Week 1 Patriots vs Texans: Tom Brady to James White puts New England up 14-3

New England adds to its lead.

NFL: Houston Texans at New England Patriots David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots are currently playing a good game against a talented Houston Texans team – and had their best offensive series of the game late in the first quarter extending into the second. The 10-play, 75 yard series saw the Patriots use their entire offensive arsenal: Cordarrelle Patterson had a run, Chris Hogan caught a pass, and Tom Brady converted a fourth-and-short to keep the drive alive.

The 10th and final play saw James White score the Patriots’ second touchdown of the day:

With Rex Burkhead as the feature early down back, White is having a comparatively quiet game so far. However, his first reception of the day instantly helped New England increase its lead to 14-3. The Texans answered with a field goal drive, but the Patriots will have a chance to continue their offensive momentum – and possibly add to their lead on the next possession.
