I couldn't understand why so many sports writers and other people were choosing the Houston Texans to make the Superbowl, maybe it's because I still think of them as the AFC South basement dweller that they were for so many years before making the playoffs last year. Watching their game today against the Dolphins is making me realize that they are a pretty solid team... that or Miami just really does suck that bad.
The Texans were 7-3 last season with Matt Schaub playing, and were looking pretty sharp offensively and defensively. After Schaub got injured, Texans were still pretty good. Number 2 overall defense, plus Texans were able to beat the Falcons and Bengals twice without Schaub. Texans looks like a serious threat to win the AFC.
