The New England Patriots defense is playing at a historic level and are coming off a dominant showing against one of the top offenses in the NFL with the Dallas Cowboys. They’ll face another big challenge this week as they travel to Houston to take on Deshaun Watson, DeAndre Hopkins, and the rest of the Texans offense.

Can Stephon Gilmore and company continue to dominate the competition? Or will Watson copy Lamar Jackson and break through?

And will Tom Brady and the offense finally get on track? It’s been a couple months since the Patriots offense has played at a level that resembles anything like other Patriots offenses of the past decade, so can New England get on track against a defense that is missing its cornerstone in J.J. Watt?

Also, the Patriots can clinch a playoff spot with a victory and one other game going their way!
