There’s nothing worse than watching the New England Patriots and Houston Texans play one another. The pre-game hype becomes nothing but a bunch of rear-quarters kissing where the two teams try and out-compliment one another. One such example was Patriots head coached Bill Belichick throwing away his usual tight lipped responses to reporters for a gush-fest on his favorite opposing coach, Bill O’Brien.
The NFL postseason has a remarkable habit of stunning unsuspecting fans with enthralling tales of underdog heroics. A single-game elimination system sets the table for dramatic twists and turns more commonplace for a Hollywood thriller. Sometimes the football gods grease the wheels for an upset with a fumble or remarkable Hail Mary loaded with the power to defy the odds and rewrite history.
New England once again ended 2016 atop the NFL mountaintop with a league-leading 14 wins and plus-192-point differentials. Houston, on the other hand, crawled past a mediocre AFC South without J.J. Watt and received another fortunate break when the Oakland Raiders were forced to start third-string quarterback Connor Cook rather than budding star Derek Carr.
