    I know, I know, let's not look to far in the future, take it one at a time, go 1-0 every week, etc.

    But we're a little over a quarter through the season and we've had a realistic look at each team in the league, including ourselves. We've been kinda sorta tested and we've now had our (knock on wood) big injury of the year that we all knew was coming.

    So how many wins are the Texans bringing in this year, barring anymore significant injuries? The AFC South is plain lousy, and anything less than 6-0 has to be considered a disappointment. The NFC North games are still on the horizon, as well as a tough Pats game in Foxboro. Defense has continued to be studly, and our offense, though not statistically prolific, has proved adequate enough to put 20+ points on the board. Here's the rest of our schedule (with primetime games noted):

    Packers - SNF

    Ravens

    Bye

    Bills

    at Bears - SNF

    Jaguars

    at Lions - Thanksgiving, short week

    at Titans

    at Patriots - MNF

    Colts

    Vikings

    at Colts

    --

    BTW, this is not a panic thread (what's there to panic about?), just trying to gauge the state of the fanbase--always an interesting examination when it comes to a Houston team.

    2 losses at the most in the reg season, then none thereafter..We might have played our worst game of the season and still won. Gotta love it!

    It's just hard to tell with injuries. Nothing's a given (as you saw last night).

    Depends if/when we lock up home-field advantage.

    Correct. Not even Kubiak is dumb enough to play stars when he doesn't have to.

    But if I had to guess, 13-3.

    The two remaining games that I say scare me are the roadies against Chicago and New England. Even with those two being L's, I am hard pressed to find even two more losses in there. My heart says 15-1, my gut says 14-2, and my brain says 13-3.

    I like that.

    My heart says 14-2, my gut says 10-6, my brain says 11-5.

    13-3 with a throwaway loss the last week of the season.

    There are 11 games left. The Texans have a 5-0 record. That means you think the Texans will finish out the season with a 6-5 record?

    G. T. F. O.

    ;)

    Note, for the Texans to finish 13-3, they would need to finish the season with an 8-3 record, which probably means they lost to the Pats and Bears on the road, and perhaps the Ravens at home.

    3 to 4 loses, don't know when, don't know how bad but I suspect that like last year once we have the division or a playoff spot locked up... Kubiak will start to shut it down as he did last year.

    I see 1-1 between Green Bay and Baltimore.

    I see wins against Jacksonville and Tennessee within the division and a split with the Colts.

    I see us beating the Bills and Lions.

    I think we'll take care of a tough Minny team at home, but lose to the Bears in Chicago.

    I also see a loss in New England.

    So, 12-4 it is.

    My guess would be 12-4; the next three or four games will really clarify things: Packers, Ravens, Bills, Bears. If we can at least split, but I am hoping for 3-1, heck 4-0 would be great but unlikely.

    You guys do not know how hard it is to go 13-3.

    Over the last 5 years, an average of nearly 3 teams per year win 13 games. Last year, 4 teams did it. What teams in the NFL do you think are more likely than the Texans to go 13-3?
