ESPN quickly ditches yellow Monday Night Football graphic everyone hates”

The Texans won the AFC South last season, but head into this new campaign with low expectations after losing a number of high profile stars in free agency.

The Texans lost on the road to the Green Bay Packers and the Dallas Cowboys and at home to the Los Angeles Rams. In addition, Hartstein is 22-11 in his last 33 picks involving the Saints.
