In yet another fourth quarter FAIL, our New England Patriots blow a 21 point lead in the final quarter to give the Texans a potential shot at a wild card berth. A Bernard Pollard interception of a Tom Brady pass gave Houston the final score they needed to ice the game. In what looked like a great drive by backup Brian Hoyer, an excellent pass putting the Patriots on the Texans' 13. A Stephen Neal hold brought the ball back.
But the story of the day is Wes Welker's knee injury. Now, before people start piling on Belichick about playing starters, an injury like that could happen to anyone at anytime. Hindsight's 20/20; it would've been impossible to predict that injury. It's my guess Felger and all the other morons at 98.5 will be hammering NE for not sitting starters.
Houston's defense stepped up when needed and got the job done. Matt Schaub did a good job of finding the weak spots in our secondary and collecting 21 unanswered points in the final quarter. Props to the Texans.
Now it's time to think about the post season. It appears we've picked up the 4th seed meaning we'll host the 5th seed in Foxboro, MA. Here we go.
