The New England Patriots have not been good in Bill Belichick’s first season without Tom Brady as his quarterback. Your Houston Texans have been even worse in their latest season without a defense. The team that Bill O’Brien so badly sought to emulate during his reign as Houston’s head coach (and later general manager) has an uncertain future for the first time in nearly twenty years, while the team that most recently employed O’Brien has very little set in stone beyond its franchise quarterback and starting left tackle. Which team would you rather be a fan of going forward?
Ponder your answer to that query as you read about how to catch Sunday’s tilt between the Pats and Texans at NRG Stadium.
