I'm just not a believer in them to the point I'm willing to pick against them in their own house.
I agree. I think Brock has a his first stinker with the Texans. He still may have a good season overall, but Belicheck will have him scratching his head a few times in this one. The Pats may just try to run the ball 40 times in this one.

Oz has been better than other QBs the Texans have had in recent years and I think his upside far surpasses recent makes and models that have lined up behind center for that team. But I agree with you here: the Pats get the better of him in this one. With that said, I am hoping the Texans win this one. That Pats team is going to rip some teams a new one when Brady returns, and a loss early can be the difference between the #1 and #2 seed. Even #3, since the Bengals were 12-4 last year, same as the Patriots and Broncos.

Can somebody tell me why 60% of the country (including all of Texas) is watching Pit/Phi late, and we have to watch SD/Ind? Ugh...

I know Ind is in the same division, but it's early in the year and they are 0-2.

I'm predicting the Pats will beat Houston tonight. (Hope I'm wrong.)

Will get the rest of my picks in later.

So much for the Texans.

I haven't had a Thursday night game win yet. I need a big comeback!

20-0 in the 3rd. There's a reason I picked the Patriots. That team just doesn't flinch.

Their third string rookie QB looks like he could teach Tyrod Taylor a thing or two.

Just a sad Bills fan speaking here.....

So far that's the ratio of how many CD'ers are picking the Pats over the Texans on Thursday. Amazing accomplishment by the Patriots considering the circumstances.
12 to 8
