Data Is Beautiful: A Visualization of Houston's Records Against the AFC South

New, comments

Just how dominant have the Colts been within the AFC South for the last decade plus? Just how bad have the Texans been in that same time period? You might not like the answers.

The AFC South has predominantly been "the Colts and everyone else" for the last thirteen years since the Texans entered the National Football League. Unfortunately for the boys in battle red, their record against the Evil Indiana Empire reflects that very same imbalance.

Here are some wonderful visualizations of the Texans’ records against each of their AFC South rivals courtesy of Reddit user "Kanuhduh". Well, maybe not wonderful - perhaps "heartache-inducing" would be a better way to describe them. Either way, this is your weekly reminder that playoff appearances and relatively efficient football teams are something that should be cherished at all times. You never know when it can all come crashing down in an instant (I'm looking at you, 2013 season).

Depressing, isn’t it? Yeah…I thought so, too.
