The Houston Texans look to go back above .500 against the New England Patriots, our writers guess the winner as well as the final score

The Houston Texans sit at 6-6 and look to hand the New England Patriots their third straight loss on SUnday Night Football. Houston is 1-2 so far against the AFC East as they beat the New York Jets, but lost to the Dolphins earlier this season (in embarrassing fashion). They lost to the Bills this past weekend.

Now they face a Pats team that is injured all over the place. They are also most likely in a bad mood after being beaten by the 5-7 Philadelphia Eagles last week.

This most likely means the Patriots will be more focused than ever, so Houston has to be ready to win each and every snap if they want to get back above .500 on the year.

So can the Texans pull it off? Our staff here at the Toro Times takes a stab at what the outcome of the game will be. If you like the writer’s work, click on their name to see more of their work. Also, feel free to keep the discussion going by telling us your predictions in the comment box below.
