There are an infinite number of ways the Texans can beat the Patriots and there are an infinite number of ways the Patriots can beat the Texans.

If we can get Arian going. If we can get the short passing game going. If we can hit some long balls. If we change up our defense and throw something at Brady that makes him think long enough for our defense to get to him.

You act like the Patriots are infallible and you have for years but they aren't. They haven't won a Super Bowl in a long time regardless of their HOF Coach and QB. This Patriots team lost to the Seahawks, the Cardinals, the Ravens, and the Niners and let the Jets take them to overtime. They CAN be beaten.

What pisses me off is giving up and waving a white flag. "How on earth could we possibly beat the all-mighty Patriots!?" This is one of the reasons (along with moving) why I didn't come to this board over the past month. We go 12-4 and people are acting like we're the worst team in the freaking league, with the worst coach since Bill Peterson and the worst QB since Cody Carlson.

Screw the Patriots. Screw the Broncos.

We're the freaking Texans, we're a play-off team now, and we're in this fight whether you like it or not. If you can't enjoy having a winning team -- and being 12 and freaking 4 is being a winning team -- then go root for someone else. Hell, go be a Cowboy fan.
Spot on TPN.

We are rightfully underdogs but the MB has been almost unbearable.
