Default Playoff Possible in Houston?

The playoffs don't seem as far off as they did a few weeks ago. Looking at the divisions right now if Houston can win most if not all of their last 6 games they have a real chance at getting a wild card. If Tennesee loses tonight and next week and Houston beats Cleveland next week that puts them in the run for wild card. From there on all they have to do is hold their position.

No more playoff threads. The following game is usually bad.

I disagree. The weakest of our last six opponents is Denver, and they are looking great right now. Personally I think we will win three of them (@Browns, @Titans, Jags), with a one game margin.

My original prediction was 9-7, and I think we have a chance at that. Playoffs? Not in the AFC.

Is Denver playing that good or is Titans just that bad?

Very possible Andrew and we can help ourselves out a lot with wins in Nashville and beating the Jags here.

Have you looked at the AFC standings lately. I think they have a 10-6 or maybe even a 9-7 team in there this year.

Well, let's assume Denver beats Tenn. and puts them at 6-4. If the order of playoff qualifications is correct:

Chance 1 => Texans go 9-7

1.1 HOU wins JAX, IND, TEN, CLE

1.2 TEN loses to (IND, CIN, SD) or 4 combined

1.3 CLE loses to (2 of CIN, BAL, ARI) or 3 combined

1.4 DEN loses to (SD, MIN, OAK or KC) or 3 combined

Chance 2 => Texans go 10-6

2.1 HOU wins IND, TEN, JAX, CLE, (TB or DEN)

2.2 TEN loses (IND or SD) or 3 combined

2.3 CLE loses any 2 (likely: CIN, BAL, ARI)

Chance 3 => Texans go 11-5

3.1 HOU wins IND, TEN, JAX, CLE, TB, DEN

3.2 TEN loses 1 AFC game or 2 total

3.3 CLE loses 1 game

One game out of the final Wild card. Titans 6-4, Cleveland 6-4. And we play both of them in the next two weeks.

Go Texans.

Does it matter if we get into the playoffs?

Because I want to just avoid the Patriots at all cost. I think i'll cry if we play them.

I'd rather make the playoffs and lose to the Pats 77-0 than not make it at all. Besides, if we get to play the Patriots that means we'll have won a playoff game since the Pats will have a first round bye!

True, but the Patriots will crush our team so bad I feel.

Maybe Belicheck would go easy on us, since Kubes was one of the few Coaches when asked about spygate who kept saying "No comment on that." or at least I hope. I remember last year we played the Pats...that was really really bad.

I'm with Guerilla on this one, the mods should close down any thread having to do with the Texans and playoffs at this point. Unless it is Yankee predicting the Texans have no chance to make the playoffs. His last prediction worked out so well.

I keep seeing "I want Andre back," "Andre will fix everything," etc.

When Andre is back, we're not going back to week 1 and 2 ball. We've had a LOT of problems develop since then (exactly what and why is a whole other thread). We've had OD over the middle, and Walter and Davis stepping up to stretch the field.

Yes, AJ is a top NFL wide receiver. Yes, I miss him.

No, having him back will not "fix" our current woes.

the Texans control their own fate. In addition to those, it seems like the last game of the season might be a big one too.

Default Re: Playoff Possible in Houston?

Well - it's possible. And the only way we'll play the Patriots is in the AFC Championship game. If we make it there - I'm with TexanSam - if we get blown out 77-0, at least we made it. And we won't have been the first team blown out by the Patriots this year. Of course as things stand now, we'd have to beat the Steelers, then the Colts before we get near the Patriots.

Go Texans!
