Welcome to SB Nation FanPulse, a survey of fans across the NFL, powered by SurveyMonkey. Each week, we send 32 polls to 100+ plugged in fans from each team. Texans fans, sign up HERE to join FanPulse.
NFL rosters will be tinkered with all the way through the preseason, but with the 2019 NFL Draft in the rear view mirror, virtually all of the players who will comprise the 2019 Houston Texans’ 53-man roster are now under contract. What we have now is pretty close to what we’ll get when the Texans face the Saints in New Orleans for the opening stanza of Monday Night Football on September 9th.
With that reality in mind, FanPulse asked NFL fans whether they thought their team would exceed or fall short of the number of wins Vegas predicted in 2019. Here’s what the Texans fans surveyed had to say:
Now that the 2019 NFL Draft is over, do you believe the Texans will win more or less than 8.5 games during the 2019 regular season?
Over 8.5 games: 61%.
Under 8.5 games: 39%.
Many have pegged the Texans’ 2019 schedule as one of the, if not the, toughest in the league. Do you believe the Texans will win more than eight games this season? Are you surprised 61% of Texans fans who responded to this survey thought they would?
