Default The Houston Texans are the best team in the AFC

Would still feel better had we put up a better fight against an NFC team last week, if only we could play an AFC opponent in the superbowl.

Haha! So true. Look at mediocrity in the AFC today. It's almost like all .500 teams.

But I think the Packer game was just your classic trap game. Texans were undefeated and looking past the Pack to the game against the Ravens. The result was a spanking. No big deal in the grand scheme of things.

Yep, and the Patriots aren't looking elite right now.

They are now the team that scares me the most because of Brady.

Nah, it does matter. Every little bit helps and i'm pretty sure everyone in the Texans organization will tell you they rather play in Reliant come playoff time.

Yes it does. Balitmore has won 22 of their last 23 home games. 8-0 last year, 4-0 already this year. Home-field advantage will be huge for the Texans when the playoffs roll around.

If you were paying close attention, the Ratbirds were playing really lousy defense the last few games...plus they lose multiple quality starters.

Texans are a good team, but not because they beat the Ratbirds.

Party-pooper.

Ravens are second best in the AFC according to their record. I agree that we're likely to see a better matchup with the Patriots.

yeah, but the AFC is really awful right now. I think the only two non .500 or worse teams played in Houston today. I'm excited about us having a good team. I just don't think the Ravens are that good in their current configuration.

That said, it feels good to be king of the losers after a decade of struggling to be relevant.

What is really exciting to me is what I'm seeing from the coaching staff. Did anyone else notice the drive at the end of the half when we were up 26-3... I think there were 11 passes and no rushes (not even a play action, I don't think). I happen to believe in running the ball. However, it seems a clear response to the realization that this team will need to be able to succeed in passing situations when it matters against good teams. They are preparing the team for a serious championship run, understanding they need to continue to work on their weaknesses, even if they can hide them against all these lesser foes.

Right. We've seen the Texans lay down for so many teams over the years, it's nice to have a few of them lay down for the Texans.

So what if it is?

Past matchups have absolutely nothing to do with future ones unless the team lets it become a mental block.

Look at recent history:

2007 - Giants lose both regular season games to the Cowboys, lose at home to the Packers, and lose at home to the Patriots. In the playoffs they beat GB and Dallas on the road and NE in the Super Bowl

2010 - Green Bay lost to Atlanta and Chicago in the regular season.
They beat both of them in the playoffs (on the road).

2011 - Giants lost to SF on the road and Green Bay at home in the regular season and then beat them both on the road in the playoffs.

We could lose again, but we could easily beat them. There isn't a team in the NFL that the Texans can't beat. They were flat and didn't play with the same level of intensity that Green Bay did. Maybe under the bright lights on the biggest stage in the world they could once again look lost, but I would like our chances in a rematch.

We played well. There's no question about that. I don't think the Ravens at the end of the season will have the 2nd best record in the AFC. That being said, we still beat a very good team and likely a playoff bound team. It's important that they bounced back from a horrific loss, and took care of business. They need to get healed up and come out swinging after the bye.
