I'll be very surprised if Gronk isn't back in time for the Jacksonville game.

Yeah, but that's only because he could score 3 TDs against the Jaguars' defense with one arm.

3. Expect EVERY play to be play action. The crem-de-la-crem of the Texans' O is the lethal PA pass that is used many times in a game. Matt Schaub and the OL have the fakes down to a science, every single time Matt naked boots out - he's got nobody within a 10 yard radius of him, he's got all day to see where the cracks are, and his targets have all day to break downfield when they see a hole. Spy someone on Schaub on every play in that sense, and send 'em loose when Schaub starts to roll. Limit the time he has to view the field and find the target to throw to.


Better keep Pat Chung and Tavon Wilson off the field. The Pats might be one of the worst teams in the league against the playaction.

Can we keep Gregory off too? He might be worse than those guys. He bit so hard on that one Tannehill fake last week, I thought he might jump straight out of his cleats crashing downhill.

he's a terrible run defender anyway, why bother?

Besides, "crashing downhill" is up there with NFL all-pro and Martian ambassador among ways I would not describe Steve Gregory.

Not quite. Just go look at the Texans Packers GDT in our forum, both teams were down on each owns team. Albeit GB was in a must win situation Aaron Rodgers still put on the greatest performance from a QB I've ever seen.

Andre Johnson called this the most important game in Texans history.

As Mankins pointed out, they made the playoffs last year Laughing

TE Garrett Graham will not play at New England cause of a concussion.

Without Graham, FB James Casey will get more play at TE. Texans use 2 TEs a lot.

Seems like Texans consider this game bigger than the Patriots think of it as. Specially when Gronk is out.

The Pats tend to downplay things in public.

From a fan's point of view, this game is way more important for the Pats than Texans. A loss for the Pats probably kills their chances for a bye. A loss for the Texans probably doesn't affect their playoff seeding at all.

I don't know why teams get so pumped to play us like if there was a championship on the line. We haven't won a sb in almost a decade. It's fun tho, we get the opposing team's best shot so that makes us better I guess. Razz

Because the Patriots are still the measuring stick for most of the league as far as organizational success goes.
