Player of the Game: Tom Brady

Up 17-7 heading into the fourth quarter, the Patriots are able to bottle up the Texans' rushing attack for most of the game. But when the final quarter rolls around, Houston gets cooking, scoring 14 late points thanks to a couple of spectacular Arian Foster runs to cut New England's lead to 23-21 heading into the final minute of play. Unfortunately for the Texans, their defense fails to make the final stop necessary to get the ball back, and the Patriots pull out the heart-stopper by two.
