Most of you don’t know that I’m a die hard Texans fan. I’ve watched through some pretty rough seasons and some surprisingly good ones. And even though this year has been a struggle, the Texans can still make the playoffs with some help from a couple guys.
The Houston Texans can make the playoffs if:
They beat The Jacksonville Jaguars. Okay. Not the most difficult proposition.
The Kansas City Chiefs beat the San Diego Chargers. Wouldn’t have been the worst thing in the world until they lost their starting quarterback this week. Now they must beat the Chargers (who are also vying for a playoff spot) with a quarterback who has all of one career NFL start. Oh great.
AND the Cleveland Browns beat the Baltimore Ravens. The Browns are starting their third string, rookie quarterback today after losing their first two to injury. Fantastic.
So all the Texans need is a backup quarterback to lead his team to victory and a third stringer to do the same. Nothing big, right?
If all those things happen the Texans would be in the playoffs as the sixth seed. But they’d be in.
That’s all today. If you’re a fan of the NFL, then sit back and watch the final week of the regular season. If not, well then don’t. Ha.
UPDATE: The Texans beat the Jaguars. The Chiefs beat the Chargers. But Cleveland could not come away with a win in Baltimore. The Texans finish the season 9-7 and miss the playoffs. Sad John.
