FOXBORO Before getting swamped by the Patriots Monday night, the Houston Texans described their game with New England as the biggest in franchise history.
The Patriots and 49ers' practice and participation reports for Wednesday:
NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS
FOXBORO -- The Patriots-Texans game is one that lived up to the billing.
At least in the postgame.
FOXBORO There was a full quarter remaining Monday night when the Texans said, Let us up, weve had enough.
FOXBORO -- New England will take on the Texans with as much firepower as has been mustered in a while.
