New England Patriots Take on the Houston Texans Sunday Night
The New England Patriots have once again won 10 games. Their last victory came over the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys own the top-ranked offense in the NFL. On the other hand, the Patriots own the best defense in the NFL. The Cowboys only scored nine points. The Patriots continue to struggle on offense. Many are saying that Tom Brady is not the same quarterback he once was. The problem, I think, that Brady and the offense are having is no constancy. The offense has lost many weapons but still many believe he should be the same. This week the Patriots travel to play the Houston Texans. The Texans are currently 7-4. The last game they won by three points over the Indianapolis Colts. Before that game, they lost to the Baltimore Ravens 41-7. The Ravens have beat both the Patriots and Texans. Let’s see who wins.
The Patriots will meet the Texans on Sunday night football. The New England Patriots have won 10 games again. That doesn’t surprise many. The offense has struggled all year. Tom Brady has said many times that the defense and special teams are the reason why the team is where they are. The defense will be tested with Deshaun Watson. They were unable to stop Lamar Jackson and running style quarterback. The Texans have also been a tough opponent for the Patriots. I have a funny feeling that the Patriots will get on track offensively. Their kicker Nick Folk is out after having an appendectomy. The Texans will have to make enough plays on offense to win the game. This is the second to last tough game on the Patriots schedule. I don’t believe they will look past the Texans with the Kansas City Chiefs on the horizon.
The Texans are 1st in the AFC South. They are one game ahead of the Indianapolis Colts. The Texans won one and lost one against the Colts. This game is more important to them. The Patriots only must worry about the Ravens as far as the playoffs go. This has been an up and down season for the Texans. The Texans have beat some good teams and have also been blown out by some. Watson has been sacked many times this year. This was more of a problem earlier in the season. The Patriots have many sacks so Watson could be in trouble. If the New England Patriots can run the ball the Texans are also in trouble. J.J Watt is hurt which is a big part of their defense. The offense will have to find a way to beat the Patriots’ defense. It will be an uphill battle for Texans to beat the Pats.
This will be battle on Sunday night. The Patriots will get back on track on offense. Their defense will be tested by Deshaun Watson. It will be hard for Texans to win. They are missing J.J. Watt and give up many sacks. We will see which team shows up to win.
