The New England Patriots have the easiest opponent in the Divisional Round and are favored by 16-points. The Houston Texans have overachieved all year, lucked into facing a rookie quarterback in the Wild Card Round, and their magical ride should end on Saturday...right?
Or do the Texans have an actual shot of beating the Patriots? Does the snowy forecast help or hurt the Patriots passing attack? Do the Texans now have the best defense in the playoffs?
Or are we trying to hype up a weak team in the same way that Patriots head coach Bill Belichick hypes up a third string special teamer in his pre-game press conferences?
