The Houston Texans are a surprising 2-0 under new head coach Bill O’Brien. Meanwhile, the New York Football Giants are still winless after losing their home opener to the Arizona Cardinals 25-14 on Sunday. This week, $100 million man J.J.

Thanks to big games by running back LaGarrette Blount and linebacker Jamie Collins, the New England Patriots are in the AFC Championship Game once again.
This AFC Divisional Playoff Game features legendary New England quarterback Tom Brady against Indy’s Andrew Luck, who seems to be a legend in the making.

Three division titles remain undecided heading into the final week of the NFL season: the AFC South, NFC South and NFC West.
