    Huge game for us. This game is a measuring stick and carries huge playoff implications (seedings etc)

    It'll be tough with all our injuries but its not like the texans don't have injuries of their own.

    Regardless I think that we NEED to win this game!

    I honestly totally expect us to win this game. Hopefully the weather dips down a bit up here too because it hasn't been that cold enough the past few days that it would give the Pats a home field advantage

    I just looked on weather.com for a preliminary report. They have it at 39 degrees and 40% chance of rain (which if colder will turn to snow) for 12/10 after nightfall. Definitely a lot colder than Houston and the dome.

    Week 14: Texans(11-1) vs. Pats(9-3)-The Patriots will Foster Arian

    Going to the game this week with my sisterfor her birthday. Should be a great game. Going to cook steaks wings and shrimp with some nice cold IPA beers.

    This will be my fifth game I've attended and I've always catch the Ws. Here is to 5-0

    Should be a hard win to pull off but I got a good feeling. The d is getting better with each passing week. I feel like we are being very aggressive compared to the past few years and we need to stay that way.

    The O has been very impressive minus a few games like last week but a home game should pump them up.

    Need to be firing on all cylinders to win and I'm praying we will be.

    Pats 30
    Houston 20

    Pray for snow!

    I'm gonna be most fixated on how the run defense does, in both of these next games really. It went from being a huge area of strength early on in the season to being pretty average and at times poor since the game in London.

    I'm excited.

    Yeah, the colder the better for us afaic.

    Shocked at the Tackles leaders. Mayo has twice as many as Watt
    He needs to average 20 tackles/game to break the single season tackles record of 195.

    Not that surprising considering Mayo plays the tackle dominant LB position and Watt is a DE...

    Mayo is a tackling machine and it goes unnoticed by the league every season.

    Honestly if we are going to make it out of the AFC in the playoffs it is probably going to be though Houston and having Talib to match up on Johnson really helps.

    The thing that sucks here is if we lose, not only is the #1 seed gone, the #2 probably is gone too. Meaning no bye week to start. If we end up at the #4, we might have to play at home, then Denver, then Houston - that's probably too much to ask.

    Winning this one and losing to SF keeps the #2 as a solid chance.

    Losing both, it's time to start checking the draft boards.


    6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”

    Some jerks never learn.....

    This x infinity. Huge playoff implications in this game. If Pats can win out, Houston gets caught napping in one of the Indy games & Baltimore loses another (Giants?) Pats get #1 seed. But a loss and it's what Bags said.

    I don't think there is any chance we end up at the #4 spot.


    I see New England coming out of the AFC, relatively easily with the exception of the AFC Championship Game which will be tough no matter who the opponent is.

    I have said, and will continue to say it. I do not fear Houston or Baltimore, or really anyone in the AFC. These are our biggest threats and my assessments, granted they are biased because I am a New England fan.

    #1.) Texans (By Default)

    They are not exactly playoff heroes. They gave up 257 yards to Andy Dalton (Rookie) AT HOME last year. Tom Brady will shred their overrated secondary. Stopping Arian Foster is impossible, but we have stopped Ray Rice multiple times. I feel like Andre Johnson is our biggest mismatch, because Talib has the tendency to be over-agressive and get torched. Either way, the Texans do not, and will not (barring a beat down on Monday Night) scare me.

    #2.) Ravens

    I know Baltimore basically beat us last year, but that team continues to prove that no matter how talented they are, they will always find a way to lose the game they need to win. No amount of injuries can make up for that pathetic performance against Pittsburgh. However, ANYTHING could happen if we have to travel to Baltimore.

    #3.) Broncos

    The Broncos are riding high with Peyton, and I am actually happy for Peyton after despising him (only for the over the top acclaim he receives while Brady does not). But the Broncos have lost to us, and Brady/BB always find a way to defeat him.

    #4.) Steelers

    The Steelers are depleted by injuries, most notably Big Ben. I am actually from Pittsburgh so I hear and read all the reports to stay up to date. Ben is not healthy and he will not be healthy until after this season. One solid hit and he could be in serious trouble.

    But if he was, the Steelers do pose a legitimate threat to New England. Their press coverage worked wonders on us last season, but with the amount of injuries they have on the defensive and offensive side, I don't see Pittsburgh beating us at Foxboro.

    Pats lose to Houston or SF thats 4 losses, if Denver wins out they end up with 3 losses, Baltimore losses to Denver but win their other 3 games they have 4 losses and a tiebreaker over the Pats = Pats end up with the #4 seed. Possible? Yes, Probable? We shall see.

    Yeah it is possible.

    But Baltimore winning 3 of 4 is not.

    @ Redskins
    Broncos
    Giants
    @ Bengals

    There is ZERO chance they win 3 of those 4.
