Houston Texans can clinch NFL playoff berth Sunday

We've reached that time of year when the NFL's Goliaths of the regular season begin to close in on a playoff berth.

The 9-1 Houston Texans can be the first team to punch their ticket to the dance if the following goes down in Week 12, according to playoff scenarios released by the NFL:

Convoluted scenario No. 1:

Texans win + Titans loss or tie + Dolphins loss or tie + Jets loss or tie + Bengals loss + Chargers loss or tie

Sounds unlikely? Yeah, probably. How 'bout this one?

Convoluted Scenario No. 2:

Texans win + Titans loss or tie + Dolphins loss or tie + Jets loss or tie + Bengals loss or tie + Steelers loss

What have we learned? Well, the Texans are unlikely to clinch a playoff spot in Week 12. But it is possible, which tells you a lot about how their season is going.
