The Texans are one day away from game number one of the season against the Indianapolis Colts, and everything that has happen in the preseason is out the window. The games are worth something now and the Texans have every opportunity to make their mark of the AFC South and shoot for their first division title in team history.

There is some reason to smile about what the Texans have on the roster, and there are some rival 1-2 punches in the NFL, like the Carolina Panthers (DeAngelo Williams and Johnathan Stewart) and Kansas City (Jamal Charles and Thomas Jones), but a 1-2-3-4 punch?
