Houston Texans: Week 12 NFL Power Rankings (#1)

Last week: 1 (+0)

Record: 9-1

They’re still the #1 team, but maybe only by default. I’m still not sold on any one team right now and maybe they’re just keeping this seat warm for the 49ers, who I’ll be sold on in a way I’m sold on no other if Kaepernick continues to start and proves last Monday was not a fluke. Instead, for right now, I think there are 6 teams that are in the upper echelon, with Houston at the top, but the Super Bowl will probably be won by the team who gets hot at the right time. It’s still very wide open.
