It's always a good thing to have the top seed in the conference, but a strong case could be made for why the other five teams could make it to the Super Bowl. With the first round of playoff games just days away, this list promises to get shaken up. While host teams are 11-3 straight-up in the last 14 wild card games, last season the favored team went 0-4 against the spread while the road team was 4-0 ATS.
The Colts (9-6) and Titans (9-6) headed into today's action needing a Houston loss matched with a win on their end to clinch a division title, but now are simply playing for the sixth seed in the AFC playoff picture.
If the Colts, 10-6, upset the Texans, 11-5, on Saturday afternoon, then Indianapolis will face the Chiefs.
The over-under for the game is 41½ points.
Andrew Luck was sacked a league-fewest 18 times and maintaining that protection will be critical against the Texans, who count on pass rushers Jadeveon Clowney and J.J. Watt to make up for middling coverage. Coincidentally enough, their three losses - to the Carolina Panthers, Dallas Cowboys, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers -were to the same three teams they lost to when they last won the Super Bowl in 2010.
