NFL would love a Texans/Packers super bowl
Who is the "NFL"? The NFL is 31 owners + the Packers board of directors. The commissioner is their voice. I'm sure each owner wants to see their own team in the Superbowl. The media, on the other hand, would want big market, big name teams there that would generate the highest ratings possible, Pit/Giants for example. The Packers, too, but they're an anomaly (it's like Conroe having an NFL team).

As to the next year's schedule, I think it may call for a trip to Pit, considering my wife is a Steelers fan...

I'd risk it. The reward is just too great. Yeah there's a chance the Texans could lose, but imagine if we didn't? How sweet it would be to be able to rub it Cowboys fans faces!!!

Home: Indy, Jacksonville, Tennesse, Green Bay, Minnesota, Miami, Buffalo, Denver

Away: Indy, Jacksonville, Tennesse, Chicago, Detroit, New England, New York, Baltimore

Of course divisional opponets are a no brainer.

Next year the AFC south matches up with the AFC east. Since we played pats and jets at home last time the two divisions met, we will go on the road for them. Vice versa for the Bills and Dolphins.

Baltimore and Denver are assuming they win their division (assuming the texans win the division as well) Of course, since we already play two divisions within our conference, the two final spots on the schedule are filled by teams from the two division we dont face within our conference. These teams are based on where they have placed in their division or common finish. Last time we played Baltimore based on common finish was last season at reliant so since next year will be common finish we will have to travel back to baltimore for another match up. We have never played Denver based on common finish, so I am assuming Denver will be a home game for us.

Finally that brings me to the confrence match up. Next year as it is already known, The AFC south is facing the NFC north. Since we played green bay and minnesota away, we will play them at home next season.

That brings me to this point.

IF the texans actually make it to the super bowl, and assuming they face the packers, the NFL would have a rare oppertunity. (at least something I havent really seen) The NFL would actually get to have a super bowl rematch the very next year. Some one already mentioned this earlier that if they did make it the NFL would probably have a Texans Packers thursday night kick off.

That being said, even though they aren't supposed to pick a side, I feel like behind closed doors at the NFL offices, they are really wanting the texans to get to the playoffs, and then the texans and packers meet in the super bowl so they can have this huge event the very next year.

That is just my idea though. Hope you guys enjoyed my schedule. I hope I am right on it. As I was about to post this my friend messeged me and said he would laugh if none of this was right because we got moved to the CFL after this season lol.
I guess I don't understand the difference between "where you place in the division" and "common finish". You play the teams that finish the same place in their division as you finished in your division. I guess that is "common finish".

Where you played a particular team the last time you had a "common finish" is not relevant to where you play this time. (You would wind up with some team having played both teams on the road (in different years) so this year they get 9 home games? No.) It switches each time you play a division. In 2012 the South plays the East. In 2009 (last time the South played the East) the South teams hosted the West division common finishers (Den @ Ind, Oak @ Hou, SD @ Possum Holler, KC @ Tarpville) and travelled to the North teams (Hou @ Cin, etc.) It does matter where we played Baltimore last - we played the North on the road.

Therefore, in 2012 the AFC South hosts the North teams and travels to the West teams. So Baltimore or Pittsburgh here, on the road to Denver or Oakland.

And the "NFL" would prefer New England, the Jets, or Pittsburgh to be the AFC representative in the Super Bowl. At best we would be in the next cut with Baltimore, Denver, and Oakland - or maybe behind all three. But still ahead of Jacksonville!

Ah very good. I was only basing this off of texans past schedules, but that makes sense how they put it up. However upon doing my research, I found that last season the north traveled to the south but then as you mentioned the last time we played the west, they visited the south. So....I guess they will have to figure it out.
