Then, the AFCC will be in Houston and NE will win. Why? Because everything that worked for the Texans on MNF will be on film and wont be as successful in round 2. NE will have answers. Also, NE wont be favored to win.
Does it work both ways for you? What if the Pats win on Monday? Will that mean that the Texans will win in the playoffs since we will have them on film and have answers in addition to not being favored?
I'm with you in a sense on HFA... I don't think it's meaningless but more so believe that it is any given Sunday for everybody... especially in the playoffs. It's for all the marbles. That being said... I'd love to have homefield just because I will be able to go.
