Patriots vs Texans: Opportunity Knocks During NFL Week 14

Patriots vs Texans: Opportunity Knocks During NFL Week 14

New England looks to maintain top AFC perch

With Denver losing 15-12 at home versus Oakland, along with Cincinnati getting crushed 33-20 by Pittsburgh earlier today, New England has regained first place overall in the AFC but they fall back to third if they lose tonight. After a 10-0 season start, the injury riddled Patriots have lost two in row as they dropped a 30-24 (OT) decision in Denver prior to a 35-28 meltdown at home against Philadelphia last Sunday. Though his snap count and mobility may be somewhat limited - New England stud TE Rob Gronkowski has been activated for this contest tonight. The Patriots have issues beyond injuries.

Houston is suddenly in a playoff position after Colts get crushed

Without even playing, the Houston Texans are now the leaders in the very strange AFC South Division after Jacksonville annihilated Indianapolis 51-16 in Florida earlier today. Houston (6-6) can go a full game up on the Colts, and two up on the Jaguars, with a victory here. The Texans have enjoyed some home cooking as they 4-2 at Reliant Stadium so far this season. Following a run of four straight wins, including a 10-6 shutdown of the 8-0 Bengals in Cincinnati, the Texans dropped a 30-21 decision to the Bills on the road in Buffalo last weekend. Houston needs a big game from their defense here.

Patriots vs Texans MFL Week 14 Prediction: The Lone Star State Crew have dropped three straight to Tom Brady & Co. by a 117-73 margin and the Patriots own a 5-1 series lead. While we can see some of his snaps acting as a decoy - having Gronkowski back on the field is a big boost for the Patriots. Brady needs all the help he can he as he is facing a Houston pass defense that’s giving up just 218.3 yards per game – good for third best in the NFL. Expecting a close contest, we will take the points and back the Texans with a 500 unit wager on the spread price posted at BetOnline.
