Another Sunday in fall means another day full of NFL action all over the country. From the nation’s capitol to the pacific coast northwest all the way down to the Lone Star state, you can’t miss all the football action going down today. We’re getting to the point in the season where teams are starting — or at least trying to — separate themselves from the pack and take leads in their division and respective playoff races.
Houston has been beyond a dissapointment this season, sinking themselves lower and lower in the NFL power rankings each week and casting doubt over their franchise’s immediate future. They all of a sudden have serious offensive questions with Arian Foster on IR and a quarterback not to be found on the roster. Their defense is also struggling as well, with nothing personifying that more than a loss to the lowly Jaguars last week.
The Patriots had a much better week, beating the Denver Broncos and reigning their stride in the AFC. They control the No. 2 seed in the AFC and with a few lucky bounces, could emerge from the Broncos-Chiefs debate the No. 1 team in the playoffs.
