Monday Night Football open thread: Texans vs. Patriots

Rob Carr

We take a look at Week 14 Monday Night Football matching up the Texans and Patriots, and provide an open thread for discussion.

Monday Night Football features a pretty huge matchup as the New England Patriots host the Houston Texans in a battle of two of the three best teams in the AFC. The Texans, Patriots and Broncos are looking like the three teams to beat in the AFC, with the Ravens stumbling down the stretch. The Texans and Patriots entered this weekend as co-Super Bowl favorites at 9/2, with the Broncos even with the 49ers at 11/2.

This games is far and away the toughest game on the Patriots schedule to date. New England has looked sharp on offense, but they haven't exactly faced a who's who of defenses. They are obviously a good team, but this week and next week will tell us a lot more about them. After hosting the Texans tonight, the Patriots host our 49ers on Sunday Night Football next week.

For now, we get to watch and scout the Patriots. They are a talented but beatable team. Let's see what tonight brings.
