It has been the consensus for many weeks that Houston is the best team in the AFC and perhaps the NFL. I think the Pats have proved that they are every good as Houston. Looking at their records is a bit deceiving. As most people know, the Pats 3 losses combine for only 4 total points. Houston's one loss to the Packers was by 18 points. Then last week the Texans nearly lost to one of the worst teams in the NFL and then got a very lucky win yesterday, under many circumstances. The Pats offense is the best in the NFL, but more importantly, the defense is finally coming together and plays are being made. Especially in the secondary... Dennard looks solid and is exceeding expectations by far and along with Talib, they make a good combo. McCourty seems to play better at safety anyway. The front 7 is playing amazing with Big Vince dominating the DT position and Brandon spikes making huge steps forward from last year. Houston has the edge right now in my opinion... In 2 weeks when these teams match up, the Texans are gonna have to be playing their absolute best to win.
