Which AFC teams Texans fans want to win this weekend:
Chargers: Go Pats!
Bills: We want the Broncos in this one.
Steelers: The steel curtain must fall! Colts v. Browns: Easy, we would love to see our division leader fall today....and next week, and so on.
Ravens: This one is a bit more complicated. They are both 7-5 overall, but Miami is 6-3 against AFC opponents, while the Ravens are 3-5 in conference play. Go with the Dolphins here to help eliminate the Ravens before the Texans face them in two weeks. Chiefs v. Cardinals: We need some good Cards today.
The Texans need to take care of business today, and we'll also be pulling for the Patriots, Broncos, Bengals, Browns and Dolphins to help shape the AFC this weekend. Enjoy some meaningful football on this NFL Sunday!
