The New England Patriots will face a team headed in an opposite direction when they take on the 2-9 Houston Texans on Sunday.
Glenn Ordway, Fred Smerlas, and Steve DeOssie made their picks on the upcoming matchup on New England Tailgate.
“As I analyze this game and look at the talent on both sides, I come up with one thing, [Tom] Brady,” Smerlas said. “Brady has a big game. Defense shuts them down. And [Bill] Belichick’s brain engulfs the whole stadium.”
DeOssie believes it more of what the Texans can’t do than what the Patriots can do, that will decide the outcome of the game.
“You’ve got a lot of talent at least defensively on that Texans team,” DeOssie said. “But on the other side of the ball, Case Keenum can be good for 30 minutes but he hasn’t really put a full game together. I think the struggles continue for the Houston Texans. I think the Patriots win this by a couple of touchdowns.”
