Sunday Night Football heads into Houston and you better believe this stadium will be rocking come Sunday night.
Playoff implications, home field implications, and first place all are on the line in Houston.
For the Texans, they sit tied atop the AFC South with the Colts at 6-6.
The Patriots hold a 3 game lead for the AFC East, but are tied with both the Broncos and Bengals at 10-2 for first in the league.
Losing once has been a rare thing for the Patriots lately. Losing back-to-back games, well that’s just plain crazy.
New England dropped back-to-back games for the first time in 3 years as they were shocked at home against Philadelphia last time out. New England fell 35-28 after their comeback bid fell just short.
QB Tom Brady threw his first multi interception game since the Superbowl last season. Brady threw two costly picks that led to the Eagles scoring.
Cleaning up mistakes is an absolute must for the Pats as well. They allowed 3 combined touchdowns between their the Eagles defense and special teams. They had allowed three non offensive touchdowns combined in their previous 32 contests.
New England has won 5 of 6 against the Texans, covering in 4 of those contests.
Beating a fire up Tom Brady and determined Tom Brady on national tv is no easy feat by any means for Houston.
However, they really do need to grab a win here if they hope to stay with the Colts or take the lead in the division. Houston has a legit chance here to win the division, but they do trail in terms of tiebreaking rules, meaning every game is that much more important.
Houston comes in after seeing their 4 game winning streak snapped on Sunday in a 30-21 loss to Buffalo. Houston’s defense couldn’t stop QB Tyrod Taylor, who threw for 3 touchdowns in the win. Houston’s defense has allowed just 22.0 points per game this season, but they’ll be going against one of the best offenses in the league.
Look for WR DeAndre Hopkins to be a difference maker here. Him and QB Brian Hoyer have really built chemistry, as Hopkins has 10 touchdowns on the season.
Coming into this one, Houston brings in a 4-2 SU record at home and are 4-2 ATS in those 6 games.
