How can we lose two spots after blowing out a team?

"25 (23) Texans 3-4-0 Give the Texans credit. They might have played softies, but three wins in a row are three wins in a row. Especially after four losses in a row. (PK) "

CBS has them staying the same...

22 Texans · Trends 22
They've won three consecutive games and it's in large part because Matt Schaub has played exceptionally well the past three weeks. Are the playoffs possible?

What I don't understand about power rankings is that, like in the case of this one, the Texans are one spot under the Dolphins... we both have the same record - yet we've had a MUCH tougher schedule AND we beat the Dolphins straight up - so why not flip flop them in the rankings? It's right there in front of your eyes!

Yeah I was thinking the same.

Agreed that we should be above the Fins simply based on head to head and the same record, but how do you figure our schedule is at all tougher than theirs, much less MUCH tougher?

I would rank the Texans around the same area that they have them ranked. Where would you guys rank them? I would rank it like this:

1. Titans
2. Giants
3. Panthers
4. Steelers
5. Redskins
6. Bills
7. Patriots
8. Packers
9. Cowboys
10. Bucs
11. Eagles
12. Bears
13. Broncos
14. Cardinals
15. Ravens
16. Falcons
17. Saints
18. Jets
19. Jags
20. Colts
21. Vikings
22. Texans
23. Chargers
24. Browns
25. Dolphins
26. Rams
27. 49ers
28. Raiders
29. Seahawks
30. Chiefs
31. Lions
32. Bengals

You're absolutely right - I was concentrating on the first few games instead of the last few. The schedules are actually pretty even. Thanks for bringing that to light.

I'd put them around 23 or 24 for the simple fact that they've shown no sign of being able to win on the road. The Jax game was close, but our defense folded like a cheap uh... like a cheap thing.

All we have to do to get this out of the way is go up to Minnesota and beat the Vikings. The rest will take care of itself.
