HOUSTON (AP) – The Houston Texans secured the AFC’s best record before using their bye for a long break to rest and recharge. Now they chase their goal of reaching the Super Bowl.
The first task comes when they host Buffalo on Sunday.
The biggest concern for the Texans (6-1) coming out of the bye week is depth at running back with Ben Tate hampered by a hamstring injury. Coach Gary Kubiak hoped the break would give Tate time to get healthy. Instead Tate missed practice Monday, and Kubiak said he’s still “a few days away” from getting back on the field.
