Playing the numbers:Houston

I was wrong with Washington, but let's see what happens here. There has been one known trend between us and the bucs in AFC road games. We have gone combined 2-2 from 06, 08-12, 14 and 0-4 in 07 and 13. We already won in Indy, so the 2-2 is likely to stay. In fact, it will. Not only are we going on the road to Houston this week, the bucs are going on the road to Indy. The last time this happened in road AFC games:

Week 14
NO@Ten-NO won
TB@Jac-Jac won

As far as home games against the AFC:
It has not happened as far as I can remember.

As for the road and home games against NFC

Week 8
GB@NO-NO won
Min@TB-Min won

Week 3
NO@Min-Min won
TB@GB-TB won

In division games where we are both hosting or going on the road against
Week 9
NO@Car-No won
TB@Atl-Atl won

This is all that needs to be said for that no need to bring up the Houston/Indy side really but I'm going to.

Now the bucs have gone 1-1, 0-2 back and forth every year since 03-05 where they were 0-2 three straight seasons in road games against the AFC. TB went 1-1 last year, which means 0-2 is due. However, there is a catch. Could TB go 1-1 again? The reason is because Indy is playing without Luck and maybe could be without Gore this week. TB's defense has gotten scarier and Winston is starting to play like Cam. But Indy's defense is better than Philadelphia's.

That's why I won't say we win but one of the two teams will win and the other will lose.

And against the AFC divisions last five years
NO-4-0, 2-2, 2-2, 1-3.......already this was discussed week 9 where the numbers are hard to decide this season.
TB-1-3, 3-1, 2-2, 1-3........TB has already lost two games. They win this week and move up to 2-2 or stay at 1-3 again.

As for how we have done each against the AFC South since re-alignment
NO-1-3, 1-3, 4-0.........3-1 makes sense. 2-2 is possible.
TB-1-3, 1-3, 1-3..........1-3 again? That is their only record so far.

Now let's look at the Indy/Houston side of things.
Against the NFC divisions last four years
Ind-0-4, 3-1, 2-2, 2-2.......Indy has lost two already and can stay at 2-2 or move down to 1-3.
Hou-2-2, 2-2, 0-4, 1-3......Houston has already gone 1-2 so they have the option of going 1-3 again or move up to 2-2.

Against the NFC South since re-alignment
Ind-3-1, 4-0, 0-4.........1-3 would make sense but 11 was also a annomaly.
Hou-1-3, 3-1, 2-2........1-3 makes perfect sense here.

Upon further breaking down the trend points to us winning and TB losing but I am calling it a draw. One of us will win, the other will lose.

Re: Playing the numbers:Houston

My brother is at one of the Indian casinos visiting with the natives and playing the numbers too. That's apparently what Thanksgiving is all about.
