I don't know how many of you have noticed this, but NFL.com has started their own version of Pro Football Talk called Around the League. Just like PFT, they do a post on stories they see from other sources around the NFL as well as produce some original content. I am surprised it took them this long to tap into that market. It will be interesting to see how they stack up to PFT.

They had a post today where four of their writers predicted which teams will not make the playoffs this year that made the playoffs last year. The Texans were not on anyone's list as a team that would not make it back in 2012.

It will be interesting to see if the Texans can match what they did last year. You have to think their defense is going to come back to earth a little bit, but there is still room for their offense to get better if Matt "Glass Joe" Schaub and Andre Johnson can stay healthy for an entire season.

The Texans are going to be a heavy favorite by pretty much everyone to win the division, but I think the Titans have a real shot to give them a run for their money...maybe I'm crazy...
