Your Houston Texans haven't quite reached the point of having to win out to maintain hope for a playoff berth, but that reality is within view. An upset of the New England Patriots on Sunday Night Football at NRG Stadium this evening would not only be cause for celebration in Houston; it'd also serve to reset the clock on the last time New England lost three in a row. Will the Texans send Tom Brady & Co. to a place they haven't visited since 2002 while continuing to muddy the AFC playoff picture? Only one way to find out.
