In two days, the New England Patriots’ campaign to retake the Vince Lombardi Trophy begins: the team will host the Houston Texans in both teams’ regular season opener. While the home team is favored to win the contest, it projects to be an intriguing game featuring one of the NFL’s best offenses going against a potentially premier defense – all while two possibly up-and-coming units square off when the Patriots’ defense tries to stop the Texans’ offense.
