The Patriots have run 883 plays to the Texans' 846 this season, which, at first glance, hardly seems consequential. What's an extra three-point-something snaps per game? But it has translated into 10 more offensive touchdowns for New England (9-3), the NFL's highest-scoring team. And never mind Houston has held the football on average for 3 1/2 additional minutes each week.
