    Texans are back in the #1 seed. We could use some help from Tebow when he plays the Patriots next week, as well as the 49'ers at Pittsburgh, and the Chargers who host the Ravens next week. It's going to be especially hard to pull for the Chargers...I hate them. It's fun to start looking at who to root for to help the team though...A new experience

    Doesn't hurt that my other team is the Broncos. Has been since the Oilers left. I probably have more broncos hats and shirts than Texans gear :(

    #1 in AFC with 10-3 record and a guaranteed #3 seed atleast....

    so we might host the Jets in wildcard weekend.
    I would prefer to be the #1 seed winning next 3 games and hope the patriots and ravens loose a game each and we host steelers and then the ravens/patriots. definitely dont want to visit the ravens

    Broncos-Patriots should make for an interesting matchup.

    Not a guaranteed #3 seed. We could lose out while the Broncos win out. We'd finish a game behind them and have the #4 seed.

    What would be great if we finish with the #3 and Pittsburgh is the wildcard is to have them knock off Baltimore while we go to Foxboro and beat the Patriots.

    AFC Championship game right here at Reliant against the Steelers.

    This.

    I had this game in the W column for a long time but now it's the only one left that has me worried.

    Houston favored by 6.5

    The Titans beat them 30-3 and the Falcons just whipped them.

    It's a trap game, no doubt. But as long as the winning streak is alive for the remainder of this season the next game is always going to be a trap game.

    Well. Yeah. There's no way this team loses at home in an AFC Championship game. Especially not to the Steelers.

    It's weird, not only being the number 1 seed now, but that we were the first team in the AFC to clinch a play-off spot (division)... I never imagined......

    Not sure how that's possible....
    Wild card weekend - Texans #3 vs #6 Jets at Reliant and Steelers #5 vs Denver #4

    Ravens #2 vs texans #3 and #1 patriots vs #5 steelers

    any other scenario where steelers could play ravens ??? only a ravens loss will give us #2 seed and that will help a lot. let the pats be #1

    I hope Jesus doesn't get his hopes up. This is the NFL after all.
