All anyone can talk about is the upcoming game against the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football.
It's one of the two toughest games left on the schedule, and perhaps their toughest game all season.

There are plenty of matchups to be excited about, particularly the Patriots' No. 1-ranked third-down offense (52.6 percent conversions) against the Texans' No. 1-ranked third-down defense (28.4 percent).

Perhaps the Patriots' No. 4 offensive passer rating (102.3) vs. the Texans' No. 3 defensive passer rating (75.6). Maybe the Texans' propensity to blitz (send extra rushers 43.9 percent of opponent's drop-backs) against teams' tendencies not to blitz Brady (extra rushers sent on 25.3 percent of his drop-backs).

Should be a hell of a game.
I hope it turns out to be a classic in our favor.

Def one of the Top games in the entire league this season thus far. Now we cant determine whether it will be a classic until after we see the results of the game first

I can almost gurantee all the BSPN "experts" will pick New England, that is the darling team of the NFL. Sure they have been good over the last few years, but it has been a while since they have been GREAT. And i think we were GREAT last season until we lost Schaub and AJ, then we were ok. This season i think we are GREAT.

So i expect nothing less than a 12-1 record after Monday Night.
