According to some NFL circles, the New York Giants will be watching the Houston Texans closely following Week 17. Because if Houston fires coach Bill O’Brien, New York could emerge as an interested suitor. This certainly makes sense. O’Brien has led the Texans to two AFC South titles in his four seasons manning the Houston sidelines. The 2017 season has been a disaster. But given the number of injuries the Texans have had to deal with, it’s hard to pin that solely on the coach. O’Brien’s teams have generally found ways to be at least competent offensively.
