THIS is not a divisional game. THIS is not a must-win game. Of all the the teams that could afford to lose a game this week it's the Texans and Falcons. With a lose those two teams still control their own destiny.
Well let's see. Andre has put more into this club than anybody in the entire world, McNair included, & he says this is the most important game in Texans history.

You bought a T-shirt with Andre's name on it & you say it's just another game.

Good teams lose to other good teams all the time. It's how they respond against each other in the playoffs that matters.
I can see how you got to that conclusion, however, there are other possibilities.

And I don't buy into the crap about winning this game to gain confidence. N.E. blew out the Jets two years ago and lost to them in the playoffs. Confidence gain against beating another team in the regular season means absolutley nothing!
No, they know it's more than "just another game" They think it should mean more to them than to us, because it gets harder for them to accomplish their goal if they lose. We can still be the 1 seed if we lose & it would be easy by comparison.

It's not about "confidence" it's about stacking the odds in your favor.

If anything, I rather have them lose tonight. Because I think this team is more dangerous playing angry and with a chip on their shoulder than a false sense of confidence.

But yes, it would feel mighty damn fine if we win!
Winning this game would not be considered "nonsense" to any team with Super Bowl aspirations.
