Expected New England and Tom Brady to be 17 point favorites! Expecially with the performance put on by Houston Saturday. Will go "All In" on the Pats, even if the line goes up to -20! Good Luck to All on Playoffs :)

I'm NOT suprised. IF the Texans could only put up 19 in their home building, I doubt they can do more away in the new England cold. New England has proved they can score "like a rabbit on a date" and previously beat the Texans 42-14 week 14 in Foxborough. btw, no matter WHAT happens ib Baltimore tomarrow, the AFC championship game will probably be Patriots @ Broncos with the winner winning the Super Bowl.
