Just do whatever the heck works against whoever the heck we're playing.
Actually, the Patriots ran the ball more than the Texans (523 att vs 508 for the Texans). They also passed the ball more than the Texans, but that's because they run more plays. 45% of their plays were runs. 47% of Texans plays were runs. Maybe the Patriots are also a run first team?
