NFL Odds: Patriots Host Texans As Near-Touchdown Favorites In Week 1


Watson said before practice on Wednesday that he's just ready to be back on the field with his teammates, "I'm very excited just to be able to get back in action. this is the start of the season".

The Texans will take on the Patriots at 1 p.m. ET Sunday. You want to start your season on the right foot, and getting a win is a great way to do it.

In a recent interview shared by Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, Brady stated that he is still hoping to play five more NFL seasons. None of New England's offseason gambles at wide receiver paid off, and with Danny Amendola now in Miami, Brandin Cooks now in Los Angeles and Julian Edelman suspended, Brady is going to have shoulder the load alongside Rob Gronkowski and another rotation of running backs.

Brady seemed to be referencing head coach Bill Belichick, who is in his 19th year in the role.

New England has dominated the Texans since they entered the National Football League in 2002, posting SU wins in nine of 10 meetings, and takes a flawless 6-0 SU home record against Houston into Sunday afternoon's Texans vs. Patriots betting matchup at Gillette Stadium.

Houston quarterback Deshaun Watson isn't overthinking things as he prepares for his first game on Sunday at New England since a season-ending knee injury last November. Instead, he says he remembers that he and the offense "had the opportunity to put the game away and we didn't". And once you stop you're done. I think that not pushing things too hard and not pushing it too far early was key. "I mean, this guy had beaten Alabama in a national championship game in front of 100,000 people on national television and nearly did it the year before".

While progressive groups are turning up the pressure on Collins, the senator said she is going through careful deliberations. Kavanaugh answered, "I'm not - I'm not - I'm not thinking of any right now, senator".

Now I don't expect Brady to all of a sudden forget how to play quarterback, but he will now be under a microscope. The last couple years, a lot of parts about football weren't enjoyable when they should have been", Brady said in an epilogue of the "Tom vs.

"Obviously, we're both AFC teams, so a lot of times, playing in these early games [determines] a lot of things down the line".

Watson played exceptionally well last season against the Patriots, he finished the game with a 66.67 completion percentage and a total of 301 passing yards, as well as throwing for two touchdowns. They don't really count for me, they dropped me, gave me a little bit of time, Nelly [Eagles WR Nelson Agholor] got on the edge and made a great throw. "But, I'm going with the Packers to win over the Bears at home".

J.J. Watt smiles and chuckles quietly when asked if he's heard from Houston Texans fans who can't wait to see if he'll be the player he once was. The Texans begin the season with a healthy trio of Watt, Mercilus and Jadeveon Clowney. "Rodney was a good blitzer", Belichick said.

He did admit that retirement has been on his mind and that he knows the end of his career is coming quickly.
