  • Houston Texans (2) – DEN, @TEN

Summary

Two games to go and the Houston Texans are in decent shape. Denver still has something to play for (the #1 seed) and should have no trouble beating Houston. Then comes Tennessee, who has been eliminated from the playoffs, lost three straight, and 8 of the last 10. Tennessee has actually been worse at home, so that doesn’t help. They also might be trying to tank for a better draft pick at that point, so anything is possible.
