There’s not a lot of optimism about the chances of your Houston Texans to upend the New England Patriots when the teams meet on Saturday night. The Patriots are 14-2, led by arguably the greatest head coach and greatest quarterback in NFL history. The Texans are 10-7 and led by...people other than Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. Nevertheless, the Texans’ defense is capable of keeping any offense in check, and no team is perfect; there’s a reason the NFL has a tournament to declare its champion as opposed to simply awarding the Lombardi Trophy to the team with the best regular season record. Whether it’s a slaughter or a game that’ll go down in Texans lore forever (yes, I fully recognize it could feasibly be both), I have no doubt you’ll be watching. What’s your plan?
Are you going to be at Gillette Stadium, sincerely thanking Patriots fans for the gifts of Brian Hoyer and Ryan Mallett?
Will you be watching at home in order to ensure you don’t have to drive anywhere when the game clock hits zero?
Perhaps you’re planning on taking the game in at a tavern (preferably of ill repute) so you can watch Jadeveon Clowney chase Tom Brady on multiple televisions at once.
Whatever your plans, let us know in the Comments. If you're still trying to figure out what you're going to do, or if you’ll be a stranger in a strange land looking for somewhere to catch the game on Saturday night, pose any queries here; someone might have a suggestion for you. Similarly, if you've got a worthy spot staked out somewhere and want to clue fellow Texans fans in to it, please divulge that information in the Comments as well.
