Sunday Night wrap-up: Deshaun Watson leads Texans over Patriots

Getty Images

The Patriots had given up four touchdown passes all year.

Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson matched that, and made it more impressive by catching one of them.

The Texans beat the Patriots 28-22, giving that defense the kind of working over they haven’t dealt with this year.

They lost to the Ravens by a larger margin, but that was a running game. Sunday, Watson strafed their pass defense, which no one else had done.

The Texans quarterback finished 18-of-25 for 234 yards and three touchdowns passing.

The finishing touch was by snagging a pass from DeAndre Hopkins on a trick play in the fourth quarter, the kind of capper his performance deserved.

While the Patriots have a Stephon Gilmore to drape on Hopkins out wide (the rare one-on-one matchup which might not always favor Hopkins), Watson was willing to spread the ball around early, working the middle of the field rather than the deep stuff. Watson hit a few plays downfield, but he played a smart game rather than a flashy one.

And it worked.

Here are five more things we learned during Sunday Night Football:

1. The Patriots have serious problems, which is a weird thing to say about a team that’s 10-2 and has six Super Bowl trophies in the case.

For quarterback Tom Brady, it was a second straight sub-par performance against Texas teams. He finished 24-of-47 for 326 yards and three touchdowns and an interception, which sounds better than it was because the Texans chose to play it safe late. Brady completed just 17-of-37 last week in a sloppy win at home against the Cowboys.

It’s not that he’s old, or simply that he misses retired tight end Rob Gronkowski.

He doesn’t look like a guy who trusts his teammates to be at the right place at the right time. Other than known security blanket Julian Edelman (and to a lesser degree James White), there doesn’t appear to be a guy on that offense who Brady doesn’t seem to be regularly scolding/giving positive affirmations and gentle corrections to.

Because the Patriots have mixed it up so often in the past — winning in many different ways — we sort of assume they’re going to continue to.

But without a downfield playmaker or more consistent plays by the guys around him now (including a line wracked by injuries all year), Brady is going to have to play better than he already has in his career if he’s going to win with this bunch.

It’s not impossible. Betting against him now would be foolish. But it’s definitely harder.

2. The win was big for the Texans (8-4) for a number of reasons.

First and foremost, it kept them a game ahead of the surging Titans (7-5) for the AFC South lead.

But it also snapped an eight-game losing streak to the Patriots, dating back to their last win in 2010.

That streak included all five of the previous meetings under coach Bill O’Brien, and not being 0-for in anything is a good thing.

3. The Texans linebackers tempted fate by showing up in costume.

They walked into their home stadium wearing SWAT-team inspired gear, which seemed a little over the top, and certainly a risk.

The 2012 letter-jacket stunt backfired badly, as the 11-1 Texans went to New England and lost 42-14 , and they haven’t beaten the Patriots since then either.

4. The sickness that rolled through the Patriots locker room last week was severe enough to make them take two planes to Houston.

And it kept them from being 100 percent during it.

Right tackle Marcus Cannon had to leave the game for an IV in the second half, and was replaced by Marshall Newhouse. Cannon was able to return to the game.

But as a whole, they looked like a team at something less than 100 percent.

Linebacker Kyle Van Noy appeared to be mocking it after a first-quarter sack, falling to his back and looking exhausted. But by the end of the night, the already thin Patriots appeared to be gassed.

5. The Patriots have made a habit of winning with varying personnel.

But the idea that their only points for the first 44 minutes of the game would be scored by their fourth kicker of the year is ridiculous by their standards.

Kai Forbath hit his 23-yard field goal on the first possession, at the end of the 14-play drive which held such promise.

Forbath’s replacing Nick Folk (appendectomy), who replaced Mike Nugent (missed too many kicks), who replaced the injured Stephen Gostkowski (hip).

He missed an extra point (after they took a delay of game on purpose), so there’s no true security there for him. Such that there is for any kicker. Particularly there.

  1. What a joke. Garbage time Tom trying to pad his stats. Baltimore is a way better team than New England in the AFC. With no cheating and an even playing field, the Patriots are done. Over rated defense too, a bunch of no name stiffs who only like to beat on third string QBs.

  2. I am NOT falling for it. There will be a few dozen posts proclaiming the end of the dynasty on this article, but I never write this team off.

    It’s encouraging, though. They have looked pretty ordinary, and beatable.

  3. Lamar Jackson, Watson, and Mahomes next week. Belichick is going to have to adapt to these new aged QBs or he isnt sniffing another super bowl.

