Re: Chances the Texans get the #1 seed
We got Denver and Baltimore, and they got Cleveland and KC - but that's a big deal, in my eyes. We played two playoff teams and beat them. They play two bottom feeder teams and barely beat Cleveland 17-13, with KC yet to go. The only thing they have going for them is that victory against the Packers.
They lost the the Bears - playoff team (well... wild card, maybe?) and the Jags (no excuse) and the Jets (no excuse). They got blown out by the Pats, but I'll reserve judgment until we play them.
So where we for the most part beat the playoff teams, they didn't. The other teams? Cupcakes. Let's face it, our schedule, aside from Denver, Baltimore, GB, the Bears, NE and perhaps the Lions, is full of weaker, lower end teams. We won the games that counted (with NE still to go) and they didn't. Luck is good enough to beat the cupcakes, but he's still yet to prove himself against the big boys. One game against GB isn't enough to warrant a full worshipping of Luck.
