    As I think I'm the only Brazilian in this forum,I found it interesting to tell you, as the Brazilian press is treating this game,Patriots X Texans. Here ESPN has the exclusive transmission rights for the NFL for many years.They transmit 3 games each Sunday, and even the MNF.The teams with the highest number of fans are Packers, Patriots, Giants and Cowboys.So the Texans games are rarely transmitted.I watch the Texans game by the internet. the commentators here unfortunately are very partials.In the regular season game against the Patsies,the ESPN commentators had orgasms with the Brady throws. I've watched almost the entire game with the SAP button activated. Now,the brazilian NFL sites are saying that Ridley and Woodhead are better than Foster and Tate.Oh well.Many are saying "Houston has no chance!". I'm the only guy defending the Texans there.I can take the risk and say I'm the only Texans fan in Brazil. The only TRUE fan,at least. Football is a sport that is growing considerably in Brazil, every year, new people are watching.

    So,here some Brazilian sites about NFL

    That's it, I think it interesting to tell you how Brazilians are treating this game

    Hola! Always good to see Texan fans all over the world, here's hoping you get to listen to the talking heads next week talk about how the Broncos or Ravens will demolish us. Go Texans!

    That is the beginning and the end of the Portuguese I know. Nice to see a Brasilian fan!

    Thanks for sharing those sites! I've looked at them all and translated them. Some really great reads in there. It's nice to get a slightly different perspective.

    theconcussion? I love that! Ain't no pussyfootin' around in Brazil!

    I would be very careful with what you read at oquarterback as they once called the Cardinals the best team in the NFL. D'oh.

    GO TEXANS!!!

    ^^ She's Australian

    I went to SnapFutbolAmericano's game preview. LOL.

    He gives the Texans' running game an 8.0 grade and the Pats an 8.5. And he apparently did so because the Patriots have 2089 yards rushing while the Texans have 2077. He also somehow came to the conclusion that the receiving corps are a "technical draw" at 8.5.

    Welcome Brazil!! Happy to hear the sport is gaining popularity down there. I can understand how different it is to "soccer" in many ways and seems like it has no flow.... but once you start to grasp the true depth of the game it will hook you for life. And its easy to forget just how big, fast, strong, and athletic these guys really are. Almost inhuman for a 6-7 320 lb man to be able to move that quickly.

    Hold down the Texans Fort! You are the king of the castle my man.
