Houston has lost five straight after winning the opener — which came against the Jags so let’s not give them too much credit.

Green Bay actually does the same as it will face Chicago, Minnesota, and NFC North leader Detroit to close the season. Wide receivers Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree form one of the more dynamic pairs of receivers in the league.

The Browns sit at 10-4, and if the Steelers lose again this week, the teams’ Week 17 matchup could be to decide the winner of the division. The Colts, meanwhile, are neck-and-neck with the Titans for the AFC South at 10-4, but they haven’t clinched a playoff spot yet and have to keep winning games. The stakes couldn’t be higher for these teams, and they also feature two of the best coaches in the NFL in Indianapolis’s Frank Reich and Pittsburgh’s Mike Tomlin. The Steelers’ defense has been dominant this season as they rank 2nd in yards allowed (297.9 per game) and 2nd in points allowed (18.9 per game).

Quarterback Josh Allen started the game, but was eventually pulled after suffering an arm injury right before the half. In stepped replacement Nathan Peterman midway through the third quarter, a nervous sight for all Bills fans involved. Depending on Hilton’s status, this could be a game to steer clear of, but if there was one thing to hang your hat on after last week, it was Indy’s improved pass protection. Aside from last week’s self-inflicted punishment though, the Colts were also missing wide receiver T.Y.
