Default Chances the Texans get the #1 seed

I almost made this thread last week, however I didn't want to jinx the team and then everyone blame me for a historic collapse.

Now that they have clinched a spot, we can discuss this.

I've been playing on the old playoff machine over on ESPN.com

http://espn.go.com/nfl/playoffs/machine (For those who want to make their own scenario)

Now, we can lose to NE next week, and still get the #1 seed, as long as we beat Indy twice and the Vikings. That would put our record at 14-2.

Of course, if we beat NE next week, and then beat Indy the week after, we will clinch the #1 seed. Believe it or not, we could still go in as a WC team. Since Indy just won their game, if we were to beat NE and then lose our last three games, two of which are against Indy, we would finish with a record of 12-4. Indy would not only have the same record, but they would also have the tie-breaker over us.

If we beat NE and Minnesota, then we will clinch.

We can lose to NE, but still clinch a bye if we beat Indy once and meat Minnesota.

So for all of those thinking we would rest our players in the last week, doesn't look like that. Depending on how this Patriots game turns out, that last game would be very important for us.

What do y'all think our chances for the #1 seed are?

Indy is pesky. Minnesota could play a trap. and New England is always good this time of year.

These last 4 games could either put us in the drivers seat, or make us road warriors for the playoffs.

Default Re: Chances the Texans get the #1 seed

We could also end up with the 4th seed if we drop games to NE and a couple of those last 2 and end up playing...


Indy in the Wildcard round. We could play them 3 out of 4 weeks.

There really needs to be a better person(computer) in charge of scheduling. Division rivals shouldn't be playing each other twice in the final three weeks. At least one game should be earlier in the season.

I think we end up with the 1st. I think we win the first 2 over Min and Ind and then lose to Ind on the road after we've already clinched it.

In order for us to clinch under that scenario we would need to beat NE.

The best we can do with beating Indy and Minny, is getting a bye.

Default Re: Chances the Texans get the #1 seed

The Colts are the team I want to avoid most right now and they're the one that's filling up half of our remaining schedule. Anyone who thinks that those Colts games will be easy is fooling themselves. They're playing way high right now and they are believers.

This is going to be the roughest 4 game stretch of our season right here and it's for all the marbles as far as the post-season positioning is concerned.

I think Denver beats Baltimore, and SF beats New England, so we should be sitting pretty even if we go 2-2 down the stretch.

That's the scenario I think happens. Even if we lose to NE if they lose the next week to SF and Den beats Baltimore we would clinch the #1 seed with wins over Min and Ind.

The best NE could do would be 12-4 (with that loss to SF or us).

Baltimore could be 13-3 (if they lose to Den), but even if we lose to NE and the last game to Ind we have the tiebreaker.

Denver could finish 13-3 if they win out and we still have to lose 3 more times over the last 4 for them to get a seed above us.

The best thing to do is beat NE and everything is moot. We'd be up 2 over Baltimore with 3 to play. Up 4 on NE and Den with 3 to play. We basically clinch the #1 with a win against NE.

I can't believe Indy has done so well this year, before the season started I thought we would breeze through them but not anymore. Our last 4 games are all tough opponents

I don't think they'll be easy by any stretch. That's why I don't want it to come down to week 17 to decide things.

Luck is good, but this season makes me think that some point in the 2011 season, the Colts decided to cash it in and coast for draft position.

The only problem with that, is both of those games are at Baltimore.

Baltimore hasn't lost at home all season.

I have watched the colts play and i may have a different opinion here than most. I dont think they are very good and i dont think they match up very well with us. I think we beat them at home and i think that we will still be fighting for the #1 seed when we play them for the final game so i dont think they will be playing our back-ups. I see us going 3-1 in these last 4 games and knocking the colts out of the wild card.

After today they might have a wild card spot almost locked down. It depends on how Cin and Pit do today, but since they still play each other and there aren't a lot of viable options in the AFC still sniffing the playoffs.

If we can get a win next week, it should be easy crusin from there!

Just get a win over Minnesota, and we will be good.

These next 4 games will tell us what kind of team we have.
