Assuming that Hoston pulls this game out and travels to Foxboro. It was what? about a month ago that they were beaten down?? I listened to the Houston Radio station the next day and they too were confused and had self doubt. That's why i'd go against conventional wisdom!. If the Pats win the coin flip i'd receive and not defer. Starting off, Houston will be doubting themselves. They're an outstanding football team but after what happened last month, you would not be human if you didn't wonder; "will it happen again" ? The Pats have the best offence in football. Putting points on the board the opening drive only accentuates the nagging fears of the Texans which in turn becomes a growing snowball and ending in a Pats victory!!
