Don't understand this.
If you're the Texans, and could only pick one, would you rather win the Divisional Playoff game against Baltimore or this game?
This game is really no different than the Green Bay game, 'Houston wanting to prove they can play with the "big boys"'.
HOU can lose this game and win the Super Bowl
HOU can win this game and lose in the divisional round
HOU could not afford to lose that divisional game if it wanted to make the Super Bowl
This may be their biggest game this season, but not of the franchise.
