How does that beat out a head-to-head loss to Baltimore?

Wow, I hate to complain, but that's ridiculous.

It doesn't beat out the head to head loss to Baltimore. Something is amiss here.......

In a tie, head to head record is the 1st thing they go to, so Baltimore is above us.

If we somehow really get the #1 seed, they should just give us a freaking bye to the Superbowl, LOL.

If it's a three way tie, the head to head only comes into play if all three teams have played each other - otherwise, you go to the next tie-breaker.

That is true in a two-way tie. We're looking at a three-way tie since New England is also 8-3. In the case of a three-way tie, conference record is the first tie-breaker.

Actual W-L against common opponents win out but there is a minimum of 4 common opponents. Since we do not have 4 common teams among the three of us, it goes to conference record.

OK, so now I understand. Not that it makes any real difference five games from now though. But, for the time being, I guess it's mentally cool to be #1.

I think there are different rules for a 3 way tie than 2 way tie. Regardless, there's still 5 games left.

Yes. Just to confirm. A two way tie breaker includes head to head. 3 or more and you can't do head to head.

http://www.nfl.com/standings/tiebreakingprocedures

It is pretty confusing but it makes sense. What if we had lost to balt and beat NE and then NE had beat Balt?

I care. Nothing I want less than Home field advantage. Granted, there are big concerns regarding our future, with the current QB situation, but certainly don't/won't dismiss the potential for winning the Conference.

Right now Barry Warner is talking about "how we just need to win 2 more games" almost like he's not sure it can be done, but confident we can against Indy and Carolina. CRAPOLA... we need to win 5 games. It starts with Atlanta. Atlanta is the one team that if Houston can beat in the next 5, makes the others all win-able. If Atlanta loses, EVERYONE will be caring about seeding. Thinking more on it, I understand the "I just want to get in" aspect given the team's current circumstances. There's a golf phrase I like when my buds are looking to opt out of a golf round based on forecast: Make it rain you out, don't let it scare you out. I've played more rounds than I've been rained out, based on that. Same thing here. Granted the sky is gray, but last I checked the Texans are on their biggest win streak of the franchise history, despite LOTS of major issues. THIS team is finding a way to overcome. TJ NEEDS a 1st round bye.

Default Re: #1 Seed in the AFC

Nice to know we are #1 after week 12. I am really concerned about Atlanta game as their D is #2 against run and we got 3rd string QB. Their D against pass is #25 but again, inexperience QB on our side makes a little difficult to take an advantage of the situation. Hope, Kubiak can come up with winning plan that Yates be able to handle.

Go Texans!!!

From my understanding - If it were simply the Texans and Ravens tied for the best record the head to head would be in play but since its multiple teams tied conference record comes into play instead.

Agreed. 5 weeks out & we've got an opportunity to be the #1 seed in the AFC. To me, that's what I'm getting my team prepared for.

Shoot for the stars, hit the moon. If the team is just trying to get in.... we might miss.