  4. Deshaun had a great night. And people will say a lot about how close the game was. The reality is the Texans pretty much dominated – don’t even know what was up with either team in garbage time. So the Pats scored. Never seen more lazy teams. But Watson did shine. And I am sorry we can keep making excuses but Brady was not good.

    Um. Again.

  5. Dang. Close call with the last onside kick there.

    On to the Chiefs. Champs gotta be better than that in all phases to beat them.

  6. As a life long Pats fan I say there are zero bright spots on this offense and that includes you Brady. The way it looks now I’d be surprised if they score two touchdowns in December.

  7. Houston got sloppy at the end almost had them. Even though the offense struggled until the late 3rd and early 4th quarter the end was encouraging. Belichick needs to stop calling constant blitzes it makes it too vanilla on defense and the Middle of the field is wide open. Gotta play better next week. Nice game Houston.

  8. Brady is not playing at his normal level, but his O line stinks and his receiver talent is on par with Ohio State’s. When he has time in the pocket he is still deadly but his pocket is collapsing the majority of snaps.
    The Pats’ D is overrated. They are good but not elite.
    Baltimore is the team to beat. They are the better 10-2 team with an easier schedule.
    January is a different beast however. The one thing the Pats have as an advantage is they know how to win in January and I think all bets are off once we get there.
    But realistically, name me a QB in the league that would do better with the Patriots’ offensive line and weak receivers. No QB is successful without a clean pocket.

  9. Who does Brady have as a wide receiver.Who does Brady have as tight end.The line is holding on to a string.No running Game.Give Brady something to work with and let’s see is it him or the the offense.

  10. The score made it sound close and TB got to pad his stats late in the game with those 2 TD passes.
    Take those away and he was terrible. He also does not look like he has the velocity on the ball like normal.
    Doesn’t matter, they will find a way to be in the dance come playoff time.
    But I will say this, the more times that teams put on film how to contain Brady the harder it will be for the Pats to beat quality teams.
    Should be a great presser by BB

  11. Tommy is done. Sad to say it. He is scared, flops to the ground, wildly inaccurate, and best of all pouts every game with his body language. Ive seen just about every Brady game and this is it. What are they going to give him 2 elite WRs and an elite TE and an elite RB next season to help him? No. I can separate fandom from reality, he is on the decline and its not pretty.

  12. Even after being lethargic and pathetic the Patriots almost caught up. Oh well… you win some, you lose some.

    —-
    Both. Can’t ask your 42 year old QB to carry your team by himself.

  14. It is funny to hear Patriot fans try come up with excuses for Brady. He had over 3.2 seconds to throw the ball tonight. Offensive line is not the problem. Maybe McDaniels has been mailing it in as an OC or just maybe age has caught up with Tom Brady.

    I heard a telling stat tonight. Brady has the most passing attempts and completions in the NFL but they are the last ranked offense. He may not be able to pass more than 5 yards. Check downs aren’t going to win games against good teams.

  15. The only way this offense wakes up is if TB starts trusting N’Keal Harry. I’m not a Pats fan but appreciate competitive football, I’d sincerely love to see Harry get some opportunities to turn in some Julio-esque physical performances. But as long as they’re relying on Edelman and Ben Watson then I’d say their goose is cooked

  16. I see that the Grim Reaper’s of the patriots dynasty are out tonight, once again.As I have said for the past 12 or so years to the geniuses proclaiming the end of the patriots dynasty… You have been wrong every time so far. One day you will be right and you will still be only half as accurate as a broken clock.

  17. You’re gonna still have to beat this team to get to the super bowl.Believe me,they may look average,watch this team when January rolls around. You must beat the Patriots if you’re going to play for a championship.

    then a week off against the bengals – then Josh Allen!

    I wonder if Belicheats thinking of why he traded Garoppolo right now…..

  19. It has to end sometime… they’re way past due for a bad run. I’ll say this… I think the Bills can win the division. Wouldn’t that be something?

  20. Please stop with this, “Who does he have at WR? His Oline is bad.” Stop. When they drafted Harry, every Pats fan said he was the next Moss. Edelman is a HOF’er. Sanu is a solid #3. James White is like a #4 WR. Yes, Tom could have a traffic cone as TE and get the same results as Watson/Izzo/LaGlass. Every Pats fan said once Wynn came back, like he was Anthony Munoz, they were gonna roll. Face it, Sony is below average. Their Oline is good but not great and their WR’s are above average. Tom is holding them back

  21. Something needs to change for Pats to reach the Super Bowl this season. I don’t know what this is, but there’s no way they’re reaching Super Bowl with things as they are right now.

