2017 NFL Power Rankings (Week 7): Bye Week Battle for Position

Where do the Texans stand going into the bye? After a win against the Browns in which the Texans scored more than 30 points in their fourth consecutive game, the Texans head into their bye in unfamiliar territory, a Top 2 scoring offense.

Street Clothes Special: Texans - Browns

Who’s on the bench today? See inside. The Texans begin their post-J.J. Watt and Whitney Mercilus season today, against the Cleveland Browns.

Street Clothes Special: Texans vs. Titans

Not everyone gets to play today, due to injury or badness. See who’s sitting this afternoon’s festivities out inside. For today’s game between the Houston Texans and Tennessee Titans, each head coach has to name seven men who won’t get the honor of suiting up at NRG Stadium for this week’s AFC South game.
