NFL: 7, no change.
ESPN: 6, up 1 spot.
USA Today: 7, no change.
Bleacher Report: 7, no change.
The Saints, Chargers, Bears, Rams and Chiefs are all universally ranked ahead of the Texans. However, there is some disagreement now as to whether the 9-5 Patriots, the team the Texans leapfrogged in the playoff picture last week, should be ahead of Houston or not.
In fact, the Patriots are ranked as low as 9th by Nate Davis of USA Today. The Colts (!!!), yes, the 8-6 Colts, are ranked sixth, one spot ahead of the Texans in those USA Today rankings.
What say you, BRB? Are the Texans ranked higher, lower, or just right?
