In order for the Houston Texans to make a Super Bowl run, all things not football must be tuned out.
The Denver Broncos took care of business on their end last night by dumping the Oakland Raiders. The pressure now falls on the Houston Texans — who face a tough four-game stretch beginning Sunday in Foxboro. The order is the same for the Patriots and Ravens.
In the NFC, the Atlanta Falcons face the Panthers, Giants, Lions and Bucs in December. They are well aware that home field advantage can still be lost. The Packers, Bears Giants and 49ers are still in the hunt. Teams like the Buccaneers, Seahawks and Vikings are looking for an invite to the playoff party with hopes of spiking the punch.
