Texans 41 Patriots 24 The Texans stormed out to an early 31-3 lead, paced by Arian Foster and a tremendous defensive effort. The Pats would answer, as Brady connected on several deep passes to Wes Welker, Rob Gronkowski, and Shane Vereen. In the end, it was too little, too late, and the Texans walk out of Gillette with a victory to improve to 8-5. Arian Foster was the star of the show, dashing for 259 yards on 23 carries and 3 scores. Ben Tate added 70 yards on 19 carries. Matt Schaub only threw 4 balls, but completed 3 of them for 51 yards. Defensively, the Texans picked Brady off 7 times. CB Brice McCain had 4 of the 7, incredibly. The Houston D also pressured Brady all day, as they collected 5 sacks (2 by Whitney Mercilus). Good game whoozy11. Those picks made the difference. GL moving forward.
