I agree. Cincy on the road is a question mark.
It's not playoff related but we learned today that Sanchez is not the answer for the Jets. Another weak offensive showing.

Nobody will want to play at New England or at Denver.
Houston and Indy are indoor teams.

And it's final. The AFC playoffs are set at:

1. Denver Broncos: 13-3
2. New England Patriots: 12-4
3. Houston Texans: 12-4
4. Baltimore Ravens: 10-6
5. Indianapolis Colts: 11-5
6. Cincinnati Bengals: 10-6

It's hard to predict playoff games, but I think the Texans rebound enough to hold off the Bengals and the Colts continue to ride the wave to a win over the Ravens.

Don't be so quick to write Houston off. The Giants and Packers have both done serious damage in the playoffs despite not having home field in the last couple of years. Houston are a very dangerous team and can easily win on the road. I will say I am surprised they lost their last 2 games.

They are not playing like they used to. They are not going anywhere.

I agree. I won't write off any playoff team at this point. Every team out there has some strengths and weaknesses. The Texans still have some impressive offensive talent and they can play defense as well. They get the Bengals in the first round, another team I wouldn't write off. I'm sure that a 1-3 record the last 4 games will have the Texans renewing their focus before they kick off the playoffs. The playoffs are an interesting animal. Last year the Broncos ended the season on a 3 game skid, barely holding on to an 8-8 record and making the playoffs only because of tie breakers. Then they went out and beat a 12-4 Steelers team. Anything can happen in the playoffs.

The Texans HAD a defense. And they won't learn crap from their there losses. They could not full in the gaps after the patriots loss. The offense was non existent against the Vikings and Schaub showed once again that he is not star material in this final game.

My money is on the Bengals. They won't let a half with Texans team best them two years in a row in the wild card round.

Their not beating the Patriots in Foxboro, and I'm not even sure they can beat the Bengals with the way their playing now. It all started so well and it all went to $#!t after that beating they took in Foxboro that Monday night in week 14.

I wouldn't write them off, but now they more than likely have to play @NE and @Denver to get to the big game. I don't like their chances of getting through those two games. While there are plenty of examples of the bye week not mattering, I really think it's huge this year. I think Houston win next week though.
