Where can I watch the Patriots versus the Texans? Patriots vs Texans is not televised live in the UK
NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS
The Patriots got their season back on track following their shock loss to the Chiefs on the opening day to beat the Saints last week 36-20.
Tom Brady bounced back with three first quarter touchdown throws and threw for 447 as he showed signs of returning to his best form.
Injuries continue to mount for the Patriots however with Gronkowski picking up a knock last week but they will hope it is nothing serious.
The Texans managed to overcome a poor opening week loss against the Jaguars to rebound and edge out the Bengals 13-9 ten days ago.
There are plenty of ties between these teams with O'Brien being a Belichick protégé, and both teams training together in pre-season.
Rookie QB Watson will start again but he will have to raise his game further against a Patriots defense known to give rookies a tough time.
Analysis - what to expect
The Patriots bounced back in emphatic fashion against the Saints and now they face a Texans team that has a strong defense, but are struggling at the QB position. The Patriots have a great record against the Texans and will be confident of beating them comfortably on their turf.
