The Night Game, Part IV

http://i50.tinypic.com/35ar5f4.jpg

With a two-game lead on the rest of the AFC, the Houston Texans could go a long way toward proving they're the team to beat this week.

The New England Patriots, though, certainly aren't ready to concede the conference they've represented in the Super Bowl five times in the last 11 years.

These powers each bring a six-game winning streak into Monday night's showdown in Foxborough, where Houston will put its unblemished road record on the line against the AFC East champions.

The Texans (11-1) and Patriots (9-3) have met only three times before - once at New England, where Houston lost 40-7 in 2006 - but a new rivalry could be about to develop, with the chance of a more important matchup in the upcoming playoffs.

"You've got one of the all-time great leaders in football from a coaching standpoint and a quarterback standpoint," Texans coach Gary Kubiak said of Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. "You know you're going to have to raise your level of play and play as good as you can possibly play. That's why we do what we do. It is a big challenge, but I know our football team will be looking forward to it."

In the franchise's first postseason appearance last season, Houston came close to earning a date with the Patriots in the AFC title game, but lost to Baltimore in the divisional round. Now, with Matt Schaub healthy and star defensive end J.J. Watt helping his unit overcome a slew of injuries, the Texans have taken another step forward.

They've shown their mettle with six road wins in as many trips, including games at Denver and Chicago.

MORE PICKS: http://challengegames.nfl.com/pickem/experts

What I Want To See:

Remember those 30 attempt games with Arian? Yeah, those...

Look, I'm one of the folks that loves giving Arian rest. That said, this is such a huge game, that I'm willing to look the other way. Pound the rock like it's Chicago all over again.

Attack Brady in every which way

Bring heat with 5 or 6, rush 4/drop 7...etc. Make his night a hassle and disrupt the timing with his weapons as much as possible. Something I've noticed in the past is that his OL can be rattled by a disruptive front-four, so let's get to them as well.

Test their pass D (deep)

Take some shots up top when the opportunities present themselves. Dre, Walter (yes, even him), you name it. Let's get the Pats on their heels with the run and some bootleg/waggle action.

Stuff the run and make NE one-dimensional

This is already a tough offense to deal with. The LAST thing we need is for Ridley and Vereen to get off and make it tougher to try and handle. This is a really good (shocking to most, I'm sure) run offense this year, so stopping this run will be KEY tonight.



Last night game of the regular season, fam! Ladies and Gents, this is indeed a huge game, as we all know. That said, just because it's big, does NOT mean goals have changed. 1-0 every week, that's the goal! Let's go into Mass., get this W, get closer to a bye/home field throughout and show the nation what the Baddest Men Alive can do IN ENEMY TERRITORY. LET'S MUTHA****IN' GO, TEXANS!!!!

Unproven - Broncos, Detroit, Bears on the road, stomping the Ravens at home. If beating 3 AFC and 1 NFC division leader is unproven then i guess the Patriots have yet to play yet.... Joke of an article. No research or thought went into his blog.

I want to blow them out. Everyone is saying it's going to be close or the Pats are going to blow us out. I want to see us put up 40 on the Pats and win big. Shut everyone up. I want it to be over by halftime. I'm tired of these 911 inducing wins

I'm actually surprised Shaughnessy wrote this. He's usually Mr Negative. I should also point out he's a baseball writer who's been allowed to become a columnist writing on all things sports. Most Boston sports fans cannot stand him myself included. I would put zero stock into anything he writes and trust me 95% of the Patriots fan base is not taking this game for granted. We know the Texans are for real.

Anybody discounting the Texans for having close calls vs the Jags and Lions and not doing so for the Pats with the Jets (first game OT) or Buffalo the second game isn't looking at the big picture. Good teams win those games and bad teams lose them.

On the weather front it's 55 and raining this morning. No idea if the rain will stop but the reports of snow are bogus. It's not happening.

Good luck. I hope it's an epic game with no injuries.

He's a baseball guy. I am quite shocked he wrote something like that. My only take on it is that if the Pats lay an egg, he can say it was written tongue-in-cheek. He does take a swipe at us fans and the owner, so that makes me think he is hoping they lose. He's definitely an agenda driven guy.

As a baseball first guy, Shaughnessy's antics are well-known to me. His goofy ass was saying how the Sox basically had Game 162 won during that rain delay at Baltimore. I don't mind him, but sometimes, he needs to shut it up.

Would they consider putting him on Hernandez?I have no clue what Phillips will do. He tends to come up with some crazy combos and sometimes they fail. Alan Ball against Calvin Johnson was fail. When Kareem Jackson asked to switch to Johnson it worked out a lot better.

Jackson should be able to cover Lloyd. Our 3rd corner (who will be our 5th or 6th on the depth chart due to McClain & Ball injuries) would take on whoever else (other than Welker) gets on the field. I'd expect Quin & Manning to share duties on the TEs and backs.

If I had a choice, I'd have Joseph shadow Welker 80%+ of the time. Joseph is the quickest & fastest DB we have. He won't be able to stop Welker but would be the best to limit the big plays. JMO.

