Houston, which finished the regular season ranked No. 7 in the NFL in total defense, will be up against a New England team that topped the league in total offense.

Oddsmakers don't like the Texans' chances in New England -- the Patriots opened as 9.5-point favorites to win. New England is now anywhere from a nine- to 10-point favorite.

The Seahawks and Falcons play the early game today, which can be seen on Fox at noon CST.
