And they improved their secondary.

That Broncos team is starting to scare me, tbh.

I said in a thread in the NFL section that this week three matchup could be a preview of the AFC title game ....

I don't think the rankings are based on how balanced, a team is, but on their ability to win games. When looking at a team like NE (I don't really have anything to say about Pittsburgh) chances are they are going to score 30 points, week in week out. How many other teams are going to be able to hang with that?

Even looking at the Texans, are you saying you penciled NewEngland as a win? Will we be able to stop them from scoring 30? 27? 24? How many points do you think we'll be able to score? We averaged 26 ppg with Schaub last year. But you don't get into a shootout with a gunslinger. We'll have to stay on the field, control the clock & minimize their opportunities. We might not get to 20 points.

They also have the Texans with the highest percentage of win probability for the coming week against the Jaq's with 90.7%.

The next highest probability is New England facing Arizona with a 69.6% win probability.


That seems like a really big gap ....

It's interesting to say the least. New England & Green Bay are there at the top as web but it shows them closer to 30 points per game for and we averaged 26 ppg. However, their points against is higher by 5 points.
