    I was thinking the same.

    That was ugly. 3 turnovers. Still, a win's a win. Hopefully we protect the ball better next week.

    I want to see Savage start for y'all next year. Not really sure what your GM saw in Osweiler. Add a healthy JJ Watt and that defense is going to be even scarier next year.

    ^ Also. Much respect to Houston's defensive play in this game.

    I'm sure the Seahawks were classy and gracious in defeat like they always are

    In Brock's defense, he threw a perfect pass on the touchdown pass that was dropped. Clearly the turning play of the game. Not saying Houston comes back to win, but I think Brock presses less if the Texans trail by only 24-20.


    I was not impressed by Houston's secondary. Too many times, Brady threw a lazy floater that somehow managed to end up in the arms of a Patriots receiver. Not going to get away with that next week.

    ^ Still. Two picks and a forced fumble on defense, plus one on special teams, is a good showing.

    Yeah Houston's defense did very well. Aren't they a top ranked D this year?

    Houston's defense was #1 in yards allowed and had the top rated secondary.

    tipped picks iirc? and special teams gave up a 98 yard return.

    on another note, how satisfying to watch the seahawks get they asses whipped.

    and yet another note, really looking forward to Pittsburgh at KC. I think that may end up being the most engaging game of this postseason.

    Agree on all points. One of the picks was tipped off a receiver's hand and one off a good defensive play by a Houston LB. Sometimes it pays to be lucky, though, and I think the pressure on Brady probably contributed to a throw or two being off target.

    If NE had managed to lose to HOU, I would have called the PIT KC game the de facto AFC Championship. I hope it delivers. I'd kind of like to see KC pull off the win. I don't have strong feelings on who I'd rather the Patriots face next week as far as win probabilities go, but KC has not been to the Superbowl in a very long time.

    With no rooting interest in the playoffs, I just want to see Aaron Rodgers as much as possible. I've been watching football a long time, and have never seen anyone play the position of quarterback as well.

    Christ, the announcers should just blow Arron Rodgers already.

    What a game! Rodgers is clutch as fuck, but I think their luck runs out next week.

    The games today were great. Hopefully the conference championship games will be as good.

    I think not. But I'm not objective, and all I need to do is wear my lucky Super Bowl shirt. :)

    ESPN saying Rodgers is not "far removed" from Brady in GOAT talk. I think it's a bit of a stretch (shocking, I know) but not unfathomable. Rodgers is a once-in-a-lifetime player on a skills/talent basis and is far better than Brady... but Brady's ability to lead teams, engineer drives, read defenses and find ways to make Danny Amendola and Julian Edelman legitimate receiving threats is also phenomenal and likely to never be repeated.
