The Houston Texans are nine- to 10-point underdogs Sunday in their divisional playoff against New England.
The previous time these two teams met, less than a month ago, the Patriots had a 42-14 picnic. Tom Brady was able to pass short, throw deep, go outside and look inside, tossing four touchdown passes. New England ran the ball and its defence was able to read Matt Schaub.
So, nobody who doesn’t wear a Houston uniform is giving the Texans much of a chance.
