Texans look like team to beat in AFC

 
Tags:NFL

The Houston Texans needed a win over Baltimore to enter their bye with the AFC’s best record. The lopsided victory gave them that, and clearly separated them from the second-place Ravens and the rest of the conference. Still, the Texans (6-1) know they can’t be too impressed yet. “You can’t look at the big picture because when you get too far ahead of yourself, that’s when bad things happen,” receiver Andre Johnson (pictured right) said. But with a dominant defense allowing the second fewest points in the AFC coupled with the second-highest scoring offense in the conference, they’ve become the team to beat in the AFC. Aside from Houston and Baltimore, New England (4-3) is the only AFC team with more than three wins. – Associated Press
