HOUSTON (AP) - The Houston Texans advanced to the divisional round of the playoffs the last two seasons.
That simply won't do this year. The Texans are aiming much higher this season and anything less than reaching the Super Bowl will be a disappointment for a team loaded on both sides of the ball.
Linebacker Brian Cushing says the Super Bowl is their ultimate goal, but they know there's a ton of work to do.
The return of Cushing should be a boost to a defense that added safety Ed Reed and features 2012 defensive player of the year J.J. Watt. The unit was at its best early last season before Cushing tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in Week 5 and missed the rest of the year.
