Texans Offseason 2012: Houston Picked To Win AFC South By SB Nation

Everyone can feel the energy in Houston. The anticipation for the Texans season is nothing like it's ever been before. Same goes for the expectation. They're talking Super Bowl around town, in the media, everywhere.

So it should come as no surprise that SB Nation's very own Joel Thorman is picking the Texans to win the AFC South division:

The Texans will repeat in the AFC South because they'll have a healthy Matt Schaub. Think about what they did last year. Schaub only started 10 games -- he went 7-3 -- before suffering a season-ending injury. T.J. Yates, a fifth round rookie, stepped in and led them to the playoffs. Another division title should be expected in Houston.