  22. Patriots need home field advantage more than any team in the league. They usually get it because they have played in the worst division of pro sports for 2 decades.

    When they SHOW you on tv his we. Not Getting separation do you not believe what you are seeing?

  24. Really? Sickness? Up until then your points were good with me. They got outplayed. The same names were on the field that make (or did make) all the play. Brady. Edelman. White. hightower. I mean at some point it has to stop with excuses. Passer rating. SOS. MOV over teams that actually have a winning record.

  25. Orlovsky pointed out a lack of trust between Brady and his receivers right now. Pointed out Brady saying to Josh “I’m done with him” after Dorsett blew a route thst caused a Brady long ball to be thrown to an invisible receiver. That’s… not good. Get with the program fellas! 😮

    Get with the program fellas! 😮

  27. They looked disinterested most of the game. The flu bug didn’t help and neither did some relatively inconsistent to bad officiating. Brady looks awful and is throwing the ball badly, they don’t trust the run game consistently, and the lack of urgency was alarming at best. You can’t make mistakes because even mediocre teams can beat you.

  28. If AB comes back and the NFL allows him to play that is like egg on the face of the league.
    That just goes to show you it has zero to do with integrity and more to do with wins and losses.

  29. If AB comes back and the NFL allows him to play that is like egg on the face of the league.
    That just goes to show you it has zero to do with integrity and more to do with wins and losses.

  30. That’s the best thing that could happen to the Patriots. More than that, they should end up as a wildcard. Then, the stage would be set for the emergence of their ‘world against us’ magic, and possibly… another ring.

  31. I love the revisionism.

    Fact: The referees carried Mediocre Deshaun and the Texans to the win. One of the most blatant and obvious examples of the NFL throwing a game in history.

  32. Brady is a statue in the pocket unable to escape the pocket and extend plays. Brady is a liability for the Patriots. Watching him run is an embarrassment. He has zero athletic ability. Patriots need to move on from brady asap if they want to beat the great teams with more mobile qbs. Hopkins exposed “the best Cornerback in the game”. The Patriots are OVERRATED. They’ll lose again next week when Mahomes destroys them. I hope brady plays for another three years. It’s funny watching him try to play against great young athletes. Brady moves like he has cement in his shoes and falls to the ground and rolls into a ball like an armadillo when he sees pressure.

  33. Hats off to the Texans they played better and won the game, the pats never quit and never will onto kc.🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆

  34. Put Stidham or Hoyer in. They can’t be worse than “low energy Tom”.

    This is what happens when the patriots play decent teams, and it’s in category 3+ hurricane conditions, and refball doesn’t come into play.

    The Texans got sloppy towards the end. This game was over at 21-3.

    Exposed.

  35. Finally this overrated cheating organization is finished. Ravens have always been better and won the title this year because of Lamar Jackson a great running attack and an elite defense. 3 legit titles beat 6 tainted ones any day of the week.

  36. I remember reading the geniuses burying the Patriots last year at about this time. Oh yeah they won the super bowl – sending many naysayers quietly and tearfully into the offseaso. I know their problems are different this season but I wouldn’t count them out just yet.

  37. The haters are out. Twenty years. Twenty, of watching your teams get beaten time and time again has you all hopeful that this is the end. Well, they may not win a Super Bowl this year, but they’ll keep several other teams from getting there for awhile longer. Every year there is wild speculation and jubilation that the Patriots are finally done. And, last year they lost five road games to teams that didn’t make the playoffs. How’d that turn out? They are 10-2 and 3 of last 4 are in Foxboro. We are on to tamiflu…and then KC!

  38. Pretty obvious watching the Pats offense that, they miss Gronk badly.

    I would hesitate before counting them out in January though….

    It wasn’t pretty. Why pass on a 4th and inches ? 10-2. One game at a time. Counting out the Pats is a bet I’ll take.

    perhaps because Pats had a 3d stringer playing center and 4 very big Houston defenders over the top. If the ball hits you in the hands on 4th down & you are a pro-player, you have to hold on. Only defense is Sanu may still be nursing an ankle injury.

