When the NFL schedule was released, teams who found the Houston Texans on their schedule may sense that they’re in for a long day on the gridiron. That’s because the Texans plan to wreak havoc with their superb defensive line that boasts the presence of two-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft Jadeveon Clowney, who is coming back almost his entire rookie season, and newly acquired defensive tackle Vince Wilfork up the middle. It is reasonable to think that Houston might possess one of the best defensive groups in football.
The offense will astoundingly be without wide receiver Andre Johnson for the first time since 2003, and are rolling with former Cleveland Browns starter Brian Hoyer as their starting quarterback. Houston believes a change of scenery will have Hoyer playing like he did two years ago before suffering a season-ending injury.
With the addition of the No. 16 pick in the NFL Draft, the Texans will try to topple the Indianapolis Colts at the top of their division. Below are the Texans most expensive and least expensive games of the season, according to ScoreBig.
Most Expensive: 12/20/2015 | Indianapolis Colts vs. Houston Texans | Lucas Oil Stadium | Average Price: $382.37 | Get-in Price: $56
As if anyone expected anything else. This division rivalry has created the most expensive Houston Texans tickets of the season, as the Colts defeated the Texans twice last season en route to another division title. The Texans are simply trying to get back to the playoffs in 2015, but know eventually they’ll have expectations of winning a division title, and defeating the Colts would be a great start towards reaching that goal. Fans of teams in the AFC South should be excited they get to see Andrew Luck against Watt twice a year.
Least Expensive: Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Houston Texans | EverBank Field | Average Price: $176.68 | Get-in: $32
In their least expensive game of the year, the Texans will look to repeat their 2014 mastery of the Jacksonville Jaguars. In Week 14, the Texans defeated their AFC South rivals, 27-13, on the road and in Week 17, capped off the season with a 23-17 victory to reach 9-7. It was a big jump from the 2013 season, where the Texans lost both meetings, en route to a 2-14 season. The seven-game jump was impressive and the Texans have to continue to win their meetings with the Jaguars and Tennessee Titans if they want to dethrone the Colts for first place in the division. Houston’s most recent AFC South title came in 2012.
