The playoff hunt continues this week, with your Houston Texans currently sitting 2nd in the AFC by tiebreaker. Theres a lineup of about 8 games this week with the potential to affect the Texans playoff chances.
Jaguars @ Bills - Both AFC teams, and let's be honest, the Bills aren't going to challenge for the playoffs this year. The Jags sit in 2nd place in the AFC South, so a Bills upset at home would be very beneficial here.
Chiefs @ Colts - Very helpful game here. As unlikely as it is, the Chiefs currently are 1st in the AFC as the only remaining undefeated team in the league. Now I think we all know they aren't going to stay there, but it is possible, however unlikely, that they could challenge for a wild card or even the weak AFC West division title. Then you have the Colts sitting in last in the division at 2-2. We know they are still dangerous, and we have to beat them to win this division. The most benefical outcome would be the Chiefs finding a way to do something no one has done since 2002: Beat the Colts in their house coming off a loss.
Bucs @ Bengals - This one is pretty clear. The Bengals will probably be fighting to try to get a wild card this year. So the weak NFC Bucs pulling off the upset here would be helpful.
Packers @ Redskins - Two NFC teams, so not a lot of effect on us, other than the Redskins winning could help in the unlikely situation we are involved in some crazy tiebreaker at the end of the year that relies on strength of schedule.
Broncos @ Ravens - We play both of these teams this year so either losing is good. The Ravens will either win the North or be in the thick of the wild card picture. The Broncos, in the weak AFC West, will probably either win the West or miss the playoffs. The Ravens are the better team here, so let's hope for
Jesus Tebow to will the Broncos to victory.
Titans @ Cowboys - Man. I mean, just MAN. If only one of those sinkholes that open up in Mexico all the time would find itself right under Jerry World this weekend, all would be right with the world. Our two most hated foes, so either losing gives satisfaction. But, the most helpful to our cause would be the Cowgirls coming off their bye and destroying the Titans.
Vikings @ Jets - I hate both these teams, but the Jets are on the schedule and have a giant walking penis as a head coach. Let's hope that Brett Favre can find a little more magic to lead his NFC team over the Jets on the road.
