The Houston Texans are the favorites to be the subject of the upcoming edition of HBO’s “Hard Knocks,” according to a report.

The Houston Chronicle’s John McClain reported that the Texans were one of the finalists for the show along with the Redskins and Bills. A separate report said the Redskins do not want to be on the show and are not one of the finalists. The Bills also reportedly do not want to be on the show, which leaves the Texans as the leader, something that was reported by Tania Ganguli.

If the Texans end up on the show, J.J. Watt will no doubt provide plenty of entertainment. Jadeveon Clowney’s recovery from knee surgery as well as the quarterback battle would likely serve as storylines.