  40. Any other team is 10-2 and we’re talking rising stars, big contracts, bright future… Pats drop a game after a flu bug and its “serious problems”, “no Super Bowl”… After 4 of 5 Super Bowls, I guess ‘Super Bowl’ becomes the norm. I’ll take it.
    Heck, last week, Prescott came in flying high, 3 TD passes per game for 3 games, “contract season” talk again. That fizzled quickly.
    Ask Bill O’Brien what he thinks of Patriots “garbage time” had Bolden come up with that onside kick with 50 seconds to go…

    . . .
    I heard a telling stat tonight. Brady has the most passing attempts and completions in the NFL but they are the last ranked offense. He may not be able to pass more than 5 yards. Check downs aren’t going to win games against good teams.

    Your stats are wrong. Brady isn’t throwing check downs. His average completed air yards (vertical yards on a pass attempt at moment ball is caught) is better than that of Brees, Rodgers, Garappolo, among others. Brady also is top 5 in total passing yards, ahead of Watson, Rodgers, Brees, Wilson, Mahomes, Jackson, Wilson & a bunch of others.

    Other than Edelman, he has not had a single deep wide receiver that has been there & healthy all season.

  42. Does anyone think that’s Tom’s antics on the sideline are really pumping anyone up? Between that and the pouting it’s got to be getting old. His teammates are starting to tune out the same way they did for Ray Lewis in Baltimore at the end

    I thought Tommy was “done” when the Chiefs beat him big (41-14; 159 yards; 2 picks) in 2014, 3 SB rings ago?

  44. Brady is all done, the players are tuning him out, other teams finally figured out the secret “cheating” magic that luckily propelled them to 6 Super Bowl victories (always a favorite delusional crutch)…….Still a-wishin’ and a-hopin’’ as usual.

    All these comments really show is just how much Patriots PTSD you have and for just how long.

    Most teams you root for are already on to “wait ‘til next year” and the Pats are still in the hunt to go 14-2…..and are livid about how they’re playing.

    Bad combo for the rest of the league in December.

    Dominance? They have a great audio video and equipment staff ill give them that. System QB Tommy has never been a good QB without cheating. Lamar Jackson’s career is more legit than his. So isn’t Joe Flaccos.

    I still enjoy watching highlights of the fear in Bradys eyes when future HOFer Terrell Suggs came for him.

  46. Despite the score, this was another clown stomping suffered by a team that really hasn’t won a game (the refs won it) since Baltimore. Each of these losses showed total domination by the winners and total submission by the losers with virtually nothing left in the tank. Of course, the deluded Tylaw clown will claim that Belicheat lost the game on purpose but that shows you the fan mindset that allowed cheating to be part of the game.

  47. Personnel decisions by the de-facto GM is coming back to haunt the Pats. Remember all those questionable trades that yielded next to nothing at the beginning of the year? Tom Brady is no longer the best QB in the league, but he is still pretty damn good at 42. The ego to think that O line was enough for him to work and the lack of a RUN game in DECEMBER is troubling, unlike what we have seen in previous years.

    The Pats D is going to really need to step up

    Patriot fans talking about meeting lamar Jackson in superbowl and not what is still in front of them first.
    ——————————————————

    Honestly, why even bother? Even Jets fans know it’s impossible for the Pats to meet Baltimore in the Super Bowl.

    Tip of the cap to Houston on the win. Pats clearly have a bit to figure out and there may or may not be enough healthy pieces to do it but anyone counting them out clearly hasn’t been paying attention the past 18 seasons.

  49. Lots of “20 years/6 rings” comments from Pats fans. Their transition to being Yankees fans is complete.

    Patriots nation: other teams’ fans care about those #’s exactly as much as you care when a Yankees fan says “27.”

  50. “It’s not that he’s old,…”

    Oh, yes it is. The Tom Brady ship has sailed. Too bad that Brady himself is too egotistical to realize it.

  51. The only guy getting open lately is Edelman and he’s a short slot receiver. Guys are running wrong routes on timing plays. Michel can’t catch a cold so you can’t throw to him when he’s on the field and everyone knows it. The Pats went from the greatest TE of all time (run blocking and receiving) to the worst TE production in the league. No reliable outside threats.

    But Brady is old and that’s all there is to it?

    Ok.

