I dont always choose to kickoff each morning with the New England Patriots but when I do they typically beat down the Houston Texans 42-14.
No one really gave the Patriots a chance. The Texans were to fast, to strong, and were going to come into Foxboro and show the NFL while they were the best team in the game.
Not so fast. Tom Brady and the New England defense showed last night why they haven’t lost a game at home in December, since 2002. That is a unreal streak.
I said the score would be 42-17 not because I’m a cocky Patriots fan (sorta am) but because I knew that the Patriots matched up well against the Texans. Next week against the 49ers is going to be a different story.
This is the best Patriots team I have ever seen. That includes the 2007 18-1 season. The defense is starting to turn it up. Alfonzo Dennard and Aquib Talibs ability to play underneath coverage while Devin McCourty roams the deep secondary has allowed the Patriots to do things defensively that they haven’t done here in a long time.
Keep in mind one thing moving forward. Arguably the most dynamic TE the game has ever seen will return to the lineup for the playoffs.
PS – 49ers vs Patriots next week. 49-7. Yup. I thought it might be a tough game but one thing B.B. does well is shutdown rookie QB’s espicially in December. #11-3
PSS – Kaepernick in my eyes is a rookie. This is his first true year as a starter. Carry on.
