I was attempting to determine if the Texans are the best three win team in the NFL. The task proved more difficult than I imagined. The three win teams are Houston, Tampa Bay, and Cleveland. We beat Tampa Bay in the final game of the pre-season. Since it was the final game, it only proves that our second stringers, third stringers, and soon to be cuttees scored more points than their equivalent players did. That’s good enough for me! We are better than Tamp Bay. Cleveland is more difficult to determine. I would put Houston and Cleveland at about even – tied atop the standings for 3-8 teams. Luckily we face off to end the season, so one way or another the tie will be broken. This Sunday’s game becomes pivotal. If two loss Oakland beats Houston then they not only leap into the mix of three win teams, they also leapfrog the Texans. That would leave Cleveland (assuming a loss) tied with Oakland, then the Texans with Tampa Bay trailing in the cellar. If the Texans beat the Raiders this week, then it is the Texans who will be moving up a class. The four win teams are a much tougher division for us though. As it stands now, we would be facing defending Super Bowl Champion Pittsburgh and two teams that have already beat us – Washington and Tennessee. We would start at the bottom of that group, but the Tennessee game on Dec. 10 would then become pivotal. Next week I hope to be presenting my "The Best Four Win Team" analysis.