  52. Being successful for close to 100 years is much different than 2 decades- when there was 10 years between titles ….they were below average in the first 40 years and they will return to mediocrity as well
    The Yankees hold much more clout than NE could ever dream of …………

  53. To all members of Patriot Hater Nation…

    The joy that is evident in your comments in the wake of yesterday’s game is obvious and understandable. If my team had been frustrated and repeatedly beaten by the Patriots for nearly 20 years, I would be thrilled to think that those beatings were just about over, too. The delusional, distorted, and lame comments about the prolonged genius of Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are predictable…they have also be ongoing for nearly 20 years. The factual basis for the vast majority of these cheap shots is virtually non-existent, starting with ignorance of the laws of physics and compounded by the belief in the irrational yet pre-meditated decisions that have come from the suits at 345 Park Ave.

    Just know this…the fun, thrills, joy, and memories that the Patriots have provided for a full generation are bulletproof. You will try and diminish and demean their accomplishments, you will try and drag the franchise name through the mud, you will try and re-write history, but you will fail. Now and forever, you will fail.

  54. “Put Stidham or Hoyer in…”
    LOL – a true troll. You know Hoyer signed with Indy before the season, right?

  55. Bolden comes up cleanly with that kick and Texans’ fans would have been experiencing cardiac arrest. You need to play 60 minutes. Texans played well, but take away one Brady INT and it might have all been different.

  56. I’m not that impressed with the 2019 edition, but I’m not ready to bury the Pats dynasty just yet.

    But just a reminder for all you fans of “the other 31”: the Pats dynasty WILL end, inevitably. But the day it happens, you don’t get to dance on the grave, you don’t get to bathe in the blood. You guys didn’t end it, it just simply ran its course. This is a ruthless dictator who terrorized three generations of your family dying in his sleep at 110 years old. You didn’t stage a successful coup d’etat. The Patriots generally owned this league for a full two decades, if they weren’t champs, they were always formidable. Nobody ever did it this long, and they’ll probably cancel the sport entirely for safety concerns before anyone else tops it. Don’t you dare celebrate on that day. Just be relieved that your nightmare is finally over.

    Only Pats fans talk like this. Man, do you guys take yourselves seriously. Honestly, a few losing seasons will be good for you.

    And please don’t tell me what to do on that day. I will celebrate like crazy. I will drink good champagne, eat the best caviar and smile for a very long time. I will definitely celebrate.

  58. Texans executed a good defensive plan double-teaming Edelman, making Brady throw to other guys. That last Pats drive looked as if neither teamed cared.

    Good win for the Texans. Pats are “only” 10-2.

    Not sure what BB’s problem is with BOB but poor sportsmanship never looks good.

  59. Tampering with front office personnel seldom creates warm and fuzzy feelings between teams, dualprime…

  60. I’ve heard the “Pats are dead” mantra before. In 2009, after the embarrassment on a Monday night in NO, and after the Ravens pummeled them in the WC round. In 2013 when their offense struggled and Denver was flying high. In 2014 after the Chiefs loss. Last year after Miami and Pittsburgh. They don’t look good right now.Maybe they are done. But a word to the wise… pronounce them done when they actually are, and not a minute sooner than that.

  61. It’s like someone copied and pasted the comment section following the road loss to Pittsburgh last year. Then they ran the table.

    Do any of you mental midgets ever get tired of being jealous — and wrong. Let’s see if Baltimore even wins the SB this year. Then let’s see if they could stay relevant for more than one consecutive season.

  62. If Bolden doesn’t muff that onside kick, you know what would have happened…

    I think the Pats are exactly where they want to be: a team that hasn’t really figured out what they are yet on offense…and then they start to peak when they want to. by the time the playoffs roll around, their offense won’t have any real film for teams to dissect.

    Just watch them start playing better by week 15. every year, they slump sometime during the season. everybody writes them off.

    and in February they hoist the lombardi trophy.

    ____________________________________

    Seriously, Lofty. if you are not aware that they cannot “meet in the Super Bowl” you need to stay off football boards and study up some.

  65. The Pats didn’t play a good game and obviously the offense is an issue and their defense is good but not elite. But the piling on from other fans seems too much which reflects more of their insecurity. And what happens if they win another Super Bowl? Even if they are in decline after 20 years, that’s a record any fan would take. Hell, as a Bears fan I would take a quarter of that success! Again, I am not a real team fan so it means nothing to me. I just want to watch good games. Would love to see a Ravens vs 49er rematch!

    ——————

    Garbage time points? They scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter and came very close to picking up the onside kick and an opportunity for another. They were in garbage time during Super Bowl LI, too. Brady is second only to Manning in 4Q comebacks, and would likely have more except that his team is so often ahead by the fourth quarter.

    Seahawks were playing the Vikings. Despite their similar records, the Texans and the Vikings are VERY different quality-wise.
