While the Houston Texans would not technically be eliminated from playoff contention with a loss to the Colts in Indianapolis this afternoon, their chance of grabbing one of the two wild card berths in the AFC would be virtually nil. A Colts win today would give them the AFC South, so a wild card would be the Texans' only route to the postseason. As has been covered at length, there are currently four (4) other teams with a record of 7-6 and three more teams sitting at 8-5. For all practical purposes, Houston can't lose again and expect to keep pace.
So, you know, no pressure, boys. There's only a season riding on what happens over the next three hours
This is your first open thread for the Week Fifteen AFC South tilt between your Houston Texans and the Indianapolis Colts. May your comments echo through eternity.
