The New England Patriots and Houston Texans wrap up what has been a very entertaining divisional round weekend. The winner of this game advances to host the Baltimore Ravens in next week's AFC Championship Game, and will emerge as the favorite in the game.

The Patriots head into this game with quite a bit of confidence, having pounded the Texans 42-14 back in Week 14. The Patriots now know the road to the Super Bowl could go through Gillette Stadium with a win today. The Texans slipped from the No. 1 to the No. 3 seed, but an upset in New England gets them home field in the AFC Championship Game against the Ravens.

The first three games of this weekend have been a ton of fun with two wild endings, and our 49ers putting together an amazing offensive display. Will we get a fourth great game, or a stinker? Let's hope for the former.
