I knew I shouldn't have doubted the Patriots, never doubt the Patriots, that's rule #1, and I broke it. So, I was little too high on the Texans coming into this game, I let their 2-0 record get to my head a little bit, boy did that blowup in my face. Any good thing I have ever said about Osweiler I want to take back because for a 6'7" QB, he has a noodle arm. His ball has no zip on it whatsoever my god, my little sister throws a football with more velocity. With that being said the Patriots defense is also just simply amazing, this is the best defense I've seen the Patriots have since the early 2000's. They shutout the Texans offense, the Texans didn't cross the 50 yard line on offense till the last minute of the third quarter, the Patriots defense straight up bullied them. Oh yeah, the defense was also missing two of their better players in Donta Hightower and Rob Ninkovich. LeGarrette Blount had a killer game carrying this offense on his back, he rushed for 105 yards on 24 carries, and had 2 touchdowns. Jacoby Brissett was the big story of the night, a third string rookie quarterback on a short week, things were not looking good for the Pats coming into tonight, but he was able to manage the game well, make a few plays, and most importantly didn't turn the ball over. Now, some people are saying he played great, okay calm down, he did well stepping into this situation, but this kid isn't anything special. The Patriots dominated every single facet of tonight's game, no other way to really summarize it. They simply dominated the Houston Texans in every way possible, Bill Belichick put together a masterful game plan, and the Patriots executed it to perfection. What else is new. The teacher(Belichick) showed the world tonight that the student(Bill O'Brien) can never dethrone the master. The evil empire continues to show no mercy on the league, imagine how deadly the Patriots are going to be once Tom Brady comes back. Scary.
