Houston clinches home-field advantage throughout AFC playoffs with:

    As long as we stop Adrian Peterson the first round bye and home field advantage is already in the bag!!!!!!! It’s pretty much a must-win for us because the odds of the Patriots and the Broncos losing their next games is highly unlikely! GO TEXANS! BULLS ON PARADE!!!!!!!!
