    They are still an extreme dark horse at best, even with their win, they are still a full game behind the Texans and Colts....and that's assuming a Texans loss to the Pats. being a full game back with 3 games to go is rough...but possible. Their last 3 games are against inconsistent teams, Atlanta, New Orleans, and Houston.

    Like I said in the previous thread, if you had to pick between both Texans and Colts winning or both losing? Both teams losing benefits the Texans. It makes the Colts' division record worse. Still, the Texans have to win next week.

    It's right there for the Texans. We'll see if they're up for the challenge this last few games.

    Will the Colts risk their franchise QB if he isn't 100% next week?

    I think they have no choice. A loss to the Texans pretty much ensures they don't make the playoffs and if they don't make the playoffs the head coach could very well lose his job.....no one cares that he once had cancer anymore. They were supposed to be a contender, not the team that they ended up being.

    Jets have a tough schedule. I don't count them in.

    I think Steelers and Chiefs win the wild card. Easy schedules and both look good.

    I just flipped the TV on to the Colts game.

    My word, I thought violent rape wasn't allowed on TV.

    Texans, the division is yours for the taking.

    If the playoffs ended right now, the Texans will be hosting a playoff game.

    In other potentially good news, Washington may not want to draft a QB in the first round :)

    Lol the Hasselback magic is over. Knew the old man wouldn't be able to keep it up.

    They said this morning Luck is questionable to return against us but is more likely to return in week 16. I dare the Colts to play Hasselback against us lol

    That sounds about right, so after the playoffs are over the Texans can host an imaginary playoff pickup game. ;)

    You mean like he did and bet us earlier in the season? I'm not going to make any declarations based on anything until we actually win a game in Indy.

    I would be surprised if the Steelers & Chiefs end up worse than 10-6, and I'd also be surprised if the Texans ended up better than 9-7, so you're right: at this point, the Texans best and most likely shot at the Playoffs is to win the Division. The Bills loss pretty much took us out of contention for a WC spot.

    Meh... they're simply taking advantage of it being a night game.

    I love games on NBC. Quality is so nice. The Downtown Skyline back drops / coverage. I wish we had this love all the time. :cool:
