There is no chance of Houston winning their division, because the Colts are currently 13-0, and have clinched the division. Houston still has a slim chance to make the playoffs as a wild-card team.

The first thing they almost certainly would have to do is win the rest of their games. After beating Seattle today (12/13/09), they're now 6-7 with 3 games remaining. If they win out, they'd be 9-7.

Denver (8-5) and Jacksonville (7-6) are both currently in the wild-card spots, and Baltimore, Miami and New York are all currently 7-6 after their 12/13/09 wins. So besides winning out, Houston would need Jacksonville and New York to finish no better than 8-8, since both have already beaten Houston this season, and would probably need Miami and Baltimore to also finish no better than 8-8.

Realistically, the Texans' chances are slim. All they can do is win out, and then hope the teams ahead of them lose.
