    This was already a big game, now with the Steelers losing yesterday a win gives the Texans a stranglehold on the 3rd seat and a realistic chance at a 2nd seed(reminder the Pats still go to Miami, who has some sort of voodoo on the Pats down there). Winning out isn’t completely out of the realm but they’ll need to to get the 2 seed imo. Also need to stay 2 steps ahead of the colts

    The Patriots still have to play the Vikings and the Steelers those are the games they have a chance of losing.

    Houston Texans (7-3)
    FPI playoff chances: 92.1 percent

    The Texans aren't as good as their record. They have the Pythagorean expectation of a 5.9-win team, leaving them more than a full win ahead of their underlying level of play. They've played the league's sixth-easiest schedule per FPI. They're on a seven-game winning streak, but the toughest team they have played over that stretch is the Colts. Four of those wins have come by a field goal or less, and a fifth was by a touchdown over the Bills. Their only comfortable victories are over the Jaguars, who benched Blake Bortles, and the Dolphins, who were starting Brock Osweiler.

    If you're a Texans fan, I have good news: None of that is going to matter, because things aren't going to correct themselves for a while. Bill O'Brien's team already has banked enough wins that merely going 3-3 the rest of the way should guarantee a postseason berth. The Texans' schedule actually gets easier -- they're facing the third-friendliest slate of opponents over the final six games, including a three-game homestand against the Titans, Browns and Colts. Beating the Titans and Colts would be enough to clinch the AFC South.

    A 5-1 finish would give the Texans a serious chance of a first-round bye, and they can do that by winning four home games against the Browns and their divisional rivals and beating the Jets on the road. Chances are that the Texans will at least lose one of those seemingly winnable games, but that scenario is hardly implausible.

    One subtle factor driving Houston's turnaround: After years of disastrous performances, the Texans have finally turned around their special teams. After ranking 26th or worse in special teams DVOA for six straight seasons from 2012-17, Houston ranked eighth in the NFL heading into Week 12. The difference between its 2017 and 2018 special teams has been worth about two points per game, which only sounds like a lot when you consider that it has won each of its past two games by that exact margin.

    They have removed "Roof Status" from their game day information this year. No point of even saying "game time decision" any longer.

    I don’t think NE is losing again. What a joke of an AFC East, they haven’t given NE competition going on a decade now.

    If anything, watch what happens with KC. They still get to play San Diego again after all. There’s a lot of value to be had in getting the 3 seed instead of the 4. Both sides don’t get byes, but the four seed is playing San Diego in all likelihood. Compared to a first round home game against the Colts, Titans, or Ravens, that’s an opportunity you fight for.

    The Patriots still have to play the Vikings and the Steelers. Both are barely hanging on to their playoff spots. I think it is likely Patriots lose at least one more game. Maybe two.

    I still remember that last MNF against the Ravens. Andre had a monster game, but we still lost. I don't think Kubes ever got a win, or a good win at least, against the Ravens until 2 seasons later.

    What are the chances that Keke Coutee and Lamar Miller combined put up more points than Hopkins tonight? I am tied and have those two players against one...

    I think two yards is optimistic.:)

    LOL
    I have both Keke and Lamar in one of my leagues and I'm going against Houston defense. In another league I'm going against Deshaun Watson. So I need a shoot-out with a bunch of TDs by Lamar and end-arounds for Coutee. No TDs for Deshaun. In both leagues I'm projected to lose by a close margin.

    I've had a decent amount of fantasy wins/losses come down to a Monday night game. But I don't think I've had it set up like this. Where my opponent and I both have players going, and they are both on the same team lol.
