Schaub will probably come in and have the game of his life. Our special teams will block kicks and house kickoffs. Our secondary will pick 6 Tom Brady multiple times. Kubiak will coach the game of his life. Everything will come together on a meaningless game and I will be knocked out of A LOT of money and the Texans will lose draft position. The Texans will always find a way to piss me off and this would be the royal slap in the face/kick in the nuts...
I'm not crazy am I? There's something in the air about this week's game that screams Texans win. Lose to Jaguars and Raiders and beat Tom Brady and the Patriots coming off a tough overtime game to give Kubiak/Schaub (Keenum) a chance to hold their job and provide false hope for next year. It's just so classic Texans... but how do I not pick the Patriots to beat them!?!
I don't know how much your survivor pool pays out but if you want to cover yourself put some money on the Texans moneyline (+$350) so you win either way; if the Texans or Pats win. But truthfully, I think the pats win easy. Good luck.
