    It's really real. Our boys just clobbered the second best team in the AFC.

    Would still feel better had we put up a better fight against an NFC team last week, if only we could play an AFC opponent in the superbowl.

    Haha! So true. Look at mediocrity in the AFC today. It's almost like all .500 teams.

    But I think the Packer game was just your classic trap game. Texans were undefeated and looking past the Pack to the game against the Ravens. The result was a spanking. No big deal in the grand scheme of things.

    Yep, and the Patriots aren't looking elite right now.

    They are now the team that scares me the most because of Brady.

    Sorry to be a downer... but is it possible to fix out special teams this season?

    If you were paying close attention, the Ratbirds were playing really lousy defense the last few games...plus they lose multiple quality starters.

    Texans are a good team, but not because they beat the Ratbirds.

    Nah, it does matter. Every little bit helps and i'm pretty sure everyone in the Texans organization will tell you they rather play in Reliant come playoff time.

    Yes it does. Balitmore has won 22 of their last 23 home games. 8-0 last year, 4-0 already this year. Home-field advantage will be huge for the Texans when the playoffs roll around.

    Party-pooper.

    Ravens are second best in the AFC according to their record. I agree that we're likely to see a better matchup with the Patriots.

    So you think that same team shows up in the playoffs. Balt and ne deserve plenty of playoff respect. What big game have we won that didn't involve cinci. Take the win today but don't beat your chest after gb beat the logo off our helmets

    I don't think anyone isn't given those teams respect...but the Texans are the best team in the AFC right now.

    It is what it is. The Texans are the best team in the AFC right now. All these other teams including Cincy (especially them) have had multiple bumps as of right now.

    Sure Green Bay whipped up on us but as of right now that looks more like a aberration than something that is going to happen again and again.

    Any ways I feel as long as JJo holds up our defense will look exactly how it did today. That was a good offense they did that to today.

    Ha you called me a bandwagon fan. Been riding from Austin to Houston for years to be a bandwagon fan. Just keeping it real after going to Houston to watch gb beat the Crap out of your Texans then driving back to Austin
