I don't know, just throwing that out there.

Another thing, one thing I think I've noticed about these guys since the Detroit game, is these guys play to win. I don't know if it's something external, like homefield & what not, it's something inside...... you can definitely see that in Jj Watt.
A meaningless game in week 17 is not worth the chance of having a star injured. And T J, Tate, and Posey can still play to win.

Chances are everyone will play week 17. The only exception would be Jjo, depending on how he feels but he seems like the kinda guy who would rather play than stretch on the sidelines.

Most likely they won't play the whole game. But I think our depth is enough to make a good game out of it. Heck, most of them have been playing all year anyway.

this.

i would play our starters for the first half. we're not traditionally good after a bye if i remember correctly, and i would hate to see us come out rusty and overhyped because our starters havent seen the field in essentially 3 weeks. sure there's risk of injury, but kubiak would certainly call a safe, familiar game and one that can at least keep our starters active and moving forward.

Default Re: One more win = AFC #1 Seed

So as has been pointed out, if we win, we clinch the #1 seed, but I believe it's also true that if Indy wins this weekend @ KC and Cincy loses @ Pittsburgh, the Colts are locked into the #5 seed, and would also have nothing to play for.

Would this create a tear in the space time continuum? Will the two teams simply play checkers or gin rummy to decide the winner? Or are we just assuming that the real reason the world will end on Friday is to prevent this exact scenario from ever taking place.

If the HFA is clinched on Sunday, whatever Kubes and Co. decide to do week 17 will be considered correct if they win in the divisional round, and wrong if they lose. Personally, I'll be pretty much happy if we're still having this discussion next week as opposed to collectively puckering about having to win in Indy.

I know that many fans "feel" the run defense is not doing well, but sometimes we need the facts to balance the feelings:

The Texans defense is #5 in run defense, and only 2.2 yards a game from being #2. They have faced three Top 10 rushing offenses, and half of their opponents have been in the top half of the league. They've only faced one Bottom 10 rushing team this season.

AP is going to get his. He is an amazing running back. But you have to realize that they don't pound him all game long. In fact, he has carried the ball 18 times or less in SEVEN games. And in two others only 21. That is only FIVE games where they kept handing him the rock.

Why, because you see all of these 40, 50, 60, 80 yard runs. But they tend to happen in the middle of the field, because he only has 11 TD's all season.

The formula is simple: Don't let him go for 75 yards multiple times in the game.

The longest run the Texans defense has given up all season? 28 yards.

I worry more about Ponder going Henne- er, Brady on our secondary.
