Weekly Patriots chat at noon

Every Thursday on ESPNBoston.com, there is a Patriots chat in the early afternoon. Today's chat kicks off at 12 p.m. ET, and questions can be submitted in advance.

One question is which player might be an X-factor in the playoff game between the Patriots and Texans. In our weekly ESPNBoston.com podcast with Tedy Bruschi, these were the choices:

Bruschi: Patriots C Ryan Wendell; Texans S Glover Quin

Reiss: Patriots RB Danny Woodhead, Texans LB Brooks Reed

Join in the chat to share your thoughts.
