New England Patriots
The New England Patriots are in the middle of one of their most disappointing seasons and they are now two games below against the Tennessee Titans and Las Vegas Raiders. They would need to win this game to keep their chances of making the playoffs alive. They are on a good track as they came out from a four-game losing streak to winning back-to-back games. The first one was against the bottom-dwelling New York Jets but the last one was more convincing as they won over the tough Baltimore Ravens by six points with the help of Cam Newton doing 118 yards and a touchdown.
Players to watch: C. Newton QB (GP 7 CMP 130 ATT 191 CMP% 68.1 YDS 1417 AVG 7.4 YDS/G 249.6 LNG 49 TD 2 INT 7 SACK 12 SYL 66 RTG 77.9), D. Harris RB (GP 5 ATT 63 YDS 350 AVG 5.6 LNG 41 BIG 3 TD 1 YDS/G 70 FUM 0 LST 0 FD 13, D. Byrd WR GP 8 REC 26 TGTS 41 YDS 337 AVG 13 TD 0 LNG 31 BIG 6 YDS/G 42.1 FUM 1 LST 0 YAC 79 FD 17).
The Houston Texans are probably not thinking of making it to the NFL Playoffs already as they hold a 2-7 record and sits at the bottom four of the AFC standings. After a tough four-game losing streak to start the season, the team finds themselves on a better percentage winning two of their last five. They engaged in a low-scoring affair against the Cleveland Browns during their last game as the score ended at 7-10, with the Texans losing. The team was held scoreless mostly in the game as they scored a touchdown just 4:59 in the fourth quarter with Deshaun Watson giving Pharoah Brown a 16-yard pass.
Players to Watch: D. Watson QB (GP 8 CMP 185 ATT 271 CMP% 68.3 YDS 2376 AVG 8.8 YDS/G 321.6 LNG 77 TD 17 INT 5 SACK 24 SYL 130 RTG 108.7), D. Johnson RB (GP 8 ATT 103 YDS 408 AVG 4 LNG 29 BIG 1 TD 3 YDS/G 51 FUM 0 LST 0 FD 23), W. Fuller V WR (GP 8 REC 36 TGTS 52 YDS 590 AVG 16.4 TD 6 LNG 77 BIG 8 YDS/G 73.8 FUM 0 LST 0 YAC 166 FD 26).
