    Ok this used to be my thing..... so if one has already been made fine, BUT never again ;).

    The Texans are back fully loaded and healthy, so I see a big upset in this one with our Defense dominating Brady. And WTF didn't we play them in New England last year as well, when Watson had us very close to a W ?

    Texans 35
    Patriots 17

    Watson 3 Total TDs
    Defense with a Pick 6
    Watt with 2 Sacks.

    Yes yes i'm a homer we all know that, with that said I haven't been very active lately due to the boredom of the off season. I hope everyone has been good !

    I posted my prediction of
    Texans 34
    Patriots 17
    In my weekly game thread.
    I'll stick to that. Pretty close to yours.

    It probably feels that way, because NRG has been the Pats practice bubble.

    Fairness has not been in the league for a while.

    The refs has been the instrument in shifting momentum for the team the league has deemed worthy.

    We are not the story line not yet. If this was week 10 and were the hot tamale then yeah we might get the calls at Gillette.

    For now.... week one? the refs are gonna CHEAT US and CHEAT US BIG TIME.


    No more honor since Goodell took over this league. More story lines and holly wood stuff. Goodness sake this league cant even own up that CTE exist.

    Oh, there it is! I was hoping your prediction thread would show up, EllisUnit. Please convey my greetings to your good-looking family. Meanwhile I already fought back the temptation to pick the Texans and predicted Expatriots 27, Toros 24 in the other thread. I'll stick to that because of home field disadvantage.

    Predict? I have no frigging idea what the Texans are going to do. Predicting the Texans is like predicting which direction a frightened squirrel will run.

    However I do believe that Watson will throw 3 TDs or more. Watson is a TD machine when he's on.

    45-14....Texans. Don't celebrate fans, the Patriots always have a rough go in Week 1.

    31 - 24 ........ Texans. QB GOAT vs DW4 aint so bad on our side. I like our DL, LBs, Safeties, maybe they get DB's and RAC is the man, so defense goes to Texans. Both OLs have major issues. TE, Gronk is a stud, we have more depth, receivers clearly Texans, RBs, JAG on both sides. Special teams usually Pats. So defense makes the plays we missed last year, Honey Badger wont drop the game winning Int in his hands
