Poll: How far will the 2023 Houston Texans go?

No postseason, all the way or somewhere in between?

No one really expected the 2023 Houston Texans to have control of their own destiny late in December when this season started. But, they did have it, and unfortunately lost it. However, that doesn’t mean the Texans don’t still have a shot at the playoffs and, ultimately, their first ever Super Bowl title.

Yes, that sounds far-fetched too. But, so did the Texans making the playoffs when discussing this season last summer.

While the fanbase always sorts into a handful of camps: the overly optimistic, the pragmatic, the diehard faithful, the sky-is-falling-even-in-the-domers and whatnot, the real compelling bit about NFL football is you really never know what’s gonna happen.

Well, we all know the refs are gonna screw some players and teams every weekend, but aside from that...

So, it really comes down to: can the Texans defeat the Tennessee Titans once more and then go on to beat the Indianapolis Colts? We all know the BESFs and Baby Horses don’t need to be in the playoffs... and people expect them to lose. Right? H-Town FTW!

But, assuming those dominoes fall, where do you think the Texans punch their final ticket this year?

Are they one-and-done in the postseason? Wildcard weekend fodder for a better AFC contender?

Do they make it to the Divisional round, only to once again miss their chance to play for a conference championship?

Can DeMeco Ryans drag this team into their first ever AFC Conference Championship matchup?

If he does, can they win and make it to the Super Bowl?

Should they get to the big game, is it possible they win it all?

Well, odds are the Kansas City Chiefs, Miami Dolphins, Baltimore Ravens and whichever team represents the NFC in the Super Bowl might have something to say about that. But, no one here is asking them.

We’re asking you.
