The Houston Texans are making their official return to the playoffs today against the Cleveland Browns.

NFL: Cleveland Browns at Houston Texans Thomas Shea-USA TODAY Sports

The Houston Texans host the Cleveland Browns today to kick off Super Wild Card Weekend. But before the two teams line up, we polled some surveyors to see how they feel about the team going into Saturday’s game.

In a poll, surveyors were asked about how confident they feel in the Texans’ direction as a franchise. An overwhelming 98 percent of surveyors believe the team is heading in the right direction.

The Texans are going in the right direction for a few reasons, but the biggest catalyst for their success is likely C.J. Stroud, who was voted team MVP by surveyors with 85 percent of the vote.

Surveyors are confident that Stroud can lead the Texans to victory in the playoffs. An overwhelming 82 percent of voters believe Houston can pull out a win today against Cleveland despite losing to the Browns in Week 16.

As it goes for the rest of the playoffs. most people think that the team’s playoff run won’t advance past next week. Most surveyors think that next week is the Texans’ stopping point in their playoff run; 38 percent of surveyors believe the team will exit in the Divisional Round while 19 percent believe the season ends today. However, 27 percent of surveyors believe the team will make it to the AFC Championship and 14 percent believe the Texans can win it all!
