Just when you thought it was safe to call the Houston Texans the AFC's one-seed (which they were after they thrashed the bejeezus out of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 37-9, last Sunday), the news came down on Monday that quarterback Matt Schaub's foot injury would most likely put him on the sidelines for the rest of the season.

Notes from Shane:
Just when the Texans finally begin to look like a team that can and would win their division, they get the awful news that Matt Schaub is likely to miss the rest of the season. I took that into account when ranking them. Still, they should continue to play good football despite the loss.

The Bears are back.
With back to back wins against the Eagles and Lions the Bears have put themselves squarely in the NFC playoff picture. They may not be able to catch the Packers but the Bears are starting to look like the team that captured the NFC North crown a year ago. The Bears offense is finally relying on Matt Forte instead of...
As the regular season winds down, NFL fans have an eye towards the playoffs. In the AFC, will the road to the Super Bowl have to go through the New England Patriots? Given the events of this week, I would have to say that the New England Patriots will likely wind up with the number one seed in the AFC this season.
