NFL Divisional Playoffs: Houston Texans vs. New England Patriots

This game isn’t about whether the Patriots will beat the Texans; it’s whether they’ll be able to cover the spread.

I believe it’s also the biggest point spread of the season, when you factor in the regular season. But this is a playoff game! The Patriots whipped the Texans 27-0 without Tom Brady earlier this year. They’ll be at the top of their game offensively, and Brock Osweiler will falter like I had projected him to falter last week. Patriots 31, Texans 10.
