The Patriots and Texans meet Thursday night at Gillette Stadium as Week 3 of the NFL season gets underway—and you can watch the game on

Both teams are undefeated, but while the Patriots haven't lost a game, they're down two quarterbacks. Tom Brady remains suspended—he'll be back in time for Week 5—and Jimmy Garoppolo is dealing with a shoulder injury. Third–string rookie quarterback Jacoby Brissett will receive his first NFL start on Thursday after relieving Garoppolo on Sunday. 

The Texans are off to a strong start after two quality defensive performances. Led by star defensive lineman J.J. Watt, Houston has allowed just 13.0 points per game through two contests.
