05:03 PM ET 12.24 | Indianapolis Colts head coach Chuck Pagano is finally returning to the team after undergoing treatment for his leukemia for a majority of the season. On his first day back on the job, Pagano addressed the media at his press conference and began by talking about his wife who helped him through the difficult times. "The happiest day of my life was July 1, 1989 - that's when I got married to my wife, Tina," Pagano said. "I want to thank you. She's a soldier, a warrior, my soulmate. . . . You can't get through this without somebody as strong and as loving, and I thank you, Tina. She never left my side except to go home and do some laundry every morning that we were there. We were there 25 days and you got me through. And I thank you." Pagano has been blown away by the support he's received during his absence and he couldn't be happier to return to the sideline. Pagano appeared ecstatic that he would be coaching the team for their regular-season finale and the team's playoff game. "I told you the happiest day of my life was July 1, 1989? Today was No. 2," Pagano said.

Yes, beating Houston would be a statement, and an emotional lift for everyone.

Not to mention what it does for the seeding of the Patriots.

Only in the case of a big time mis-match. Doesn't happen often but it can make a difference.
