Atlanta Falcons vs Houston Texans Odds
Jeff Garcia or Jake Delhomme could be under center for the injury riddled Houston Texans as they host a critical Week 13 battle against the Atlanta Falcons.
With Matt Schaub and Matt Leinart out, the team is working out both veteran free agents. Either way, it's a tall task for Houston, facing a Falcons team that is 9-3 SU in its past 12 road games and won and covered 5 straight December road games.
Houston has been dynamite at home in December, going 9-1 SU & ATS in their past 10 contests. They opened as a small 1-point underdog on the NFL odds menu.

HOUSTON -- Jake Delhomme had told some other teams no. There were a couple during training camp, and one during the season. He was content being a dad. Had moved from Cleveland back to Louisiana. Wanted to get his kids home, he said. That was going to be the deal. Dad was going to be home, being dad. He doesn't need the money.
And yet he watched every game, every Sunday. Once...
In an ideal world newly signed Texans quarterback Jake Delhomme won't play a down for the team while rookie T.J. Yates guides the club to a Super Bowl victory. Since the world is hardly perfect, the chances of both happening are small.

Hot News for QB Jake Delhomme
As you have surely heard by now, Jake Delhomme is back in the NFL.
The man who quarterbacked the Carolina Panthers to the Super Bowl in 2003, and who is renowned as a great guy and good leader, but who in subsequent years became synonymous with terms like “interception” and “noodle arm”, is now a member of the Houston Texans.
But no matter where Delhomme goes, now or at any...
It’s almost as if the Texans prepped Jake Delhomme’s agent with talking points. Jake Delhomme’s job with the Texans is to help T.J.

I believe that Ndamukong Suh was way, way out of line with his actions on Thanksgiving day. I believe he deserves his two-game suspension. I believe he has some issues to work through.
However, after what I've just seen, I'm also willing to admit that we've gone too far in our criticism of Suh, because we've somehow given Taiwanese animators the idea that Ndamukong...
The absurdly premature playoff picture presents one man's projection for the NFL playoffs, at each given week in the season -- even if that week is unreasonably early.
• The four best teams in the AFC have identical records -- the New England Patriots, Baltimore Ravens, Pittsburgh Steelers and Houston Texans are all 8-3. None of them are question-mark free, either, so what...
