Patriots To Host Texans In Divisional Round
Following the Pittsburgh Steelers' beat down of the Miami Dolphins Sunday, the Houston Texans, who sailed past the beleaguered Oakland Raiders Saturday, are officially on their way to New England.
As the Patriots prepare for their divisional round home game, scheduled for Next Saturday at 8:15pm ET, the team can fully invest their preparation into planning for the Texans.
The Pats completely dominated Houston at Gillette in Week 3, winning 27-0 with rookie quarterback Jacoby Brissett under center.
With Tom Brady back at the helm of the offense and essentially everyone else from the victory in place, the Pats should feel good about their match up. The odds makers certainly feel good about it, as many have reportedly opened the books with New England as a whopping 16-point favorite.
