The New England Patriots offense struggled for a few drives as the Houston Texans defenders were having a field day against the New England offensive line. But an interception and 39-yard return by Stephon Gilmore set the Patriots up on the Texans 12-yard line.

Tom Brady and the offense took advantage of the field position as Chris Hogan was wide open for an easy score.

Apparently Texans cornerback Jonathan Joseph ran into fellow defender Bernardrick McKinney, allowing Hogan to spring wide open. The Patriots now lead 14-10.
