Default AccuScore likes the Texans

I was reading this article and after this weekend our likelyhood of making the playoffs jumped by 20% according to Accuscore. Also the article shows all the teams and there percentage for making the playoffs.

Quote:
By beating Oakland, Houston improved its playoff chances by more than 20 percentage points, but its victory was not the driving force behind this improvement. The losses by Indianapolis (now 0-2 in the AFC South) and the home loss by Tennessee, which cost those teams a combined 25.4 percentage points, were the reason why Houston jumped up. The Texans are now in a virtual tie with Indianapolis for the forecasted division title thanks to their Week 1 win over Indianapolis. Jacksonville beat Indianapolis but it only helped them improve 3.8 percentage points. This is a significant percentage increase from 6.5 percent but not a significant overall bump.

IIRC, prior to the season beginning, Accuscore had us finishing 3rd or 4th in the division and only winning 6-7 games with no shot at getting to the playoffs.

I don't place much stock in computer simulations.

I really like them and they are 37-25 so far this year which is far more right than wrong.

Also if you go to espn picks and click on the Accuscore box each week it will give you the percentage chance of winning for your team, but you have to wait till it makes a pick which is usually on thursdays.
