Here's how ESPNBoston.com's experts see Sunday's New England Patriots-Houston Texans game (1 p.m. ET, CBS) playing out. What's your prediction? Leave your pick in the comments section.
|Patriots 30, Texans 17
This Texan team is a prime example of how individual talent is meaningless in the NFL if a coaching staff can't get them playing as a team. They've had some hard times down there in Houston and I see the Patriots coming away with a victory.
|Patriots 24, Texans 20
The Patriots should win and keep things rolling. I could also envision it being a bit tougher than anticipated.
|PATRIOTS 27, Texans 13
These two teams are seemingly going in opposite directions, but the Texans aren't devoid of talent on either side of the ball. Ultimately, however, an average Houston offense won't have enough to stick with the Patriots, who can expose the back half of the Texans defense and score their ninth victory of the season by a comfortable margin.
