Are the Texans going to the playoffs? by Dan Solomon, Texas Monthly
"Of course, they don’t have to be good to do it. The AFC South is the classic outrun-the-bear situation: the Texans don’t have to be a competitive professional football team to win the division, they just have to be more competitive than the Colts, the Titans, and the Jaguars. As ridiculous as it would be, it’s actually theoretically possible for any one of those teams to make the playoffs with a 5-11 record, so fans in Houston worried about a lackluster lineup can hang their hat on the fact that the fans of every other team in the division are rooting for people like Matt “I Coulda Sworn He Was An Announcer Now” Hasselbeck, Antonio “Just Want To Make Sure I Have His Name Right Since I’ve Literally Never Heard Of Him Before” Andrews, and T.J. “Not Yates” Yeldon."
