Good read. I also do not think it would be in the Texans interest to get into a shootout with New England. & though he mentions weakness in their secondary & says games are "never" won or loss by the ground game, I think we will limit their secondary's influence on the game with a heavy dose of ground & pound.
Ben Tates heavy running style is exactly what we need to see against their run defense.
I also found it very interesting that every time he mentioned how good the Patriots were in a particular stat he followed that the Texans were right there.
But when he talked about their defensive stats, the Texans were far ahead of the Pats.
I think most people are going to be disappointed in this game, most are expecting a shoot-out. It won't be.
