Healed & revamped, Texans ready to take on Brady, Patriots

Last season, Watt broke his leg in the Texans' Week 5 loss to the Chiefs.

STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - Facing off for fourth straight year in regular season.

The Texans should be better with Watson back in the fold, and it'd be a major disappointment if they weren't at least in contention for a playoff spot in a division lacking a powerhouse.

As for the coming weeks, the Patriots will strive to be competitive - and victorious - as the coaching staff tinkers with who to play where and how while the players strive to adjust to new responsibilities and schemes.

Don't talk to Tom Brady unless it's about football.

He played just three games in 2016 before being sidelined with a herniated disc.

The episode touched on the normal topics the 41-year-old went over during the series, from Brady's age to his desire to play well into his mid-40s.

"I don't want to bring on any drama this year", Brady told reporters Friday, via ESPN's Mike Reiss. Phillip and Chris, I obviously played a lot with them previous year. "To be on this team, you've got to be a good football player". And maybe I'm just caring about certain things that really matter, like my family, like people's health, like life and death. None of New England's offseason gambles at wide receiver paid off, and with Danny Amendola now in Miami, Brandin Cooks now in Los Angeles and Julian Edelman suspended, Brady is going to have shoulder the load alongside Rob Gronkowski and another rotation of running backs.

Yet here is the rub as the Texans prepare to face the Patriots in their opening game of the 2018 season: Between injuries and new additions, all of Houston's defensive talent has not played much, so it could take time for the unit to come together and play to its full potential. But, yeah, when I think of Tom, I think of situations like that. "It will be a challenge for me". We think the public is too high on the Texans, and I'm hammering the Patriots -6.5 this week. "One of the keys for Kansas City last year was not turning the ball over, in fact, they were number one in the league, but that's going to be hard to duplicate with a rookie quarterback in Mahomes this year". "I still feel like there's things to accomplish".

"Once you stop, you're done. I think this team, we need that win to get to where we want to get".

'I think the last eight years of my career have been better than my first 10, so I should just prolong it, and that's what I'm trying to do, ' he said.

As the MVP, Brady had a very good season past year statistically.

'I'd love to play 41, 42, 43, 44, 45, ' Brady said.

"That doesn't surprise me at all", guard Shaq Mason said following Wednesday's practice.

"It's strength against strength, as the Cowboys rush offense goes against a Carolina rush defense that was number three in the league past year".
