Overview
This was supposed to be a revenge game for our Texans following last years playoff loss in Foxboro, but the NFL gods had other plans.

Texans A team in a free fall, with a lame duck coach that has lost his team, and lost 9 consecutive games finds itself fight for the #1 overall pick. If Keenum, who provided an offensive spark after coming off then bench to start in place of the injured Matt Schaub (although hasn't resulted in W's) struggles again, I wouldn't be surprised to see Matt get in the game Sunday. Running back Dennis Johnson showed some promise, with Tate clearly feeling the effects of his rib injury against the Jags, I expect to see a heavy dosage of un-drafted rook. On defense reigning DPOY JJ Watt continues to be the lone bright spot on a bad defense.

Pats
The Pats come into Houston after a great comeback win over Denver, where they spotted the Broncos 24 points. HC Bill Belichick differed the ball and choose the wind in OT, and it worked out as Manning couldn't solve the wind all night. Although the win came at the bone head play of the Denver ST's a win is a win and they come in leading the AFC East and are fighting for a 1st round bye and home field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Keys to the game
1) Get pressure on Brady
2) Establish a consistent running game
3) Score Td's not FG's


X-Factor Whitney Mercilus - if Mercilus can generate pressure off the edge to go along with Watt's constant pressure up the middle I think we can contain Brady and have a shot at winning.

Outcome Belichick/Brady exploit McCain/Harris and it gets ugly early. A few garbage touchdowns thrown by back-up Matt Schaub make the final score not look as bad.

Pats 41 Texans 24

If we keep it under a 30 point gap I'll be ecstatic.

I hope it is really close and Brady throws 5 INTs but we still lose due to Dobson (NBT MVP) going off.

We are going to get murdered. Crying or Very sad

Our only hope is if the Pats come out unfocused and shaky after the huge comeback win against the Broncos. Brady torched Harris and McCain last season. We can expect more of the same especially if Kareem isnt playing a 3rd straight game.

So what has gone wrong with your team this year? I see that your defense is near the top on yards given up but your offense has turned the ball over a lot.

Tank for Teddy went into overdrive.

Terrible QBs.

Terrible RT.

Terrible DBs.

Terrible HC/OC.

Terrible OLBs.

Pick 6s.

They don't need a QB so they would probably trade it away.

Any team who gets the number 1 pick has to think QB

...unless you drafted Matt Ryan 2nd overall in 2007 and signed a contract extension 4 months ago.
