The New England Patriots (10–2) travel to take on the Houston Texans (6–6) at NRG Stadium on Sunday.

The Patriots are coming off their second loss of the season, being upset by the Philadelphia Eagles, 35–38, last week. Quarterback Tom Brady finished the game 29 of 56 passing with 312 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions, one of which was return for a 97-yard touchdown by Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins. New England also gave up a touchdown on a blocked punt.

The Texans had a four-game winning streak snapped last week in a 30–21 loss to the Buffalo Bills. Quarterback Brian Hoyer completed 26 of 43 passes for 293 yards, three touchdowns and an interception. The Houston defense could not stop Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor, who threw for three touchdown passes and added a score on the ground.
