Mularkey: Patriots are the best team we've faced

FOXBORO -- The 12-2 Houston Texans currently own the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoff picture. And the 2-12 Jacksonville Jaguars lost to them twice this season.

Still, Jags' coach Mike Mularkey said on Wednesday that the No. 3-seeded Patriots will be the best team they've faced so far this season, entering Sunday's Week 16 game in Florida.

"Overall this is probably the best team we've played, I'd say yes," said Mularkey. "Looking at the complete roster in all three phases, I'd say yes."
