I'd much rather have the Steelers beat the Ravens since the Texans have the head to head tie breaker Vs the Steelers but not against the Ravens.
I'm not buying that Cincy is a major concern. They have played 1 team with a winning record before Tenn today. Their defense hasn't seen an offense like the Texans nor have they played are real good defense except Jax and their offense suxs...

Texans will win that game

They are a mediocre team that cannot stop the run. NO had 190+ on the ground against them. They give up 123 yrds per game. They are gonna get a nice warm cup of smash mouth football come next week with Foster and Tate....

So I still don't get it. Forgive me for this aside, but if you're not a Texans fan by any means, then what exactly are you doing here? Did you state the purpose of you being ona Texans board in another thread and I might have missed it? Serious question.

They beat:

The Browns (5-11)
The Panthers (2-14) twice
The Bengals (4-12)
The Rams (7-9)
The Cardinals (5-11)
The Niners (6-10)
The Redskins (6-10)
The Seahawks (7-9)
The Saints (11-5) (The Saints were already in the Playoffs, I think.)

They went 2-4 in that tougher division and they didn't get any win against a team with a winning record except for the Saints.

So basically they did last year what we've been accused of this year (beating up weaker opponents) but it wasn't enough to get them into the playoffs.

I expected them to be stronger this season but it doesn't look like they're building on last years success.

Default Re: Forget winning the division, we should now be playing for a 1st round bye!

Houston would have been 9-7 or 10-6 too if it werent for (literally) a handul of plays that went the other way. Andre kicking the ball into the SD DB's hands, the fumble and subsequent Hail Mary against Jacksonville, 50 seconds against New York, etc.

6-10 was not nearly indicative of things last year. Awful, awful defense.

Praise Wade Phillips.

My only concern right now is hoping the Texans win aganst Tampa. I have been patient for 10 years now, I want to continue to enjoy seeing consistent quality football week-in week-out. the Texans do that all the "other" stuff will come.

As a Texans fan, I don't want to start thinking that far ahead. We've easily beaten 3 opponents we're supposed to. Tampa is our first real test against a good team since Oakland (well they were good at the time). Have to take it one game at a time.

I bet they just picked straws to see who wins the division but San Fran is making people take notice this year.
So, you're saying that Tampa was a 10 win team that was approximately the strength of a couple of 7 win teams? That helps your point how?

What you've basically said is that you don't give a lot of credit to those 10 wins, either. Which was TK's point that you disagreed with.

Yep. If the season ended today the Bengals and us would have a first round bye while New England would host Pittsburgh and Kansas City would host Baltimore. We would play the highest seeded team of the two winners.

Playoff race in the AFC is going to be intense. Who know who's going to win the AFC West and the Jets and Buffalo are going to be in the running for a wild card spot or division title.

I would be worried if they were beating up weaker opponents. But they aren't. They're winning, but even they couldn't tell you how they are doing it. It's "just happening"

We're beating up on weaker opponents.... & that's good. It's good to be the bully.
