The AFC South is on the line this week at NRG Stadium. There is a more than solid chance that whoever wins on Thursday between the Colts and the Texans takes the division and secures a playoff spot.

Texans fans have a right to be nervous heading into this game on a short week. The Colts beat them in the last match-up and Houston just got stomped by the Ravens in what was supposed to be a game of the week.

If the Texans win, however, they have control of their own destiny. They will be leading the division and there will be no more games against the Colts to dread.

Comeback of the Week: Minnesota Vikings

The Vikings found themselves in a weird spot on Sunday afternoon. Down 20-0 at half against the lowly Broncos, they came raging back to win 27-23. Their comeback showed that the Vikings just might have what it takes to make a serious playoff run. Kirk Cousins has looked good this season. Dalvin Cook is in the conversation for best back in the league. Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen can toast any secondary they play against. This has potential to be a fun team to watch in the coming weeks.

Cringe-Worthy Moment of the Week: Dwayne Haskins tries to rally the troops

The Redskins are a really bad football team. Not only can they not play the sport they are supposed to be professionals in, the front office clearly has no idea what they are doing and no plan on how to improve it. This is going to be a complete rebuild come offseason. As if things didn’t already look bleak, watching rookie QB Dwayne Haskins trying to inspire and get his OL to play better for him is a tough watch. Sorry rook, you’re going to end up getting hit a lot more before the season ends.
