Week Thirteen Infographic: Houston Texans vs. New England Patriots

This week we highlight the matchup between the Houston Texans and the New England Patriots as we play a game.

The Texans' 2012 season came to an end against the Patriots. If you had told me the next time they met would be not for playoff seeding but for draft position, I might have thought it was some kind of sick joke. That is where this week's cover comes in. The "Saw" series depicts one of the newest horror movie stars, "The Jigsaw Killer." Jigsaw tests his victims' worthiness to live by forcing them into horrifying tests. Today's game feels like a painful test that pits a Texans squad that has a worse win percentage than the Astros against the Patriots, who just came back from a 24-point deficit to beat Peyton Manning and the Broncos. Let's take a look at the horror before us.
