The Houston Texans are the worst NFL team this year. Between their poor selection of players and their seemingly difficult game schedule, they have yet to secure the winning streak that they need to excel. Unfortunately, compared to other teams, this makes them one of the worst teams currently playing in the NFL.
If you look at early October, it was Miami, but the Vikings and Eagles aren't looking so good now. In the power rankings, Cleveland is at the bottom, so there are plenty of bad teams to choose from. The Texans just lost to San Diego, and Osweiler's season is being called laughable, so they are in the running.
The Houston Texans are definitely bad, but the city of Cleveland even knows their team is so bad they are planning a parade for a perfect season if the Browns don't win any games. It's hard to believe with the draft picks they get, but Cleveland continues to be the worst team year after year.
While the Texans are performing horribly this season I don't think they are the worst team. Other teams have performed very badly: Browns and the Chiefs are two. There is still some time to improve but reaching the playoffs is obviously out of the question now but hopes for next year are always a possibility.
