New England Patriots Look to Stay on a Roll Against Texans
Fresh off last week’s thrilling 34-31 come-from-behind win over Denver, the New England Patriots will look to stay on track for one of the top spots on the AFC as they take on the Houston Texans at 1 p.m. B98.5 will have all of the action, starting with the pregame show at 10 a.m. and continuing through the game and all the way through the postgame show!When the Broncos (9-2) broke out to a 24-0 first-half lead last Sunday night, some viewers in the TV audience may have switched over to the American Music Awards’ broadcast. They missed a virtuoso performance from Tom Brady & the Pats. Brady threw for 344 yards and three touchdowns, as New England (8-3) came back to win 34-31 in overtime. The Patriots got lucky in the extra session as Ryan Allen’s punt bounced and hit Denver’s Tony Carter. New England recovered to set up Stephen Gostkowski’s 31-yard field goal with 1:56 left in OT. There was nothing lucky about the way Brady erased the 24-point deficit by the 13:13 mark of the fourth quarter. Fans in New England certainly haven’t grown tired of Brady’s predictable success.
This week, New England travels to Houston to take on the struggling Texans (2-9). The Patriots should have an easier time of it this week, and will be keeping one eye on the huge Kansas City/Denver matchup as they continue to battle the Chiefs and the Broncos for the top spot in the AFC playoff race!
