We need them to lose one more each OR, beat Pat and win one more
Yeah, if we win our next 2 we'll clinch because of head to head and conference record.

That would be great clinching home field throughout on Dec 16th against the Colts.

Default Re: Chances the Texans get the #1 seed

My prediction:

New England has Houston, San Fran, @ Jacksonville, Miami. They win out and go 13-3.

Denver has @ Oakland, @ Baltimore, Cleveland Kansas City. They lose at Baltimore and go 12-4.

Baltimore has @ Washington, Denver, New York Giants, @ Cincincinti. They should win out and be 13-3.

Houston loses @ New England then wins out going 14-2 and gets home field advantage.

Default Re: Chances the Texans get the #1 seed

Since Baltimore lost, that changes things and makes things easier for us to at least get a bye.

Still want the #1 seed though. This is going to be the longest week ever.....

Default Re: Chances the Texans get the #1 seed

I don't know why, but I don't feel great going in with a record of 14-2.

I just feel like we would be the team to lose in the playoffs.

This season is just getting to the point,, where you don't know if this is real. I simply cannot believe what this team has done.

Getting the Lombardi would be the greatest. I would cry tears of joy. Joy I tell ya!

Why should we pray for Denver to lose? We should be actively rooting for Denver and New England to pass up Baltimore so we can avoid playing both Manning AND Brady in the playoffs.

Bold comments is exactly I am hoping for. Let our starters rest and heal so that they will be fresh and ready for the playoffs with home field advantage! Just win at NE and Indy games and will be good.

Go Texans!!!

For Denver to pass us up, all of this needs to happen:

Baltimore lose again.
New England win out.
Denver win out.
Houston lose to New England and at least once to Indy.

that's a lot to happen... Expecting an 11-1 team to fall apart at the end of the season while two teams with three losses to finish the season with 10 - 11 game winning streaks.

... I do agree that New England and Denver are the teams to avoid in the playoffs, though. And, it would be nice if the scenario works out for us. Still, there are too many variables to know what to root for.

Anybody who is comparing this years Colts to the 2011 version (before Luck), isn't paying attention. The last 2 weeks Luck has played like a young John Elway. I don't see us winning in Reliant in our first meeting and then going up to Indy just 2 weeks later and winning again. I don't think it's gonna happen. So in that scenario we are not the top seed, NE will be.

Anybody confusing the 2012 Colts to the 2010 Colts has got a little Luck juice on his chin.

He ain't Elway. He ain't Manning. He ain't Stafford. He won't win at Reliant & if he wins in Indy, it's because we let him.

The Colts are good, but they ain't as good as the Texans. Until that team is built up some more, the Texans own the division.

And yes, I've seen Luck play, and not everything good that happens to that team comes directly from his skill set. The Colts have gone from horrible to above average in one year. But the Texans are one of the best teams in the NFL right now, and are just a flat out better team. For this year.

Make no mistake about it, for now we can take the Colts at home and at their place. But Luck with good coaching is going to grow into a very long lasting pain in our sides for the next decade and a half.
