Between injuries, off the field controversies, and losses, the Texans have had a chaotic first 10 games in 2017. But in a wide open AFC, the Texans are just a game out of the playoffs.

“There’s a lot of season left and the way it’s played out, that’s what it is,” said Texans head coach Bill O’Brien of his 4-6 team Monday. “You’ve been around forever. You know that there’s a reason why they play a 16-game season. There’s a lot of football left and we need to really build on what we did. We got a different opponent obviously, another very tough opponent on the road on a Monday night and we got to be ready for that opponent. But, everybody knows that there’s a lot of football left.”

If the season were to end today, the 6-4 Titans (5-4 AFC) would be the AFC’s top seeded Wild Card team. The Ravens (5-5, 4-3 AFC) hold the 6th and final playoff spot, and will host the Texans next Monday.

With 6 games left, the Texans are currently the 10th seed in the AFC. They trail the Bills (5-5, 3-3 AFC), Dolphins (4-6, 3-3 AFC), and Jets (4-6, 4-4 AFC) respectively on the outside looking in. They lead the Bengals (4-6, 4-5 AFC) thanks to their 13 – 9 victory over Cincinnati in week 2. After the Bengals, the 4-6 Chargers (3-5 AFC), 4-6 Raiders (4-5 AFC), 3-7 Colts (2-4 AFC), and 3-7 Broncos round out the AFC playoff picture. The 0-10 Browns were eliminated Sunday.

“I know we don’t have a winning record, but I’m very proud of this team. This team’s had to deal with a lot of different things and they’ve been able to overcome it,” said O’Brien of his Texans. “We’re still in position to do something. We’ve got to go put a game plan together for Baltimore and see if we can go up there and win a game.”
