Houston Texans vs New England Patriots Preview
Tomorrow the Houston Texans face the New England Patriots in the final game of the Divisional round.
It looks like it is going to be a slightly unbalanced match; the Patriots have odds of 1/4 to win while the best on the Texans is 15/4.
In week 14 the Patriots beat the Texans 42-14 in Foxborough and the Patriots are the No. 2 seed for the fourth time. Furthermore, the Patriots have made the Super Bowl in each of the last three seasons and won it twice.
The Patriots’ Tom Brady is 16-6 in 22 career playoff starts; this makes him joint first for the most wins by a starting quarterback in the history of NFL playoffs.
On the other hand, he is 6-6 in his past 12 postseason starts having won his fist 10.
Last week the Texans’ defence looked very good, they held the Bengals to 0-for9 on third down. Nonetheless, the Patriots are clearly the stronger team and it would be a major shock if they were to loose this weekend.
