Texans and Patriots clash on Monday Night football to see who the best team is in American conference, at Gillette Stadium at 8:30 PM ET, in what could easily be the game of the season.
The Patriots are 10-1 in the last Monday Night Football and have won 20 games in a row in the second half of the season, since 2010.
“You’ve got one of the all-time great leaders in football from a coaching standpoint and a quarterback standpoint,” Texans coach Gary Kubiak said of Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. “You know you’re going to have to raise your level of play and play as good as you can possibly play. That’s why we do what we do. It is a big challenge, but I know our football team will be looking forward to it.”
“It’s Monday, and it’s scary, so I’m sure it’s going to be real scary getting toward the end of the week,” Kubiak said at the beginning of the week. “We know we’re going to play a great player and one of the top passing games in the business for a long, long time”.
For the Patriots, the idea is to stop JJ Watt and allow Tom Brady enough time to throw the ball. “He’s an incredible player,” Brady said. “He does pretty much everything for them.”
The averages margin of points in those 10 Monday night wins for the Patriots is 20. New England is 3.5 favorites in the NFL Odds
