The Texans have lost middle linebacker Brian Cushing for the year with a torn ACL. As their only interior defender of any value, as well as the only linebacker on the roster that plays on dime downs, this is a huge blow for the defense. Bradie James will be counted on to take over the dime looks, and Tim Dobbins will take over when Houston needs two linebackers.

Denver's defense carried the team all season, and carried Peyton Manning right to a second Super Bowl ring in his worst season. Carolina's offense joins long list of postseason duds from the 500-point club.
