    That the Pats are steamrolling the "most complete team in football". Our defense held up much better than the Texans defense is. As bad as our secondary is can Houston's be worse? Is Tim Dobbins really a starter on a defense for an 11-1 team? This looks like a long night for Houston and I bet the Pats embarras the 9ers next week too.

    Oddly, our offense performed better against the Pats than the Texans also... Without Andre Johnson

    No worry. I'm sure the Dolphins will get destroyed in Week 17 just as bad as Houston is tonight. There is no stopping NE unfortunately.

    You have to give our defensive some credit...Maybe we are not better skill wise but certainly we were better prepared? You can't just complete dismiss our defensive performance against them!

    Yeah but teams have been hanging all kinds of yards and points on Houston lately not just NE. Ask Chad Henne how tough Houston's defense is. They have injuries and its showing. Tim Dobbins backed up Channing Crowder, you'd have to think Ed be the 4th LB on our team at best.

    if they didn't hang 60 on us last week, why would they the next time we play? I'm sorry but did you forget the game that was JUST played?

    this is the exact same thing people (quitters) were saying right before we played the pats and the 9ers. you kids don't understand that this team is prepared to play nearly every week. we may lose more than we win but err come to play and will be a serious force in a couple years.

    Lets not forget the Patriots are home. Wait until we get to go into Gilette and play the Patriots at home.

    I predicted the Patriots to win by 14 over the Texans. The way Houston has been playing? Jacksonville dropped 37 and Detroit 31. No possible way where they going to stop New England. Houston has been pretty terrible lately on the defensive end. I am surprised to see it 21-0 right now though. Thought Matt would be throwing better

    So other then Watt and Joseph what Texans do you take for our defense and who do you throw out? Our LB's and DT's are better (tough 4-3 vs 3-4 but Soliai and Starks are better then Cody.

    I definitely take Jonathon Joseph and Kareem Jackson over Smith and Carroll and I may take Daniel Manning over Clemons.

    No one is going to be happy if we get embarrassed, hell I am usually the loudest fool at the bar and i cheer for the Dolphins which trust me draws remarks. But some of us are realist and the Pats are on fire right now and if they are hitting on like this when we play its a long day. You say our defense played well and I say the Pats were off, hell most were on here using Brady missing open TDs to justify Tannehill missing them. I just except we need a lot of work.

    I'm sure your going to be heart-broken considering all you typed and predicted, when they win more or less by the same margin as the first game! We have so many gutless fans that secretly wish for this teams demise every week.

    I don't doubt that we need more work but our defense/secondary hasn't looked as bad as Houston's has in there last 3 games all season. They are repeatedly getting lit up. To say we could have a better D right now, after injuries, isn't that far fetched. I think we are far from a defense you can rely on to win championships but our offense is so bad we need to focus on it this offseason. We can stand pat on D and get better on O and be competitive.

    No I won't be heart broken because I had realistic expectations this year seeing how we have a rookie HC, rookie dc, rookie qb, new OC, new system on offense and defense and the majority of the players on the roster don't fit the system. I said this was a 6 win team give or take a win or lose and I have been spot on.

    Hey idiots, playing New England IN New England is far different and way the **** harder then playing them in sunny Miami. Totally different, so you can't compare. Get real. Miami will get torched in Week #17 even if the game is meaningless. C'mon man. Nobody wins in New England in the 2nd half.

    I will agree that Tim Dobbins is the most overrated player in the NFL this year, and JJ Watt is clearly a roid head who hasn't been caught yet. Can he pump any more roids into his body or what? **** the Texans. Pretenders.

    Brady missed a WR in stride down-field. Brada-Henne!!!! No Accuracy.

    I'm sorry you guys are right. I just checked and we played NE in Foxboro last year in week 16 and lost 72-3. They also beat the Ravens 63-2 2 weeks later. Playing a competitive game with the Pats at home in December is obviously impossible and we are all dumber now for even discussing the idea. Mods please close this thread.

    Next will be hearing Brandon Marshall is a 50 point swing.

    The fact that we have "fans" hoping that the Patriots blow-us-out when we go to Foxboro to prove that our first defensive performance against them was a fluke. Like I said disgusting!

    Who said we were hoping NE blows us out??? I suggest you stop trying to put words in peoples mouths. Nowhere did I read, or did I say I hoped we get blown out by 60 points. Grow up.

    Idk. I think the Patriots once again are running a masterful defensive scheme on him. For most of the night they've had a Safety overhead just shadowing him around on the field. Patriots pass rush has been killing Matt as well.

    Next game is in Foxboro and Miami will probably have fully given up by then...wouldn't be surprised if New England gets almost 60 pts/

    The Texans are an overrated team that will never win anything with Kubiak as their head coach. They got down quick in this game and basically gave up at the end of the 3rd quarter. Neither the Texans or Patriots are winning anything this year the Texans have already been exposed as a soft team and the Patriots will be exposed when they face a team in the playoffs that actually shows up..

    Who? The way I see it is they have just 1 challenge in the AFC and that's Denver. They would steamroll Houston again and the Ravens are a mess. If they can beat Denver they'll have a shot at the Super Bowl again.

    I will nevre trust Houston as long as the overrated Matt Schaub is their QB, until he shows any ability to win a big game I am not convinced Hou can reach the SB.

    w/ that said NE steamrolled us in dec on a monday night 2 years ago then we beat them at NE in the playoffs, if Hou faces NE it will likely be at home but again I don't trust Schaub.

    And with each passing loss, that looks more and more like a fluke. You guys haven't won in 4 games since.

    we had beaten them 3 of 5 times, it wasn't a fluke. We haven't been good the last 2 years.

    You're right, but I don't think those Jeys defenses were getting steamrolled on a weekly basis leading up to that game. Not to mention losing Jim Leonard the Saturday before didn't help. My point is Houston's defense hasn't been good for weeks. If Chad Henne hangs over 30 points on your defense it has issues. Just don't understand how anyone thought Hpuston would stop NE when they haven't stopped anyone lately.

    Next week Kaepernick will be exposed as soon as he's put in a position where he needs to keep up with Tom Brady. Harbaugh will again be contemplating Alex smith going into week 16.

    Haha, had to call me out? I hate the Pats very much and am happy to see this. Not over yet, lets see how Kaepernick does with a 14 point lead? Lets see if that happens first.

    Yeah Kaepernick still has a lot to prove. This game is more the 49ers Defense showing why they are considered the best in the league. Nice of the Refs not to call false start on that huge pass play to get the Patriots in scoring position. #47 the one who caught the pass was off the line before the ball was snapped yet no call by the refs.

    Not to mention Brady spiking that ball would get most folks a 15 yarder.

    If Kap does nothing on the next drive that will tell us something. He has some pressure on him now, hope he can handle the snap ;).

    Love the home cooking at Foxboro. Worst pass interference call I have ever seen in my life. What a shocker, the Patriots got the benefit.

    Wow... Pats just tied it up. We can hate as much as we want, but Brady will be remembered among the best of the best of all time...
