    I am playing on the playoff machine right now.

    It is still possible for us to get that number 1 seed

    Basicly we would need to win our last 2 games of course. Beat Indy and Tennesse.

    We would also need Baltimore to lose to San Diago tonight, New England to lose to Denver today, and Pittsburgh to lose to San Fran tommorrow.

    This is all very possible to happen seeming that all three teams are on the road.

    Because of our confrence win percentage, we will get the tie breaker. So if all three of those teams lose THIS WEEK, and we win our next TWO games, The Houston Texans will enter the playoffs as the number one seed!

    This loss is going to suck extra hard if the Patriots and Ravens both lose today

    Wouldn't it help if the Steelers won? I ask because that would put them ahead in winning their division right?

    We lost to an NFC opponet, the Pats would lose to an AFC opponet. That helps.

    I really don't think that is what the Texans are thinking

    I agree but at the same time it keeps us right in the middle of it.

    Weird.

    My point was if we all finish with the same record i believe we would only get the #3 seed, and being a game ahead we would control whether we get the top seed or not

    Edit: As Thorn pointed out we lost to a NFC team, if the Patriots lose i think we would have a tie breaker due to a better conference record if we win our last 2 games.

    Which wouldnt be ALL bad.

    Probably get Steelers at home, then go to NE (who cant stop my dead granny from running the ball) then come home for the Denver tebows.

    It would help if you wanted the texans to settle for the 2 seed. Basicly if Pittsburgh wins tonight, they will most likely win out since they play the rams and the browns. Then they will own the number one seed with the best record.

    If pitt loses, the the seeding will look like this (pending the texans win our last 2 games)

    1. Houston
    2. Baltimore
    3. New England
    4. Denver
    5. Pittsburgh
    6. New York Jets

    Actually the 6 seed right now is looking more like Oakland. The Jets are down 21-0

    Pittsburgh will probably win out.

    SF
    StLouis
    Cleveland

    They'll finish 13-3 at best, we'll finish 12-4

    If Ben is playing, they'll win. If Ben is not playing, they'll most likely win. If the Steelers are playing the 49ers, they'll probably win.

    I'm not sure how anyone can say our next 2 games are W's after watching today's game. Let's just hope we don't go into the playoffs on a losing streak. Yates came down to Earth today