Joseph is always on the #1, and a combo of the safeties (Quin or Manning) cover the TE. I expect to see mostly GQ on Hernandez. We dodged a bullet with Gronk out, we don't have anyone that can match up with him.

Everlong
12-10-2012, 03:54 PM
Thanks for the replies. I think a LB on Hernandez is a win for the Pats. He's more of a WR than a TE. I think Joseph outside on Lloyd and then you bracket Welker and if you're going to put a LB on Hernandez you give him help. The issue becomes what type of help because he can run the seam or option in or out. I believe he's going to be the biggest matchup issue. I think putting a safety or nickle on him is the better play. I feel the same way about your passing game. They'll move coverage to take Johnson out of the game but I'm afraid it's going to be at the expense of Daniels lighting them up. I don't like that matchup for the Pats at all.

12-10-2012, 03:55 PM
I would start with Harris on Welker, Joseph on Loyd and Kareem on who ever the other outside reciever is.

If Harris gets eaten alive after the first series or two then I'd switch Joseph to him.

Pats strength are with the TEs and Welker plus the backs.

Without the Gronk, they don't match up very well with the Texans.

On paper at least.

Brady will have to play at the top of his game, IMHO, and we all know that he can .

Obviously, on the Texans fans' perspective, he won't be able to.

I wouldn't agree that they don't matchup well even without Gronk. It really comes down to can the Texans get pressure without a heavy dose of the blitz. If they blitz at their normal rate Brady is going to hit some huge plays. Stallworth is the one matchup that's a throw away. I wouldn't be shocked if he goes catchless. Brady has played this defense many times when Wade was with SD and Dallas and the Steelers and Packers play similar styles and he always had success against them. I don't expect either team to complete dominate on either side of the ball.

I honestly don't know how to explain this.

I've timed the QB's time in the pocket.
I understand the Texans bring more blitz.
I understand when there's max-protect.
The Texans win the trench war by not allowing the opponent's QB much time in the pocket.
Sure, if Brady plays on top of his game, he can beat it.
It's not going to be without challenge.

How do you quantify that to make the case in either direction? Unless a back has a certain history that's extraordinary good or bad in bad weather it's tough to make a case.

I'm only speaking to the runners themselves and not what traffic they might need to run through, but with Foster's patient running style and smooth cuts I believe/hope so.

I honestly don't know how to explain this.

I've timed the QB's time in the pocket.
I understand the Texans bring more blitz.
I understand when there's max-protect.
The Texans win the trench war by not allowing the opponent's QB much time in the pocket.
Sure, if Brady plays on top of his game, he can beat it.
It's not going to be without challenge.

There won't be any max protect. It comes down to Brady getting rid of the ball in second or less while spreading the field with receivers. You can't double them all and blitz. If you send 5 that means you double Welker but Hernamdez and Woodhead are singled up. You make it sound too easy. It's not going to be. Rogers, Manning and Stafford have all spread the field with success. You're not to hold Brady to 17 points or something like that. You may outscore him. I have less confidence on that side of the ball for good reason.

Nobody and nobody can sustain our 5-man pass rush one on one.
They even have problem with the sixth and seventh guy in protection.

Sure, a good QB can beat it from time to time.
It's an exciting defense to watch, unlike, hmm. You know. That defense.

You thought that those guys had an easy time; none of them did.

Rodgers had a whale of a game, you know, almost like you have that powder from Harry Potter. Give him a lot of props. If we lose to the Pats for the same reason, I will tip my hat to Brady, too!

The last time the Patriots ran any max protect from probably in 2008 when Brady was out. Will they keep a TE in at times yes but that's much different. Teams like the Dolphins will put two receivers out and have 8 blockers which is much different.

The teams that have had success against you have spread you out. Jacksonville had success with it. Granted Joseph was out so if he plays and is effective it will go a long way to suring up the secondary but there's a reason the Pats average 35+ points per game and that's with 5 games against teams in the top 12 in defensive scoring.

I've never seen a QB that can decide which of 4 or 5 potential receivers to throw to quicker than Brady. Peyton and Rodgers are great, but still procedural in their reads, while Brady seems instinctive. I think that capability might be the biggest advantage that the Patriots have over our defensive, plus the fact that our LBs may not be up to the task tonight.

I think that Mercilus is a liability, in that he isn't going to be able to get to Brady fast enough, and he is weak vs the run and pass. If we play fewer LBs and more DBs tonight we may have a better shot.

Almost game time - finally! Let's go!

He rarely has the ball for more than 3 seconds and often it's less than 2. Any way we're spinning our wheels here so we'll just have to find out in 2 very long hours.

So let me get this straight.

Weak ass call on Duane Brown, we still get the first down on the next play.

3rd and 6, they don't call p.i. on the Pats. We punt.

No holding call on the Pats return team.

On the Pats' 3rd and 6, they DO get the p.i. call on us even though it was within the 5 yards allowable.

Yeah, that really sucked balls.

Rockets making a much better effort of it than last game.

FWIW, I was referring to the Texans thread over there being bigger than here.

This team has shown it is resilient and can come back.

Even if they don't, they have shown they can bounce back from a loss.

Let's save the end of the world stuff till, a loss would be the end of the world/season.
