    By: Christine Roy

    Thank you Houston! With their second consecutive loss, the Houston Texans opened up the door for the Patriots to walk into the second seed in the AFC. ...

    Thanks Houston, that week off is huge. I think we will be seeing Houston again, real soon.

    I wouldn't be at all surprised if Cincy knocks them out.

    But if the Bengals win they go to Denver, not NE, so the only way the Pats will face them is at home in the AFCCG. I'd take that.

    One thing that will be a huge advantage for the bengals, they used yesterdayas a bye, whereas Houston played to win and lost. Given the game is being played Saturday, the short week will make it very difficult for Houston to rebound.

    Not just physically, but the mental letdown is huge. If it was anyone but Marvin Lewis on the sidelines, I would have a lot lore confidence in the bengals.

    Not that this will be any revelation to anyone, but just as a summation.

    The Pats have rested some of their more injured players for the last two weeks, they get two weeks off now before their next game, and then if they can win two more games they get another two weeks off to rest.

    We've got a shot of getting relatively healthy if we are fortunate enough to get to the Superbowl.

    Just pray for no more new injuries.
