The Patriots and Texans meet Monday night in a game that should have a significant impact on the AFC playoff race. Houston has a two-game lead on the Patriots for the first overall seed, but a loss would cut that margin to one and leave the Texans no more margin for error.

It's been a long time since the Patriots have been looking up at a young upstart team in the standings, and there's no question the Texans are a talented bunch with the kind of weapons to potentially exploit New England's weaknesses on both sides of the ball.

It's a fantastic matchup that should be a great game to watch.

Here are our 10 keys to the game for the Patriots.
