Your Houston Texans close out their regular season with games in Philadelphia against the defending Super Bowl champion Eagles and at NRG Stadium against the Jaguars.
The New England Patriots, who are currently a game back of the Texans for the No. 2 seed (and therefore a bye in the first round) of the AFC Playoffs and hold the tiebreaker over Houston by virtue of their win over the Texans in the season opener, complete their regular season at home, hosting the Bills and Jets.
Crazy things can and do happen in the NFL. But the Patriots are likely to win their last two games, which means the Texans have to win their last two to hold onto that precious first-round bye. What happens in Philly on Sunday afternoon is important, and I know you’ll be locked in. Here’s how to do it.
