To be the man, you gotta beat the man.

Jus' sayin', before anyone gets butt hurt over the heads picking the Pats over us.

I'm actually enjoying this. I feel better when the heads pick the opponent over us. The only thing that has me feeling "funny" is that Lombardi went against the grain & picked the Texans.

I love that I get to watch the game while I'm at work.

Football season is awesome over hear because I've got the SUnday night game on Monday morning and Monday Night Football on Tuesday. Plus the Thursday night game on Friday morning. My work week moves pretty quick from September to December.

The Texans are 2nd in the league in scoring. I guess no team lights up the scoreboard "consistently" except the Pats? Some of New Englands big numbers stem from keeping their starters in the game when the outcome is in hand, and running up the score. Kubiak and the Texans prefer to milk clock and use the running game. Doesn't make the Texans any less dominant. This game will be hard for the Pats, as well.

Exactly. It doesn't matter if you're a Patriot or Texan fan, either side should be worried. This will be a difficult game for both teams.

3.5 isnt really that bad, most home teams get 3 anyway. Did you honestly expect us to roll into Foxboro and be favorites?


Lets just go out there and handle business and get back home to recover.

Unless the cold front moves in much quicker than expected I don't see it getting nearly cold enough to snow. I live 25 miles from the stadium and it was in the low 40's last night at the same time and today and tomorrow are supposed to be warm. I think you and I have chated on Pats talk.

And honestly while I think the snow would give the Pats a major advantage in this game I don't want it. I think this is a great test and I want to see how they do straight up vs the Texans on both offense and defense. I hope it doesn't rain either.

Why? You know how many Texans are from snow states? K-Dub, Jj Watt, & a slew of Texans grew up playing in that stuff.

The Patriots have an amazing track record in the snow. They blew out Tenn 59-0, an AZ team that went to the SB 49-7 or something close to that and a Bears team that went to the NFCCG 36-7 in Chicago. They just know what works.

History shows a pattern of success under a given circumstance. Regardless it's not worth the time to debate since it's not going to snow any way.

Well from a historical perspective every time the Texans go some place cold pundits state it is an advantage to their opponents. Oddly enough though, the Texans have been very good in cold weather games. Schaub holds the passing yards record in Lambeau Field from a game which was the coldest of the season.

I down played the rain and temps in the 40 as any type of advantage for the Pats because I honestly think there is no advantage. If it were to snow I honestly think there is an advantage. I'm not being a homer. I'm just giving my perspective. As I said I think these teams are dead even and I'd give the home team a slight advantage no matter where the game is. If we play in Houston in the playoffs I think the Texans are the same 3.5 point favorite the Pats are at home.

Heck I would give an edge to the Patriots in the snow or very cold (I don't consider what I have heard as forecasts as very cold). I was just saying people often assume the Texans will be bad in cold weather and it hasn't proven to be the case.

I agree it's a bad assumption. Some warm weather teams don't travel well that's a fact but thinking it's always true is stupid. It was about the same temp in Chicago. The difference was that grass field vs the field turf at Gillette. It will still be a fast track even with a little rain.

Why? The cold would nullify the advantage that is Tom Brady and Houston is built to run the ball and play defense. I would think the snow/cold would be a huge advantage for the Texans in this game.

Welcome to the board, Everlong.

No matter what, I do feel like the Pats have an advantage if the game is play under a good snow like that Cardinals game.

The Cards looked very slow like they were stuck in mud or something.

Anyhow, here's to a good game and may the best team win.
