    When will we know if or what games we will be playing for sure here at home during the playoffs. I know we got 2 sets of playoff tickets but they are not 100% playing here yet are they?

    It's going to depend on the game Sunday. Win and every playoff game the Texans are in will be at home. Lose and at least one at home.

    If we lose this Sunday, we'll be 3rd seed, so we'll get the 6th seed, which is the Bengals.

    If we win this Sunday, we'll be 1st seed and get the winner of the Ravens/Colts playoff game.

    To add to Thorn's post.

    If we lose, our first play off game will be a week from Sunday.

    If we win, our first play off game will be two weeks from Sunday.


    Both games will be at Reliant.

    There is still a slight chance that the Patriots end up as the 4 seed (Ravens win, Pats lose). Also, if Houston is the 1 seed and the Bengals upset the 3 seed, Houston would play the Bengals. They will just play the lowest seeded team still in the playoffs.

    If we win Sunday we would get the winner of the 4/5 matchup unless the 6 seed Bengals upset whoever they play.

    Not entirely true. We could get the 2nd if we lose and the Pats or Broncos lose.
    We could still get the 1st if all of us lose.

    We won't know when we play until after the afternoon games.

    So, it's already been determined that we'd play on Sunday the 13th if we're the #1 seed? I like that.

    I believe on the wild card round NBC get first pick of one AFC and one NFC game.
    One division and championship rounds I don't recall who get 1st pick.

    If it flip-flops like it has the past couple of seasons (as far back as I've bothered to look) and the times remain the same like they have, then the schedule will be like this:

    Saturday, Jan. 5
    NFC Wild Card - 3:30 CT
    AFC Wild Card - 7:00 CT

    Sunday, Jan. 6
    AFC Wild Card - noon CT
    NFC Wild Card - 3:30 CT

    Saturday, Jan. 12
    AFC Divisional Playoff - 3:30 CT
    NFC Divisional Playoff - 7:00 CT

    Sunday, Jan. 13
    NFC Divisional Playoff - noon CT
    AFC Divisional Playoff - 3:30 CT

    Sunday, Jan. 20
    NFC Championship - 2:00 CT
    AFC Championship - 5:30 CT

    If the Texans get the 3 seed and lose the bye, I'd almost bet they get the noon Sunday slot as opposed to the primetime Saturday slot.

    If the Texans get the bye, they'll be playing at 3:30 either Saturday or Sunday the 12th or 13th.
