Patriots Jump Out to 21-0 Lead over Texans

Michael Ivins-USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots jumped out to a quick lead over the Houston Texans, taking a 21-0 advantage on three Tom Brady touchdowns.

Things are going well for the Patriots early in the second quarter, as they have taken a quick 21-0 lead over the Houston Texans at Gillette Stadium.

The Patriots have shut down Houston on all three of their possessions, and were highlighted on that side of the ball by a Devin MCourty interception.

On offense, the Patriots have churned up yards through the ground and in the air. Tom Brady connected with Aaron Hernandez for a seven yard touchdown on the opening drive, Brandon Lloyd on a deep 37 yard throw for the score on the second drive, and Aaron Hernandez on a two yard score on the third drive.

There's still a long way to go, but it would be hard to imagine a better start.
