Houston Texans Preseason: 3 Takeaways vs Patriots

Houston Texans Preseason: 3 Takeaways vs Patriots

Trailing 23-20, the Texans defense produced a big interception that set up the Texans on the four yard line.

There will be one significant holdout, however, as Rob Gronkowski isn't expected to play.

New England Patriots' quarterback Tom Brady's fifth Super Bowl championship was dampened slightly by his jerseys being stolen.

Included was a goal line TD that proved to be the game victor for the Texans against the New England Patriots in a back-and-forth preseason game. Without their first-stringers, the Patriots were incapable to beat the their opponent in the first preseason contest, but the coaching staff was accomplished to get a better view at some young core rookie players.

For the second-straight week in preseason play, Deshaun Watson scored a rushing touchdown.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and many key starters are expected to make their preseason debuts tonight against the Texans, according to a source.

He went on to say Trump shows more "national leadership" and "substance over form" than the USA has seen "in a long time". Rebekah Tilley graduated from Liberty in 2002 and now works in higher education in Iowa.

The reason to play Brady and the starters is straightforward. Don't let that fool you into thinking that rookie running back D'Onta Foreman can't run. There were missed tackles by Cyrus Jones among others. Roberts went down in pain and walked off under his own power but left moments later on a cart.

The Patriots turned the ball over three times in the game, and it resulted in 10 points for Houston.

Brisett had driven the team from midfield to the Houston 8, but he was hit while going back to throw and fumbled.

On New England's second possession, the Patriots got a break on the first play, a pass from Brady to receiver Chris Hogan.

The ball went forward and out of the back of the end zone for a touchback, giving the Texans the win. Watson contributed 24 yards in three carries. It was again Cunningham getting burned in coverage for the Texans. He scrambled to his right and appeared to be throwing the ball away in the vicinity of Jacob Hollister.

The running back looks like he'll be a great fit in the New England offense, racking up 70 yards during his time on the field Saturday night. "I'm not trying to live in the past, I'm not trying to live in the future, I'm just trying to do a good job with the team we have".
