The Houston Texans defense is nothing to joke about. Watson would them throw his first interception of the game which Brady would turn into a quick touchdown for the Patriots and a 14-10 lead.
Tom Brady doing Tom Brady things. again.
Welcome to Week three New England Patriots fans.
But against Houston, Cooks broke created enough space deep along the left sideline for a 44-yard gain to set up the Patriots' first touchdown, then broke away from his defender on a crossing route for a 42-yard score in the third quarter. Facing rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson, the Patriots trailed 33-28. Watson is solid, but the Patriots will know exactly what to exploit when attacking him on defense. The defending Super Bowl champions will need another strong effort when they face the Houston Texans on Sunday (10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET, CBS, DirecTV). He has played pretty well in his first couple games and he is only gonna improve over time. He also pulled a Houdini act late in the fourth quarter to allude multiple Patriots defenders and hit running back D'Onta Foreman for a 34-yard gain.More news: New Orleans Saints vs. Carolina Panthers: Prediction, preview, pick to win

In Week 1 against the Kansas City Chiefs, Amendola was one of the bright spots for the Patriots.
Speaking at a political rally in Huntsville, Alabama, on Friday night, President Donald Trump called on National Football League owners to fire players who disrespected the anthem. Behind a Texans offensive line that could've played much better, Watson was cool under pressure and made plays happen, including 41 rushing yards of his own. The rookie quarterback hit on throws despite taking hits from the Patriots on a consistent basis.
On offense Brady will be forced to get the ball out of his hands quick and utilizes the short passing game, and his long list of capable wide receivers will give him plenty of options.
