    Yeah both extremes are annoying... but as a Houston fan, the overly optimistic seems to always bite us in the a$$

    Was it the Osweiler MVP thread?

    You must love the fact that CnD usually gets his injury predictions correct.

    Sure, there's a chance, just like there's a chance when you purchase a lotto ticket. but hey, if the Texans were to ever go on a 16 game winning streak, no better time for it than the present.

    The only team the Texans gained ground on was the Colts in their loss to the Jaguars. The Charges, Patriots and Chiefs all won. Only 4 more games to make up some kind of ground in this playoff race. The Texans need to stay the course. One game at a time. The only thing they can control is their own record. Hopefully, they can get some help from the other teams opposition in this race. The chance is still there.

    Man just get into the playoffs and stop worrying about who we will play or if we will have a bye ...etc. We as fans worry about this type of stuff too much. We can beat anyone of these team.

    Yes we can, but it'll be much easier to beat them at home. Besides. This is part of what makes a season like this so exciting. So why not? It's all part of the fun of this game and watching this team.

    Texans have a real shot at the #1 seed, first win out the last 4 games, then either NE has to lose a game or LAC has to win out as well and create a 3 way tie at 13-3 in which the Texans would have the tiebreaker for the three team tie.

    Most likely, they land at the 3 seed. Right now, that would match them up with the Ravens. I'll take the Texans in that match-up.

    I just hope the Ravens don't pass up the Steelers in that scenario

    How does that guarantee getting us ahead of KC?

    This makes sense because now KC are out of the picture, and since LAC, HOU and NE did not all play each other, the head-to-heads are ignored. That means we jump to conference record as the next tiebreaker, where HOU will have the best record.

    The Texans and NE are tied right now, and all it takes is for the Texans to win one more game in the last four than does NE. Then we'd have a 2nd seed for sure. The Patsies will have to cooperate with that of course.

    The Chargers & Steelers are two of the three most balanced teams in the league. Offensively may not be KC or LA, but our defense doesn't help us out against them.

    Chargers needs to beat @KC week 15 and Steelers at home need to beat Pats....then we are in for a Bye.....if we win all ours.
    Chargers can also be #1 seed if this happens.

    |No, if the Texans win out and the Chiefs and Pats lose one the Texans are the #1 seed. No way can the Chargers be #1 iin that scenario

    Jets and Eagles will be the hardest games remaining. On the road at outside Northern stadiums in December. Talk about character building. If this team shows they can play in cold weather I'll probably say they can win the Lombardi trophy THIS YEAR. I can't believe I'm even typing that but this team continues to check boxes as the season progresses. Impressive wins mixed in with luck? That's what championship runs are made of.
