The Houston Texans have gone 3-7 this season after beating the New England Patriots (4-6) 27-20 at NRG Stadium From the jump, this game seemed to have the makings of a tall affair theft between these two offenses, as they were each able to find the end zone in the first quarter However, the Patriots ‘offense was largely silent in the first half after a 10-game, 84-yard touchdown to start the game for Josh McDaniels’ unit. They only managed three more points in the first half and saw Deshaun Watson show his brilliance and tack with 14 points in the second quarter to take the lead. From there Cam Newton and his company were playing from behind and couldn’t quite get past Houston Now any sort of late playoff push seems to be wiped out

Watson ended his day with 344 yards in the air and two touchdowns despite losing Kenny Stills and Randall Cobb early in this competition He leaned on his tight ends in the passing game with Brandin Cooks, who led the team with 85 receiving yards, and Will Fuller V, who finished with 80 yards on six catches Watson also helped offensively with his legs, totaling 36 yards while scoring on a four-yard touchdown in the second quarter.

As for the Patriots’ offense, Newton looked comfortable passing the ball in the second half, but the unit was largely disjointed throughout. He finished with 365 passing yards and one touchdown while not committing any turnovers Although Houston brags about the league’s worst defense going into Week 11, Romeo Crennel’s club have largely mastered the Patriots’ rushing game, totaling just 86 yards from 36 yards per carry and a touchdown

From there, the Patriots will return to Foxborough and await a clash with the Arizona Cardinals Meanwhile, the Texans will look to carry this week’s momentum to Detroit when they face the Lions in Week 12 Thanksgiving

The Texans have just pulled Newton out of the pocket and he has nowhere to go for this fourth down Houston regains possession with 1:11 to go

Starting left tackle Isaiah Wynn is down and in pain It was questionable going into this game with an ankle injury and appeared to have been curled up during this game

Make or break the road ahead here for the Patriots Could very well determine how we see the rest of the season for Bill Belichick’s club if they come away with a touchdown or not

Texans can’t hurt on third down They’ve converted five of their nine third downs in this game so far

The Deshaun Watson Show: The Texans quarterback was a one-man demolition crew in the first half, totaling 241 passing yards and two touchdowns in the air He was also a devastation at knocking down for the Patriots pass passer, running 30 yards on the ground and had another touchdown Keeping him in his pocket and limiting his ability to burn you with his feet will be imperative for the Patriots to stage a comeback

Houston tight ends dominate: Patriots have a hard time knocking down all Houston tight ends Jordan Akins, Darren Fells and Pharaoh Brown combined for 124 receiving yards in the first half With Kenny Stills and Randall Cobb, they’ll need to keep that momentum going to help push New England back

Patriots passing offense needs to improve It was a solid opening for the Patriots, but Cam Newton and the passing offense need to have more positive plays Since that first 10-game offensive practice , New England threw three kicks and scored a basket With Watson playing as well as him, they’ll just have to be better to call
