Why the Texans' win against the Patriots means more than you think

The Texans recorded a huge win against the Patriots on Sunday night which puts them in the driver's seat to win the AFC South.

They have some work to do to be considered legit Super Bowl contenders, but the win over New England certainly means they're heading in the right direction.

The Astros have now lost five straight games and the starting pitching and bullpen have let them down over that stretch. Cristian Javier was recently demoted to help him build up his stamina so that he can pitch deeper in games as the team's 5th starter when the schedule demands a 5-man starting rotation. But in the meantime, the Astros could desperately use his help out of the bullpen, and he's likely headed for relief duty when Framber Valdez returns from injury anyway. So this begs the question, is a role as the team's fifth starter the best way to maximize Javier's abilities? Check out the video to find out.
