We're going to get killed. Patriots are clicking and we have a QB with 4 games of experience. You know Belichick is going to game plan around how to confuse the heck out of Kaep. I was more confident in winning before the Texans' game, but that really opened my eyes. If they play at the same level as they did tonight, I doubt we win. =(
Everybody's a Patriots expert now. They were gassing up the Bears the same way and we shredded them. Cutler make no difference so ur argument is invalid there. We will embarrass the Pats and brawl like its the SB. The real test is Denver.
The Houston Texans looked at Monday night's game against the New England Patriots as the biggest in franchise history.
The Patriots have another big prime-time match up on tap next week as they play host to the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night. For the Patriots, it will be business as usual. They know they already get everyone's best shot. They expect the same from the 49ers next week with one caveat:
"I know the team we play next week, it's not the biggest game in their franchise's history," guard Logan Mankins said.

Lol I love how positive everyone is. It feels good to lot onto the zone and see everyone agreeing on smashing the pats! Lets do this boys!
Lot of homers in here, for sure.
We just know we're the better team and that if we play our game we can beat these guys.
why not be a homer?! lol
obviously you have to be realistic about who has better players at so and so position or whos a better overall team and blah blah blah. thats just for good football talk with friends and other fans. if you dont think we can beat them.. then idk why you are even here! we all think this team should beat every team!
(P.S this isnt a shot at anyone. im just talking in general)
New England is 8th against the run and 29th against the pass. That means that it will help tremendously to have a healthy receiving corps Sunday so hopefully we get Manningham back but most of all Vernon Davis must be a crucial part of the gameplan. Use what they do well against them. I believe that Patrick or Bowman can have some success covering Hernandez but I don't believe they have anybody ready to cover Vernon.
The Pats play the no-huddle offense better than anyone. Hernandez can be neutralized by Pat or Bo. Welker is another matter, he won't get deep like Salsa but he can 8 and 10 yard us all day. Negate their running attack completely and force Brady to pass every down. This is the time and place for Aldon to tell the world he is the Defensive MVP of the NFL.
