Neither of those teams is elite right now. At least no more elite than the Texans. I think we could beat any team in the NFL any week. We could also lose to any team. As could each of the "elite" teams.
There isn't a lot separating the best from most of the rest on any given week. A few breaks and fortunate calls makes a big difference. Most games in the NFL are decided by a few plays. Good teams make a few more than the bad teams.
If not for the refs giving the Packers a loss maybe they aren't playing with their backs against the wall against us. If not for a couple of stupid penalties by us in the loss to the Packers it's a closer game and things could have been different.
