The Texans might still have the best record in the AFC, but they can't be feeling good about themselves after a 42-14 shellacking at the hands of the New England Patriots. The Patriots haven't lost a game in the second half of the season in two years, but the Texans' absolute inability to move the ball or stop New England's passing attack has to be cause for concern, especially considering they might meet again in the postseason. Monday night's game might have signalled a change in the AFC's favorite to win the Super Bowl.

Is Brady the MVP?
