It's because of the fact that the defense was playing so well that would lead you to go for it inside the ten there.

They more than likely would not have moved it. They punt it back to you and you start in their territory again.

Field goals will get you beat.

Maybe he kicked field goals because we were playing the Bengals and that was what was needed to win the game?

No one is more prepared than Bellichick. He's pretty incredible in that. I like Kubiak but you dont hear stuff like this from him. Bill knows our players. I hope we come out firing on all cylinders.

From the linked article:

"Asked if he saw anything different from Houston in Saturday's wild card win that he didn't see in December, Belichick said "nothing revolutionary"

Par for the course wouldn't you say?

I guess he wanted the Bengals to be driving for the winning score with under 5 minutes remaining? Make no mistake, if we kick >50% field goals in the red zone next week, we won't be within two touchdowns by the fourth quarter.

Next weeks a different game all together. I'm sure Kubiak will go for it if the need arises. He's not going to do it, just to do it.

I know we're expecting to have to score 30 just to keep pace. But the Patriots have put up stinkers as well & if we lose by 3 because we passed on two field goals.... y'all will crucify the man.

Damned if you do..... you know the rest.

Let the game unfold & respond accordingly.

Default Re: Patriots ready for the Texans

does anyone feel if Kjax picks up that fumble inside the 5 & either falls on it or picks it up clean & returns it for a TD it's NOT a blow out? That would have least stemmed momentum & put Texans back in the game.

so Texans need to capitalize this time around in turnover category. Bellichick used brooms then Kubiak needs to use clubs. Antonio Smith needs to reach in his bag of tricks & teach Kareem & company ways of the ninja

I honestly think the only play there was to pick it up clean & return it for 7. That's the only thing that would have "turned the tides"

I feel the way Schaub & the offense were playing, recovering the ball there was going to turn into a safety or a pick 6 & the spiraling & butt whup'n would have been worse.

At the time this happened, the Texans had only had one possession (which did include a first down). The Texans second possession (immediately after the resulting TD) was a 59 yard drive (granted, ending in a Schaub int). The idea that keeping 7 points off the board on New England's first possession couldn't have been beneficial to the Texans is absurd. The idea it would have made it worse is beyond absurd. Hopefully there's sarcasm in your post that I'm simply not seeing.

Houston Texans have scored just one touchdown in their last 14 quarters. 3 1/2 games.

Good Luck in NE.

Pats fan here....

Actually that's exactly what SF didn't do. They didn't try to establish the run to set up the pass. They not only passed on early downs they went vertical often.

Before the first NE\HOU game I told everybody here that if Kubiak had the sack to go vertical on first down and mix up what the Pats were expecting they would win the game. If he did what he usually does they would lose and perhaps even big which happened, I never expected that big. If he follows the business as usual format barring your defense having a game for the ages and turning the Patriots over 3 or 4 times there's no chance Houston pulls the upset.

If he attempts what SF did they have a shot and a good one. Even if it doesn't work I'll give him credit for being creative and having the guts to do it. If he goes status quo you would have been better off losing to the Bengals and landing Reid. Maybe Chip Kelly can still be talked into the right NFL job and I'd consider Houston that job with all the other talent.

Sorry but that's an absurd comment. Don't you think every team for the past 6 years have thought the same thing. Yet in all those years and all those attempts at big hits, the results have been 6 years of 100+ catches and 1200+ yds receiving. '

This remark is right up there with. "we need to get pressure on Brady" for the "Keen sense of the obvious" award.

You have a point but this isn't the smack talk forum. I am sure over on the Pats MB there are folks saying we need to limit Foster, AJ and JJ Watt.

When was the last time the Ravens played well in back to back games?

How many play off teams have a 3 game loosing streak on their record?

How many teams left in the play offs have a loss to Andy Dalton & the Cincinnati Bengals?

Raise your hand if Denver beat you in the regular season....

Raise your hand if Marvin Lewis out-coached your team....

We need to pop your receivers right off the line to screw up Brady's timing.........something we didn't do last game........and it contributed heavily to Brady's quick throw completions......and our downward spiral.

i sure did see brady getting off the ground alot the last time we played, Watt hit him 4-5 times. No sacks though but no RTP penalties either, if our secondary can play a little closer and cover for 1 more second (we had our 4th and 5th string CBs starting last game we played BTW) Then brady is going to have a rough rough day.

Our healthy secondary will be alot better VS yall this time even with ur porn star TE returning.
