The Patriots needed less than seven minutes of game time to erase their latest deficit. But then something surprising happened.
if it seems like it was just a minute ago when the Texans were up 17-7 at halftime, you’re almost right. By the 8:06 mark in the third, they were up 21-17 with little resistance.
A pair of convincing touchdown drives sandwiched around a three-and-out by the Texans offense has turned this the direction everyone saw it going to begin with.
But then Case Keenum drove the Texans downfield, running in from 5 yards out to give them a 24-21 advantage back. Unlike the Broncos a week ago, they’re resisting the Patriots comeback, and threaten to make this interesting.
