AJ's guide
Jets lost so I didn't quote it

it's always fun to watch Rex eat his words.




Cincinnati (6-3) over Baltimore (6-3) - This one is almost a tossup from the Texans perspective since both teams have identical records and one of them will be in a tie with the Texans at the end of the weekend. For me it boils down to who is the better matchup for the Texans in the playoffs. And if we could get Baltimore out of there somehow (I know - fat chance) that would be better for the Texans. In other words, I'd rather see Pittsburgh and Cincinnati coming out of the North than Pittsburgh and Baltimore. The last place I want to see the Texans go in January is Baltimore. Well, actually I'd be delighted that they got the opportunity but you know what I mean.

Cleveland (3-6) over Jacksonville (3-6) - Lets take some more wind out of the sails of our division rival, shall we? When the Texans resume play in a week, a 4-6 Jags team sniffing .500 would be a lot more motivated than a 3-7 Jags team that just got beat by the Browns. I just don't think the Browns have enough offense to overcome the Jags defense.

Miami (2-7) over Buffalo (5-4) - I'm basing this pick solely on knocking down the AFC team with the better record. If the Bills lose this one they're playoff chances will decrease dramatically and would put their division rival the Jets a full game and a tiebreaker ahead of them in the wildcard race given the Jets beat Denver tonight. If you can't stand the Jets, root for Buffalo.

Minnesota (2-7) over Oakland (5-4) - NFC over AFC rule. An Oakland loss would turn the AFCW into mediocrity-chaos as the other three teams are currently 4-5.

Atlanta (5-4) over Tennessee (5-4) - If there's a game to follow this weekend it's this one. It goes without saying that a Titans loss would greatly benefit the Texans. But I said it anyway. The Falcons are at home and need a win to keep pace with New Orleans.

Kansas City (4-5) over New England (6-3) - A loss by the Patriots would keep them a full game behind the Texans in the AFC standings. I don't see it happening but you never know, given the recent history between these teams.

The Texans really needed a soft opponent like the bye week ..... I predict a Texans win over the bye , AJ back next week with Lienart game ready.

The thing about Bye is they are the classic one dimensional team. They have a shutdown Defense and have given up 0 points all year. Problem for them is their offense can't move the ball.

I predict a 0-0 draw.

Undrafted and about proving himself ,no chip on his shoulder, just trying to be the best in the league

Indy looks bad...really bad, but Bye's offense is far worse. Bye's defense is built to prevent points, but cannot score themselves. If they could average just 3 points a game, they would be Superbowl champions.
