Playoffs watch: Which teams to root for

If you're a Texans fan, here are the teams to root for today (aside from the Texans, of course). All of these teams face somebody currently ahead of the Texans in the AFC Wild Card standings.

The previously 1-11 Cleveland Browns already beat the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night, dropping the defending champs' record to 6-7.

Carolina Panthers (5-7) at New England Patriots (7-5, AFC East)
Indianapolis Colts (12-0) vs. Denver Broncos (8-4, AFC West)
Miami Dolphins (6-6) at Jacksonville Jaguars (7-5, AFC South)
Detroit Lions (2-10) at Baltimore Ravens (6-6, AFC North)
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-11) vs. New York Jets (6-6, AFC East)
St. Louis Rams (1-11) at Tennessee Titans (5-7, AFC South)

Of course, it all starts with the Texans' game against the Seahawks at Reliant Stadium. The Texans are looking for their first victory since Nov. 1, when they beat the Buffalo Bills 31-10 to put their record at 5-3.
