Texans don’t clinch playoff spot — yet

Posted by Nick Scurfield on November 25, 2012 – 3:36 pm

The Texans will not clinch a playoff spot in Week 12.

They had a chance to become the first NFL team to wrap up a spot in the postseason this weekend, but a couple of outcomes on Sunday negated that possibility.

After beating the Detroit Lions, the Texans needed the following to happen to clinch a playoff berth:

1) TEN loss or tie + MIA loss or tie + NYJ loss or tie + CIN loss + SD loss or tie
2) TEN loss or tie + MIA loss or tie + NYJ loss or tie + CIN loss or tie + PIT loss

The Jets, Titans and Steelers all lost. The Chargers play the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday afternoon. But the Miami Dolphins beat the Seattle Seahawks and the Cincinnati Bengals beat the Oakland Raiders.

At 10-1, the Texans are tied with the Atlanta Falcons for the best record in the NFL. They have a three-game lead in the AFC South over the Indianapolis Colts (7-4), who they play twice in the final three weeks of the season.

    That’s alright, we don’t worry about the small things. After this season and the post-season starts 1 loss and it’s over. that’s when we really pay attention. My TEXANS superbowl champs and the world shall see.

    To clinch homefield advantage, all we have to do is win 2 out of the 5 games left in the season, but one of those has to be against the New England Patriots. If we don’t end up beating them, we have to win the rest of the games. But, we shouldn’t worry at all. H UP 4 DEM TEXANS!!!!!
