You want to beat New England? Just ask us Giants fans

In all serious, for Houston to win..collapse the pocket and pressure Brady. JJ Watt should be the mother****er to do this.

If not, Brady will carve up Houston's "defense" like a hot knife through butter.

Can't wait for this game.

I won't get too cocky, as easy as it is to get that way by looking at the stats. The main thing that I'm thinking is that covering AJ Green is what got the Texans by the Bengals.

Now you're dealing with one of, if not the greatest playoff QBs, and 4 eligible receivers that will each be as effective as Green. If you let one lose their coverage, which will happen most of the time, they're going to burn you. We have a better RB in Ridley as long as he doesn't fumble it, (which was only really a problem for one game anyway) and our defense has played good recently. With a healthy and rested team, which we have, I can't see the Patriots losing this one. Hopefully they don't prove me wrong.

Guess I'm one of the three who picks the Texans. I think their D shows up and has the game of their season.

Upset weekend in the AFC as Baltimore will join.

If the Patriots win this game it should set up one of two dynamite storylines for the AFC Championship. It'll either be a rematch of last year's game vs Baltimore, or Brady vs Peyton round 4.

I am expecting a much closer game this time around. If Houston can find a way to establish the run early they will have a shot to keep it close with Houston contolling the clock. In the end however New England has to many weapons and will pull away in the 4th quarter.

Pats 31 Houston 17

Pats by 10.

Houston's offense has cooled off even more since their meeting in December, so I don't think they'll put up enough points to win. The key to beating NE is getting constant pressure on Brady and collapsing the pocket. Watt is an amazing player, but HOU lacks the players to constantly harass the QB from the other side and the middle.

Only way I can see HOU keeping this game close is if Foster has his way early in the game. While it could happen, the strength of the Pats D is their front-7, so it'll be tough for Foster to get anything going.

Brady needs a statement post-season if he wants to be in the GOAT discussion. Hes been pretty damn average recently in the post-season.

Pats by 13

Pats are going to run up the score in this one, should same as the game a few weeks ago between these same two teams. Texans will be lucky to get 14 points.

Yeah, Schaub will need to help out his running game a bit. They have a good line,two good backs and some nice receiving options. If they stay balanced they should be able to move the ball on New England. They'll need to put up at least 24 points to have a chance. This should be a great game.

Houston hasn't seen Gronk. Time to unleash him.

Texans. I don't see Schuab being nearly as bad as he was last game against New England, and I expect Houston's defense to step it up.

Pats in a blowout. They'll keep holding Watt down like last game and not get called. Excellent tactic.

Pats in a rout. It took EVERYTHING for Houston to barely beat the Bengals at home. Houston just has not been the same since Cushing blew his knee out.

Patriots 31
Texans 10

This is the healthiest the Patriots have been all season. Only 5 players listed on today's injury report and all 5 are probable.

Stream for the Patriots-Texans game?

Diehard Pats fan and I can't be at home for this.

If I'm correct you can't stream CBS live, so do any of you have a reliable stream?

Thanks, and also this would be on Mobile (iPhone)

Well, the Ravens have done their part, now, the path to the Super Bowl goes through Foxboro. Win and play at home or lose and go home!

GO PATS GO!

I'm hoping for a tough and gruelling game that leaves the winner battered and bruised and sore for the AFC championship.

Well my Denver picked backfired, so I assume my New England pick will as well

We want Baltimore/Houston!

98.5 has Gill and Zo which is better than TV most times.
