Houston Texans at New England Patriots: NFL Playoffs Preview & Predictions

The New England Patriots thrashed Houston in their Week 14 meeting in Foxborough. Can the Brady Bunch make it 2-for-2?

Houston was able to beat Cincinnati thanks to a big game from Arian Foster and its defensive line. Neither showed up in its regular-season tilt against the Patriots last month. Despite their playoff win against the Bengals in the Wild Card Round, these Texans still look like the same shaky outfit that lost three of their last four regular-season games. 

New England, once again, appears poised to make its sixth AFC title-game appearance in the last 10 seasons, a stunning (but not really) streak of excellence. Tom Brady threw four touchdown passes in that Week 14 game, and that was without tight end Rob Gronkowski. After recovering from a broken arm, Gronk is expected to be available for this game.
