HOUSTON (SPORTSRADIO 610) – With the 20-13 win over Buffalo, the Texans have battled back to a .500 record at 3-3 after losing their first three games in a row.

“I feel good for the guys in there. I think that was a really important win right there. But, as a team this is a very, very tough, competitive, resilient football team that will do anything to win and that’s what I’m most proud of relative to coaching these guys,” Texans Head Coach Bill O’Brien said after the game on Sunday.

With the win the Texans are tied with the Chargers for the second longest active win streak in the AFC behind only Kansas City, who have won five straight entering Sunday night. 

“Three games in a row. It’s momentum. This is the NFL. It’s a momentum league, so we just got to keep it going,” Texans Wide Receiver DeAndre Hopkins added.

Losses by Jacksonville and Tennessee in week six also have the Texans tied with those two teams at the top of the AFC South with a 3-3 record.  The momentum is nice, the streak is nice, but now that the Texans are back to level and tied for the division lead, they are aware there is still everything to play for the rest of the year.

“It’s great. Three in a row, three and three. We’re back where we want to be. We’ve got a great opportunity next week on the road in Jacksonville. The season is still in front of us. We just kept believing, we’re going to keep believing, keep pushing forward and keep fighting,” Texans Quarterback Deshaun Watson said.  “This is a special team for what we’ve been through these past six weeks. I love all of the guys in the locker room. The locker room is very special. No one flinches, and everyone just keeps fighting and trying to finish the game out. And that’s what we’ve been doing. We’re just going to keep building on this win and keep trying to improve.”
