The Houston Texans are having their best season ever but some fans are still having trouble buying into the team. They look at the Texans’ schedule and say “who have they beaten?”

However, if you look at the other elite teams in the NFL you might be surprised by what their schedule looks like.

It is true that the Texans have beaten several bad teams, but those wins still count. There are three teams in the NFL that are 7-3 (Texans, Steelers and Saints), and they all have their flaws.

That is not to say that they don’t have a chance to make a deep run into the playoffs.

There is not a feeling, at least in the Houston market, that either the Steelers or the Saints have benefited from the same type of cushy scheduling. However, the teams that the Saints have faced total just three more wins than the teams that the Texans have defeated.

The teams the Steelers have defeated have only won two more games than the teams the Texans beat.

The good teams in the NFL don’t face one or two loss teams every week. There are only five teams in the NFL that have the same or better record than the Texans, and they all face the same teams that struggle to put together a complete game.

The Texans shouldn’t be disparaged just because they have to play against 0-10 Indianapolis, it’s not their fault, and everyone has to face some bad teams.
