The Houston Texans 2011 Super Bowl odds were at a very long 25/1.  This is a team that beat last year’s Super Bowl losers the Indianapolis Colts.  Is this a case of the Super Bowl curse setting in or are the Texans this year definitely for real?

It’s never too early to start thinking about Super Bowl odds, especially when the payout would be so lucrative shouldthe Texans pull it off.   This perennial .500 regular season finisher, which managed their first winning season last year at 9-7, certainly looked like Super Bowl contenders on Sunday against the Colts.

Arian Foster, who spent most of last season on the practice squad, ran for a team record 231 yards and scored three touchdowns to carry the Texans to a 34-24 victory over the defending AFC champions on Sunday.

"Coming into the league, you don't know what to expect, especially if you are not heralded and there's not a lot of publicity," Foster said. "You see guys like Andre Johnson and Matt Schaub and the way they carry themselves, and you try to mimic it and make your own personality. I feel privileged to be here."

Foster had the NFL's second-best opening weekend rushing performance since 1933.

“Needless to say, there is reason to be optimistic about the Houston Texans chances this season,” commented Don Shapiro of Gambling911.com. 

The Texans will face the Redskins on the road in Week 2.  They have been made the -3 road favorite.
