Re: AFC Tie-breaker
I suspect this is what they were talking about...there is a plausible scenario where the Texans would lose the #1 overall seed AND a first round bye.
We lose to NE and the Colts in week 17 to finish 13-3. Baltimore wins out and finishes 14-2. New England wins out and finishes the season 13-3.
The Pats get that tiebreaker with us by virtue of their head-to-head win.
#1 seed Baltimore
#2 seed NE
#3 seed Houston hosting a wild card game.....
