give up huge plays, we should be fine

Agreed. The Titans had a very strange game against an undisciplined Detroit team. I don't think we'll have the same problems with them (or any for that matter). Locker's wheels are a little scary though.

Well, you can call anything "crazy-a$$", but the Redskins also beat the Saints at home, and they (The Saints) are now 0-3 against teams who's cumulative record this season when playing teams not named the Saints is 0-6. The Cards finished last season wining 6 out of their last 8 (including beating the Niners), and that number isnow 9 of their last 11 (so maybe they don't really suck), and the Vikes "shredding" the Niner defense consisted of less than 200 yards passing, and a rushing number of 3.6 YPC.

Oh, and those 44 points by the Titans includes 3 Defensive/Special Teams TD's, which is one more than they got from the offense.
