I was thinking it would be really difficult to beat the Pats twice, so now maybe if we meet them in the post season we'll have a better shot.

Would be odd to say since the Ravens playoff game was bigger.

The best thing though is what you said. This wasn't win or go home, not yet. The team lives to fight another day. All I know is if they show up and get whooped by the Patriots again? I'll be looking at the coach.
I believe they said it was the biggest regular season game ever.

That's one way to look at things.

IMO, the best shot the Texans have to make the SB is hope for a 1994 Denver Nuggets over Seattle Supersonics type upset involving the Patriots in the 2nd round. Rockets fans will know what I am talking about.

If we take care of business and still secure home field, it might be better that we lost this game. A win would have knocked NE to the 4 seed (they lose the tiebreaker to Baltimore) where they would likely be our divisional-round opponent. If we still get the top seed, I'd much rather have Denver and NE get the next two seeds.

The way we play defense (lots of blitzing and man coverage) leaves us vulnerable to elite QBs. Even if we have home field, asking this current defense to beat Manning and Brady in consecutive weeks may be a bit much. Better to have the brackets aligned so that they play each other for the right to play us.

That's about all I can come up with from a "positives" perspective. That was a pretty thorough whipping.

Honestly, if we get end up getting the number #2 seed... Does anyone truly think we can go back up to NE and win that game?
