..mean nothing, but it's nice to see us finally get a little respect. Imagine where we'll be at if we beat #10 Cleveland!
________________________________________________
10. Houston (+8) 11/26 Two weeks into the season, Matt Schaub and Andre Johnson were the best 1-2 combo in the NFL. Better than Brady-Moss, better than Romo-Owens. Injuries sidelined the pair's quest towards greatness, but both were healthy vs. the Saints. They connected on six completions for 120 yards and a touchdown in Houston's 23-10 win over New Orleans. Mario Williams had arguably his best game of the year in a contest hyped as a matchup between him and Reggie Bush, sacking Drew Brees once, forcing a fumble and recording six tackles. Don't sleep on Houston. Finally healthy, they can be a team to be reckoned with down the stretch.

That's too high IMO, but nice comments.

The only problem is the last sentence. Finally healthy? Ever heard of Drob for starters?

They're looking at QB-WR combos only I think.

At least that's my guess

Nice article, but our defense will have to continue to get better. I'm still nervous about our secondary.

That article has us 15th.

CBS has us 19th:
"This 5-5 team is still alive in the playoff hunt. Getting Andre Johnson back really livens up the offense. They'll need it this week to try and keep up with the Browns."

I think one's a little high and the other a touch low. Split the difference.
