Player of the Game: Tom Brady

Last time these two teams played, the Texans were humiliated on national TV. This time around, the Patriots still win, but the game is a lot closer than many expect. In fact, Houston scores 10 fourth-quarter points to pull within a touchdown late, but the Pats are able to grind out the remaining time on the clock thanks to some quick strikes across the middle from Tom Brady to Rob Gronkowski, as well as some timely first-down runs by Stevan Ridley.
