The New England Patriots defeated the Houston Texans 27-0 and put the rest of the league on notice.
The offensive line is as good as its ever been, as is RB LeGarrette Blount, and the offense is still waiting for QB Tom Brady and TE Rob Gronkowski to be involved.
On defense, the Patriots were able to blank one of the most expensive units in the league without captain LB Dont’a Hightower. The secondary shut down a talented group of receivers and ED Jabaal Sheard finally showed up as a pass rusher.
There’s a lot to love. I’ve broken it all down over Facebook Live.
