This is a winnable game for my Vikes so I picked them. That means they'll probably lose.

do you really get to show why you are number one by playing a team that got blown out the week before??

Whether they win or lose against the Nets, I think their chances to impress will be when they play Green Bay next week and the Ravens the week after

I am looking forward to the Houston game, can't wait. I really like JJ Watt out of Wisconsin, he is on a roll this year. I think the Packers will be really up for that game. Houston hasn't been playing teams from the cream of the crop.

I totally agree. Not to take anything away from them, Houston looks really good and they're my #2 team in the NFL. But they've played Miami, Jacksonville, Denver and Tennessee so far. And now they're going to play a horrible Jets team that's coming off a 34-0 blowout.

Their true test for the season starts next week, with Green Bay and Ravens back to back. Of course, they're lucky enough to get both of those games at home.

::edit:: holy crap! I just looked at Houston's entire schedule for this year, they must have one of the easiest schedules in the NFL. I know they can't help who they play, but wow...they got it easy. I fully expect them to have home field advantage through the entire playoffs.

This could be their year.

I agree with you, but two things:

1. They have been playing well regardless of the teams they play. LOL, the goal keeps moving for the Texans. First it was the Broncos that was supposed to be the first real them they played, then it was pushed back to the Jets, now the Packers. I do agree though, the Packers and Ravens will be their first really tough ones. I predict that they will beat the Ravens though

2. The schedule looks easy because the AFC south is weak this year. Because the Titans, Colts and Jags are in their division they have 8 games that seem easy. But they also have to play the Packers, the Ravens, the Bills, the Bears, the Patriots, the Vikings and the Lions. That is tougher than the Falcons whose only challenge this year will be the Giants. I can show you at least 10 teams with easier schedules

anyway, a team is a team and you never know which one is gonna surprise you.

PS, congrats to the Rams on their win.

If they blow them out - then yes.

They don't get much national TV exposure. Now they get the next two weeks - maybe three with the Ravens.
