Last year Houston travelled to New England in week three to face a Patriots teams starting third string QB Jacoby Brissett. It was no contest as the Patriots won 27-0. Their season also ended last year on this field in a 34-16 beatdown where New England didn’t look sharp at all and still won with ease.

This time around the Texans are starting a rookie QB in Deshawn Watson against a Bill Belichick team that has never lost to a rookie QB at home (8-0). The 22-year-old did just enough against the Bengals last week in his debut as a starter.

He threw for 125 yards, completing 62.5% of his passes, but will most be remembered for an electric 49-yard touchdown run with 50 seconds remaining in the second quarter. It was the only touchdown scored by either team in the Texans 13-9 win.

The Patriots offense clicked last week in a 36-20 win over the Saints after the disappointing loss to the Chiefs in the opener.

The defense still allowed 429 total yards to Drew Brees and company, but keep in mind the Pats sped out to a 20-3 first quarter lead and were up 30-13 at the half. QB Tom Brady threw for 447 yards and three TDs.

The Saints though are known for having a lousy defense, it’ll be a much stiffer test this week. This game though will turn on whether Watson can make some plays in a very tough place to get a win.

Bovada has the Patriots listed as 14-point favorites and the game's total is sitting at 44 according to MyBookie

On the NFL Football Moneyline Odds at BetOnline Patriots are the Favorite at -1000.
