4 things Texans fans can be optimistic about

Football season is right around the corner and the Houston Texans are coming off an 11-5 season.

The Texans do face some challenges though, like having a more difficult schedule this year, and having to deal with the Chiefs and Patriots in the AFC.

Week 12 is upon us which means we are in the homestretch for fantasy playoff positioning. If you still have something to play for you will want to pay attention to the weather this week as all but two games will be played outdoors this weekend. Weather will be active in the Northeast on Sunday and could impact over half of the games being played with rain and some snow possible in a number of locations.

The map will give you a general idea of which games could see impacts, however you will definitely want to check back in with me Sunday morning (@stephenuzick on Twitter) to get the latest forecast updates.
