So much for the warnings that Brady finally has his age catch up to him...

Brady's definitely still got a lot of game in him, and we all know from experience that he can make an offense of practice-squad players look like dynamite, but the injury pace needs to slow down, or it will take its toll.

Thought Wise, Jones and Dorsett looked terrific.

Fairly dissapointing from Solder, Gilmore and Cooks. However, Im not worried about any of those guys. Pretty confident they will figure it out.

Just getting a chance to tune in here.  What the heck is happening, and why?!

Hal, the CB for Houston just lead with his helmet to break up a play.  Grabbed his leg and stayed down for a minute or two, then jogged off.  It looked like a concussion.  Tough to watch after hearing about the recent studies and Hernandez.

Incredible.  Brady never ceases to amaze.

Wait, I've seen this one before. Brady marches them down the field with two minutes to go to win the game.

I wish that they would stop showing all of these re-runs on the weekends.

Another heart-stopper.   Houston owned this one and really let it get away.  Pats had a lot of calls and breaks go their way today -- none bigger than Brady's fumble near the end falling right to Andrews.  Very fortunate to take this one.  Pats D needs to get quite a bit better.    Great job Brandon Cooks getting feet in and cradling the ball.

Another great win for the offense, but Belichick has to figure out what's wrong with the defense. Rookie QBs shouldn't be able to score that much against the SB Champions at home.

 :laugh:Yeah, he has to retire. He has an unfair age advantage.

Tom Brady, the guy who is entirely unaffected by the heat because of the ice water running through his veins.

To be fair, 7 points came off that Brady fumble scooped up for a TD (bad O-Line play).

Defense wasn't great though, I agree, and the reason is because ZERO pass rush. It's no surprise our secondary gets tired fairly quick and as a result looks mediocre later in the game. Give ANY QB 10 seconds to throw per play and they will make you pay.

But glad they buckled down a little late and forced HOU into those FG's, which is what the Pats do best (give up a ton of yards and small plays but keep you out of the endzone).

Not too worried. Even in 2014-2015 it took the guys about 5-6 weeks to gel with Revis, Browner, ETC., and they were red hot in the 2nd half of the season into the playoffs. Malcolm Butler had a great game too, which is encouraging. Need Hightower back, he's the anchor to this defense.

Deshaun Watson and Tom Brady having a moment after the game:



But in all seriousness, Watson played a helluva game. Pats defense couldn't bring him down and he made some great throws. He impressed me. Definitely could become a great QB in the league.
