Houston Texans

The painful loss in New England left the Texans with a lot to digest, says John McClain of the Houston Chronicle.

The defense was no match for Tom Brady, says Tania Ganguli of the Chronicle.

Five things Jerome Solomon of the Chronicle learned.

“The Houston Texans might still earn the No. 1 seed in the AFC, and maybe even compile the NFL's best record this season,” says Don Banks of SI.com. “And if so, good for them. But I think Monday night in Gillette Stadium proved that we shouldn't let the window dressing and fluff count for too much when it comes to Gary Kubiak's talented team.”

The Texans' pass defense has been exposed again as fraudulent, says Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports.

The Patriots put the Texans in their place, says Mike Freeman of CBSsports.com.

Indianapolis Colts

Losing 14 games one season and making the playoffs the next season like the Colts are on the verge of doing is a rare accomplishment, says Mike Chappell of the Indianapolis Star.

A hotel valet was arrested after police say he stole Reggie Wayne’s car, says Kristine Guerra of the Star.

Jacksonville Jaguars

“It’s been a frustrating year for (Mel) Tucker, his defense and the Jaguars. Ranked sixth a year ago, the defense is ranked 31st and was gashed on the ground the last two weeks by the Bills and Jets as the Jaguars fell to 2-11,” writes Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union. “And for the second year in a row, Tucker doesn’t know what the future holds for him at the end of the season”

Guy Whimper is having fun with his chances at tight end, says Ryan O’Halloran of the Times-Union.

Tennessee Titans

Mike Munchak hopes people are patient with Jake Locker and said he can’t worry about his job security right now, writes Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.

“On the same day he learned he would miss the rest of the season with a shoulder injury, tight end Jared Cook was selected Titans Community Man of the Year,” writes John Glennon of The Tennessean.
