It was as recent as week 14 that the New England Patriots put the beat down on the Houston Texans at Gillette Stadium. In just a few short days, the home team will have the chance to show that it was no fluke, and the Patriots are the better team.

The team turned in solid performances all around, playing the proverbial "full 60 minutes", getting a little help from friendly bounces along the way. One contributor in Donte Stallworth will not be with the team this time, but another key contributor will be making his presence felt: one Rob Gronkowski.

In many ways, the team is healthier than ever; so here is what they need to do to get the win and advance to face, most likely, the Denver Broncos.

Hard to imagine Schaub threw for the 2d most yards in a game NFL history this year. I sent him a case of 5hour.
Hope y'all got flu shots. I might as well go play golf, Sunday, eh?

In overtime. It still takes consistency and balance to win in the playoffs and Tom Brady is the master.

If Texans play their A game they can beat anyone. Brady hates gettin hit and gets pretty ordinary under constant pressure. I know y'all think he walks on water...No one thinks Texans can even match up, much less compete. Kubiak opens up the playbook and Schaub executes...Find out soon enough.
