Default Houston Losing 21-0

This changes everything!

I am surprised at this but I guess with the NFL, nothing should be surprising.

If Houston loses, that can eliminate the 3-way tie and then the tie breaker becomes head to head. If Steelers win out and Baltimore loses one - then we would have the tie breaker with NE to claim the #1 seed.

Getting the #1 seed in my view, is the ONLY reason to risk Ben to further injury and try to have him play Monday night.

We have the luxury to see what happens in the other games to make the final decision.

Not to mention the Chiefs hold a small lead over the Packers, and the Bengals are down by a little to the Rams at half. Can't wait till the later games kickoff!

If Houston and Baltimore lose today, Ben must play because #1 seed would give the Steelers a much needed rest and Home field.

no way the texans are gonna go undefeated with their rookie 3rd string back up qb. i also think theres no way the ravens could win their final 5 games in a row.

ive long felt that if we simply didnt drop a game to the 49ers or blow one vs the cheifs/browns/rams, the #1 seed would fall into our laps.

Houston will lose today, Baltimore will lose to SD and the Patriots will narrowly beat the Broncos. Sound likely?

I'm on the edge about the Broncos-Pats game, though.

By the way, change your location to "Give me back my freedom...".

I figured Houston would lose this game, or at least one game before season's end. When you're playing without 3 of your 4 "bigtime" players (Schaub, Mario Williams, and Andre Johnson), you're bound to lose sooner or later.

I have my fingers crossed for a Chargers upset win tonight, which considering they're still playing for a playoff spot and have been on fire lately, and are at home, might be possible.

the patriots will smack the shit out of the broncos.

for some reason they really take it personally and get fired up when the league talks about any player being more glorious than saint tom brady.
