In Thursday Night Football action, the Houston Texans defeated the Cincinnati Bengals 13-9.


It has been pointed out to me that I have been neglectful in my Major League Baseball coverage lately, and have failed to point out that the Washington Nationals have clinched the National League East divisional championship, and the Los Angeles Dodgers have at least clinched a playoff berth. I also haven’t done any reporting of the Cleveland Indians’ remarkable 22 game winning streak, which is baseball’s longest winning streak in the last 101 years.

Now I have.

And, just to stay up to date, last night, as the Indians defeated the Kansas City Royals 3-2, it was the Los Angeles Angels’ 5-2 loss to the Houston Astros that clinched a playoff spot for the Indians. That means that Cleveland is guaranteed at the very least the second wild car spot, even if they lose all 15 of the games they have left.

Which they won’t.
