HOUSTON - The Texans returned to NRG Stadium on Monday fresh off of their victory at Washington. The win extended their winning streak to seven games, tying for the franchise's longest since 2011.

Head coach Bill O'Brien addressed the media Monday, as he always does following a game. O'Brien was quick to point out that, as well as the team is playing, there are still areas that he knows the teams needs to work on to improve in the final stretch of the regular season.


"It really is a slim margin between now and where we were (at 0-3 to start the season). We are now making more plays in critical parts of games," O'Brien said.

The Texans return home for three straight games at NRG Stadium, starting with the Tennessee Titans (5-5) on Monday Night Football on Nov. 26. 

Houston then hosts the Cleveland Browns (3-6-1) and the Indianapolis Colts (5-5). If they win all three games, the Texans should clinch the AFC South division title.

Including the three aforementioned home games, the Texans don't face a team that is currently above .500 for the rest of their schedule:

Saturday, Dec. 15 at New York Jets (3-7)

Sunday, Dec. 23 at Philadelphia (4-6)

Sunday, Dec. 30 vs. Jacksonville (3-7)
