           Rook33′s Pick

Looking at the struggles of the Texans its easy to look at Patriots to roll over the Texans. However the Texans last 5 games with Keenum they have lost by 1,3,3,5 and 7. Patriots coming off an emotional victory and incredible comeback even though Patriots may still win game  this defense is allowing points.  This is probably the Super Bowl to this Texans team and looking to see a game similar to the Seahawks game earlier in the season. UPSET PICK OF WEEK TEXANS +7.5
