Maybe they go in reverse alphbetical order?
Maybe because we were the last team to lose a game?
Maybe because we have so many injured players?

It's based on the winning streaks... Sometimes I think we (Texan fans) may be a little hypersensitive when it comes to national coverage. We suffer from the middle-child syndrome stuck between those dang Cowboys and the cute Luv 'ya Blue Oilers.

It has to be either points allowed or last to lose a game. It's okay though. We will be looking down in a couple of weeks.:texflag:

This guy is right.

NFL.com is not taking a shot at the Texans.

sirs, i believe you both to be wrong. it does it by the streak. look at the afc north.. the browns and bengals, both 1 - 2.

dalemurphy wins.

That's because the Browns hold the tiebreaker based on beating the Bengals.

If two or more clubs in the same division finish with identical records, the following steps will be taken until a champion is determined.

Two Clubs 1. Head-to-head (games between the clubs). 2. Best won-lost percentage in games played within the division. 3. Best won-lost percentage in common games. 4. Best won-lost- percentage in games played within the conference. 5. Strength of victory. 6. Strength of schedule. 7. Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed. 8. Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed. 9. Best net points in common games. 10. Best net points in all games. 11. Best net touchdowns in all games.

Three or More Clubs (Note: If two clubs remain tied after third or other clubs are eliminated during any step, tiebreaker reverts to step 1 of the two-club format).

1. Head-to-head 2. Best won-lost percentage in games played within the division. 3. Best won-lost percentage in common games. 4. Best won-lost percentage in games played within the conference. 5. Strength of victory. 6. Strength of schedule. 7. Best combined ranking among conference teams in points scored and points allowed. 8. Best combined ranking among all teams in points scored and points allowed. 9. Best net points in common games. 10. Best net points in all games. 11. Best net touchdowns in all games.

They have a .500 record in the division. We have a .000 record in the division. It's not that we're just listed last in the division - we actually are tied for last place in the division right now.

It's weird how that worked out - Sunday we were playing for outright first place - now we're actually tied for last place. LOL.

Won't stay that way long though. I really think this team's gonna take care of business against the next two opponents, and I don't see Jax and Ten going undefeated in that stretch.

EDIT - oops, I edited the above to include Jacksonville as tied with us in last place. Meh, what the hell do I know, heh.

I don't like to see us as last.

We are tied for 2nd.

Tiebreakers only count at the end of the season. We're tied for second (and tied for last).

They should make it based on points for.

No. They should arrange them in the correct order. That order determined by the official tiebreaker rules. I've never understood why they don't do it. I think they are either cheap or lazy. I'm sure a program could be written to automatically determine the order based on their tiebreaker rules, except of course for the coin flip part. Before the season starts it should remain as it has been, alphabetical order.

I just looked at NFL.com and we are no longer last in the division. The Jaguars are last, as they should be under Step 5 of the 2 team within a division tiebreaker rules. Step is Strength of Victory, which I believe is the combined record of the opponents you have beaten. In this case, the Texans' Strength of Victory is 3-3 while the Jaguars is 2-4.
