AFC Divisional Playoff Preview and Predictions: Houston Texans vs. New England Patriots

By Jake Rose, 9 months 1 week ago
It wouldn't be hyperbole to say that a Texans victory on Saturday night in Foxborough would be one of the biggest upsets in NFL playoff history.

Houston Texans vs. Indianapolis Colts Preview and Prediction

By Jake Rose, 10 months 1 week ago
A little over a month ago, it looked like a lost season for Indianapolis after the Colts were walloped at home 30-14 by the Chiefs in Week 8. But since that loss, Indianapolis has come alive, winning three out of its last four, their only loss coming at the hands of the Steelers on Thanksgiving night, in a game that quarterback Andrew Luck did not play in due to a concussion. With Luck in the...
