Chris Price of WEEI.com and Andy Hart of Patriots Football Weekly join Sports Tonight to take a closer look at the Texans-Patriots playoff showdown.
What adjustments. The Texans have to make in order to win this game the Texans are at their best when their plane with a lead so much of what they do offensively predicated. On them getting out to a quick start and they can have the same start. This week that they had back in December they're gonna -- all the between two great job taking advantage was fourteen nothing at the drop back at. It's not the kind of team that set up to throw the ball all over the place that they really don't like that job is not the kind of quarterback we need to run the ball and you run the ball consistently. Then to go play action off of that. That you -- that's -- throwing the football thought it was they attacked a secondary and -- the Patriots but that's not them it's not them but I think they got to do a couple times and I'm not saying you come out and he has to throw forty times matchup -- Andre Johnson. You know maybe treat like the 49. They came in with Colin captain -- Korda said we got to make some plays over the top we got to get mosque behind the defense a couple times will build that lead. And let's be honest the play action doesn't need to be set up in this game everybody knows that Houston runs the ball well and Foster the 14100 our backs automatically. You come in the linebackers respect your running in that respect the play action fake. I think they need to make some plays downfield I think they need to go over the top hundred Johnson. Hit Owen Daniels down -- seem a little bit and then try to play off that they agree with Chris they get a get a lead they're getting at some points early and say we're in this game -- you know we're confident -- on the -- do this and he do that on the scoreboard -- it's almost at the Jets right you -- you gotta come up for the ball it's -- of -- up and work within the problem is. You put his Mark Sanchez hands. We'll put the game and match -- -- coming in -- that's a request and I I don't know if Shaw is ready for this kind of spotlight it's interesting you talk about job as district. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- But there's still questions is not he can get it done the big moment we talked about this off your report. We threw that touchdown pass the look of relief on his hands it was the fifth spot but don't look -- -- Finally we got this -- back I don't think that they're completely comfortable put -- in his hands in situations aren't in the all weeklong defensively attacked and Tom Brady ever been throwing up the numbers right with Tom Brady's numbers off. With five plus pass rushers and how aggressive you need to do more than anybody in the league. Do they have the personnel to to get away from that and did you stick with the regular pass rush I mean you do have the defensive player of the year right in the and in JJ -- got Olivia felt twentieth half sacks. Think they need to get more the other guys you know Brooks Reed is back. -- first time that's a guy can get after the quarterback. -- bar would need to get after the quarterback Antonio Smith their defensive line. -- seven and a half sacks he was irrelevant the first game I thought JJ -- of the only guys showed up up front for them in the first matchup I think he can control game but he needs help. Because obviously the Patriots their protections are sliding to JJ -- everything that we fixated. On -- so it was interesting numbers came out today -- -- from ESPN. Looking back at the Ravens and the Jets when they lost it was a great season yeah in the post season they blitzed in the regular season more than 50% of the time -- five rushes. In the post season wins they cut it way down and didn't blitz as often even though you think of Rex Ryan as. Some type coach he changed his velocity I think Wade Phillips need to do that I know he's one of those old school we do what we do. But if you do what you do the Brady's gonna do what he does it have to figure out a way to get pressure with a minimum number -- you go back and watch that 2010 you don't think figured you would do it but I think. If you're Wade Phillips -- ago with the depression with a minimum number of of -- -- review for guys drop the rest of the coverage and just flood the field of his own -- -- one of the ways you can go about the bridge where other quick point Johnathan Joseph healthier this time. He gets most of last time a little bit by the Patriots he's a little -- -- know Kareem Jackson -- start to buy into him down in Houston. You know -- spend a lot of time Tony why Houston can win we get to the point where we sit in a technical but because you know this is all talk -- -- -- it only cause we all -- Jonathan -- so we -- -- much of -- I'm not Santana a -- I know they had the double by last year against the Broncos and Tim Tebow this year they certainly play -- -- inaudible the --
