Texans do everything you need to do in recent years to beat the Pats in the playoffs. Good D with a disruptive pass rush that can force Brady slightly off his game early. Great running attack. I have Pats 28-24, but I could easily see that going the other way.
Brady did throw 6 TD against the Broncos last year. This overrated Texans defense (the Texans gave up 331 points this season which is the exact same amount the "horrible" Patriots defense) isn't much better than the Denver defense last year or this year's Pats' defense.
