It's an interesting matchup. We're beat up defensively, they've got some key pieces out on their offense. We're 1-2 all-time against the Patriots for whatever that's worth. We lost to them back in the Capers era in OT the year they beat the Panthers in the Super Bowl here and Kubiak has gone 1-1 against them. We won here, they won there.

I've been looking at this date for weeks and thinking about playing the Patriots in New England. They're good but so are we. We get a lot of crap about not playing anybody but the Patriots feed on their division of crappy opponents just like every division leader. They talk a lot about how they're rolling so many points up on other teams but their recent win streak is against the Jets, Rams, Bills, Colts, Jets, and Dolphins.

I'm not going to say we will necessarily win this. I will say that we without any doubt can win this.

Next Monday Night the 11-1 Houston Texans are going to Gillette Stadium to face the 9-3 New England Patriots. Primetime.

Playing a first ballot Hall of Fame quarterback that's at the top of his game. Jon Gruden in the booth calling it. JJ Watt with national spotlight against a top offense on the road in his defensive player of the year campaign. Matt Schaub ready to engage in a shootout with Tom freaking Brady.

If you can't get excited for this game you aren't a fan of FOOTBALL!!!

Exactly! Wins ON THE ROAD against two playoff contenders in Denver and Chicago, and a complete asskicking at home against the Ravens. I am gobsmacked by all the talk lately about the Patriots being the most dominant team in the NFL and how tough they are to beat.

WRONG.

They are quite beatable because they simply aren't the complete team the Houston Texans field on Sundays. The script needs flipping. At 11-1 and a resume of big wins on their schedule, including two crazy OT wins in a matter of four days, the Texans strength of schedule credentials should not be questioned. The question should be this:

Who has New England beaten?

Denver at home, that's it. They've lost to Seattle, Arizona, and Baltimore.

Do not fear the Patriots, they are very mortal.

We learned last year, no one is going to cry for us & our injuries. That's not going to change this year. I'm sure there is someone, somewhere marginalizing our 11-1 record right now & they'll marginalize our victory if we manage to defeat the Patriots next week.

I think we're definitely going to learn something about our boys next Monday. So will the Patriots, so will the NFL.

I expect a fight to the end. Nothing less.

Ponder is no Brady. If we don't notch up the play of both our offense and our defense (pass rush and secondary), Brady will run up the score and try to run away with total points that this week's offense won't be able to keep up with. Hope that this is not the case. Even if we get a healthy JJo back, it looks like we will have lost even more players to injury this week. Kubiak will need a more creative O play calling to keep us in the game and get us out of Monday without carrying our asses back to Houston. JMHO.

A good, rational post. I can buy into that.

I think we can win as well. I think we can beat any team on any day on any field.

As far as the Pats on Monday night prime time I hope we don't get smoked. If the team that played today shows up (our defense flying around like crazy) and we can track 4 quarters of Texan offense we can win.

Go Texans!

I honestly feel pretty good about this game for some reason. The Patriots haven't played a good offense in a long time. People have been talking about how well their defense has been performing, but the truth is they've just been benefactor of turnovers. The Colts offense moved the ball on the, but shot themselves in the foot.

If we can jump out to an early lead I like our chances. Stopping Hernandez is going to be tough though. That's the one matchup that is gonna give us fits. Something tells me the Texans were probably game planning some this week for the Pats in advance. I think we'll come out ready to play.

He didn't say the most important. He said the biggest game.


Think about it.

This game will have more of a play-off feel than any of our previous games, against the reigning AFC Champs, when they're still pretty good. They are clearly the #2 team in the conference.... arguably #1.
