Bill O'Brien wants more than an AFC South Championship hat. He wants playoff wins.
With a 30-6 victory over Jacksonville, the Texans earned their third AFC South title in franchise history and first in the O'Brien era of coaching.
"Congratulations on this hat," O'Brien said in his post-game locker room speech. "But there's more to it than this hat. There's more to it. It's a new season."
After starting off the year 2-5, the Texans finished their final stretch of the 2015 season with a 7-2 record. O'Brien credited season's turnaround on the team's perseverance and hard work.
"We got to really take advantage of the momentum that we have," O'Brien said. "We got to put extra time in because there's more to it than this hat. Congratulations on this hat but let's keep getting some hats."
O'Brien not only received a hat after the win, he was also awarded the game ball from Texans founder, chairman, and CEO Bob McNair.
The Texans will host the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Wild Card game.
