Texans not concerned with playoff picture

The Houston Texans have won four in a row and are sitting in a good spot with respect to the AFC Wild Card race and are in position to overtake division rival Indianapolis to contend for the AFC South title. But Texans head coach Bill O’Brien said they have only one focus and it’s not the playoff race. It’s the Bills.

“The playoffs don’t start today,” said O’Brien. “The playoffs start in six weeks. I mean, we’re not even – these guys, I believe that they’re very focused. When they come into work on Wednesday, I would say that the majority of them will already have studied the first and second down Buffalo offense, defense, and then if they’re a core special teams guy for us, they will have already watched film on Buffalo’s special teams. Our guys are focused. That’s the way it has to be. Playoffs, this, that, the other, I mean, there’s nothing that we can do about that now other than focusing on Buffalo.”

Some Houston media have openly wondered if the Texans are looking ahead to their Week 14 matchup with the New England Patriots, and overlook the Bills. O’Brien said nothing could be further from the truth.
