PFW Online: Vol. 26, Issue 23

Published: 2011-12-27
Cover Date: January 1, 2012
This is the issue for Week 17 previews and Week 16 game coverage.


We take an in-depth look at the NFL's 10 most compelling story lines in the coming year. PFW's staff ranks the biggest stories and offers a prediction on the outcome for each.


PFW identifies the three keys for the Texans to get back to the level of play that put them among the AFC's top teams before their recent two-game losing streak cast doubt on their playoff prospects.


There are still playoff berths to be won and playoff seeding to be sorted out during the final week of the regular season. Check out our analysis of the Game of the Week and the rest of the slate.
