With a 4-3 record, it may be a little premature for Texans fans to be thinking playoffs. That said, many believed last year's Dolphins were a fluke as well. Needless to say, the Texans have to go to Orchard Park, NY and beat the Buffalo Bills. Battle Red Nation is going to map out your other rooting interests for Sunday's games.

Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans- The Jags are 3-3 and already own a win head to head against the Texans. What's worse is that only one of the Jags three defeats have been to an AFC team. Texans fans will be rooting hard for the team that abandoned town on Sunday.

Miami Dolphins at New York Jets-
The Jets are 4-3, the Dolphins are 2-4. This one's easy, you want the Fish to finish the sweep of the J-E-T-S Jets Jets Jets.

Denver Broncos at Baltimore Ravens-
The Ravens are probably the best 3-3 team in the league, and Texans fans should be hoping for them to become the best 3-4 team in the league. Let's hope Josh McDaniels smoke and mirrors show baffles for another week.

Oakland Raiders at San Diego Chargers-
It's tough to depend on a Raiders victory to help your team, but that's what the Texans have to do. Hey, the Raiders won a meaningless game for them last December in Tampa, maybe it could happen again? I don't think so either.

Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers-
Sure, this game has no bearing on the Texans playoff hopes, but you can't possibly root for Brett Favre to rip the Packers fans hearts out in their own building, can you?
