By Marc Lawrence, Playbooksports.com — The Falcons, Bears, Packers, Colts, Saints, and Commanders all received a Week 14 Bye this season.
Last year was the only time since 2002 where teams were given a Week 14 Bye and all four teams that received a Bye that week ended up finishing the year with a winning record.
The Texans are facing three teams that will be coming off a Bye week this year, which is the most in the NFL. That’s not ideal since teams will be getting extra rest and preparation time prior to playing Houston.
On the other end of the spectrum, there are seven teams who will be facing a total of zero opponents coming off a bye: Bills, Lions, Broncos, Buccaneers, Chiefs, Bears, Commanders
