By now, you're probably sick of reading about the various ways the Houston Texans can win the AFC South and earn the right to host a playoff game next weekend. Although the Texans don't technically have to beat the Jaguars today to finish the season atop the division, there's something to be said for finishing 9-7 with a 5-1 record in the AFC South instead of 8-8 with a 4-2 divisional record. Plus, there's the idea of building or maintaining momentum heading into the postseason; I realize some don't believe in the concept, though I'd have to respectfully disagree. Regardless, a win over the Jaguars and the Texans taking care of their own business is far preferable to needing the help of one of eight other teams to snag a playoff berth.
