Texans set for regular season finale

What a difference a year makes for the Houston Texans. In fact, what a difference just three months have made.

The Texans will be trying to wrap up the AFC South title this afternoon when they host the Jaguars for a Noon kickoff.  Houston will take a 10-and-5 record into the game after finishing last in the division a year ago at 4-and-12.  And most fans probably didn't think this was possible after the season started with three straight losses. J.J. Watt wasn't thinking that way. But now he says it would be a shame to waste the hard work the team put in in going 10-2 over their last twelve games.

"We are our happy we are able to control our destiny," Watt said. "We will go out there and work towards a win."

The Texans also have the chance to clinch at home, which Watt says they are looking forward to.

"We're excited to be back home after being out on the east coast for the last two games," Watt stated.

While the Texans have turned their season around, the Jaguars have struggled. Jacksonville won the South last year with a 10-and-6 record and advanced to the AFC title game before losing to the Patriots.  This season the Jags are last in the division at 5-and-10.  After Cody Kessler started four games at quarterback for the Jags, they are going back to Blake Bortles for the season finale. Jacksonville lost their first meeting to the Texans earlier this year 20 to 7.
