After watching another brutal outing for the Raiders in the afternoon window, let’s try to forget about that for a moment as we tune into a Sunday Night Football showdown between the Patriots and Texans.
Two AFC contenders square up in a game where New England is favored by 3.5 points despite most of the team suffering through the flu this week. The Patriots have a tendency to struggle with running quarterbacks because they primarily play man coverage, so expect Deshaun Watson to have success scrambling.
At the very least, we won’t have to watch the Raiders get killed in this one. Plus, we can imagine how brutally the Chiefs will be beaten by either of these teams in the playoffs.
Here’s your open game thread. Who do you have taking this one?
