I went with Houston if they lose I could be 8-8 back to my normal record. This will be a tough game for Texans, hope they can pull it off.

seemed like Texans has had about 6 must win games this season so far.

They had to beat the Broncos to settle the old Peyton Manning score
They had to beat the Packers because it was prime time- loss doesn't seem that important now
They had to beat the Ravens because it showed they were AF Contenders- got a huge win but that seems so long ago now
They had to beat Chicago in Chicago to show they can play in cold weather against one of the NFCs best
They had to beat Detroit because it was Thanksgiving

Now its December and beating the Pats is the new must win


Next week it will be beating the Colts thats the next must win to secure the 1st seed
The week after will be a must win against Peterson

I was really disappointed in the Bengals and Steelers and did not expect those losses.

The Eagles win was a surprise and the Falcons loss was a pleasant surprise.


TVandSportsGuy, the Texans have only one more loss coming this season and that will be against the Colts

No way they are winning in frosty New England against the best Offense they face all season. Pats will win tonight...........BOOK IT

Texans proved for the second time they can't play on the big stage against winning teams

Lost on MNF to the Packers in a blowout

Lost on MNF to the Pats in a blowout


Not a good look with the playoffs so close

They beat the Bears on SNF.

The big problem is not big stages - it's big QBs. They never seem to turn around and see the deep ball in the defensive secondary. No pressure on the QB is trouble.

First half versus the Colts next week will indicate what they learned from tonight. Brady James said they were taught a lesson. Did they get it or not? It's mental. It's intensity. Patriots hit them fast, early, and hard.

Too late for the Pats to get the one seed but I still think they can beat any AFC team on the road.

Looks like Belichick had a real solid anti-Watt plan, no sacks or passes defended.

Game surprised me, I thought Houston would come out and at least keep it close. This wasn't new territory for them, they knew what Brady can do to a team.

Moving on, 3 more weeks, things fall in place, NFC wild card race is crazy. Early people were saying NFC North might have 3playoff teams, now I'm wondering if Bears will make the playoffs. Packers win Sunday, take the north, start chasing for 2nd seed.

No - it's not too late. Pats are one back with three to go.
