The Houston Texans 2018 season has been over for two weeks ago because two weeks ago they lost to the Indianapolis Colts, the same Colts whose season is over, because they lost to the Kansas City Chiefs last week. So here we are in offseason purgatory. Caring about a team that isn’t good enough to still be playing football, and wasn’t bad enough to see any major shakeups. Everything is kind of dead.

BUT, something did happen. The Texans had J.J. Watt and DeAndre Hopkins named to the Pro Football Writers Association All-NFL team. Both players were also awarded All-Pro honors. The entire team is below:



QB – Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs

RB – Ezekiel Elliott, Dallas Cowboys; Todd Gurley, Los Angeles Rams

WR – DeAndre Hopkins, Houston Texans*; Julio Jones, Atlanta Falcons, and Michael Thomas, New Orleans Saints (tie)

TE – Travis Kelce, Kansas City Chiefs

C – Jason Kelce, Philadelphia Eagles*

G – Zack Martin, Dallas Cowboys &; Quenton Nelson, Indianapolis Colts

T – David Bakhtiari, Green Bay Packers; Mitchell Schwartz, Kansas City Chiefs


DE – Danielle Hunter, Minnesota Vikings; J.J. Watt, Houston Texans

DT – Fletcher Cox, Philadelphia Eagles; Aaron Donald, Los Angeles Rams

OLB – Khalil Mack, Chicago Bears; Von Miller, Denver Broncos

MLB – Bobby Wagner, Seattle Seahawks

CB – Kyle Fuller, Chicago Bears; Stephon Gilmore, New England Patriots

S – Eddie Jackson, Chicago Bears; Derwin James, Los Angeles Chargers

Special Teams

PK – Justin Tucker, Baltimore Ravens

P – Michael Dickson, Seattle Seahawks

KR – Andre Roberts, New York Jets

PR – Tarik Cohen, Chicago Bears

ST – Adrian Phillips, Los Angeles Chargers

Justin Reid also received an honor of his own. He was named to ESPN’s All-Rookie team. This is what ESPN had to say:

Reid’s teammate Johnathan Joseph summed up the rookie’s year the best: “He had a hell of a season.” Reid started the last 13 games, including the wild-card playoff game, for the league’s No. 4 scoring defense. Reid led the team with three interceptions and was the first player in team history to post the do-it-all stat line of least nine tackles, a special-teams tackle and a fumble recovery in the same game.
