It might not matter.

Losing three of four and stumbling into the playoffs certainly isn't ideal but thanks to the Ravens, if the Texans beat the Patriots on Sunday, Houston will host the AFC Championship game next weekend.

The Ravens were the No. 4 seed in the AFC and the Texans are No. 3. The NFL reseeds after each round, so the higher seed earns home-field advantage.

Either way, the Ravens will be on the road. They just don't know if they'll be in New England or Houston. For most of the season, the Texans were the top seed in the AFC. They had to win one of their final two games to be ensured of that top seed but ended up losing both and falling to third in the conference.

After the Ravens beat the Broncos in double-overtime, Texans rookie linebacker sent out a one-word tweet:

"Ravens!"
