Week 13: Houston Texans
At first, the Texans had all of their faith in quarterback Matt Schaub. Then, with a string of interceptions returned for touchdowns and otherwise subpar play, the franchise turned to T.J. Yates, who upon getting his first opportunity threw a pick-six of his own. Now, the quarterback of choice is Case Keenum, who has rediscovered the fountain of touchdowns in Andre Johnson (9 receptions for 229 yards and 3 TDs in Week 9).
But the Texans (2-6) still can't seem to figure out how to win after starting the season 2-0.
This is exactly the kind of team the Patriots beat up on, talented but dysfunctional. They hold opponents to a league low of 273.5 yards per game, but can't seem to overcome their offensive woes.
Who wins: Patriots
Record after game: 8-4
