The NFL is back on the Sports schedule as the Houston Texans will clash with the New England Patriots at the Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. The Patriots were the better team last season in this encounter as they won with a score of 36-33.
Houston Texans Form
The Texans had a poor season last year. They were not able to meet their pre-season expectation. They also suffered a lot of injuries.
However, this season they have their main players back and the expectation is that this team will be in the playoffs this season.
Last season, the Texans were a poor offensive team as they were placed on the 20th spot in the league in total offence. They were on the 21st spot in passing, 14th place in rushing and on the 17th spot in scoring at 21.1 points per game. On the defence, they were also on the 20th spot in total yards allowed, 24th place against the pass and 13th place vs the run. They have also allowed an average of 27.2 points per game, which was the worst in the league.
New England Patriots Form
The Patriots were one of the best teams in the NFL last season. They have won their division in the last nine seasons in a row. Moreover, they played in their 8th Super Bowl in the last 17 seasons. They played very well last season and many expected them to win it, however, they fell short against a strong Eagles team.
The Patriots pretty much have the same team from last year and the expectations are that they will be in the mix for the title again.
On the offensive side of the game, the Patriots were the best team last season as they were placed on the 1st spot in the league in total offence. The Pats were 2nd in passing and 2nd in scoring at 28.6 points per game.
On the defensive side of the game, the Patriots were poor as they were placed on the 29th spot in total yards allowed, 30th spot against the pass and they were 20th vs the run. The Patriots let in just 18.5 points per game, which was the 5th record in the league.
The Texans were very poor last season and they suffered some bad defeats. However, it seems that this season they were able to rebuild and got some of their experience players back from injury. It will be interesting to see how they will fare against the dominant Patriots.
On the other side, the Patriots are one of the best teams in the league. They are also the main favourite to win the Super Bowl again. They have an experienced team and I expect a convincing starting win for the Patriots in this one.
