It is the first day of fall and I almost forgot how much I LOVE Thursday's in the fall and all they represent. I'm not talking Bonfire's, Sweaters, or even pumpkins spice latte's (which are delicious IMO), but Thursday Night Football being the begging of the shit show that is a full weekend parked on my couch watching any game I can get my eyes on. This week, the NFL got it right, by basically giving all of the NFL a night to bitch about how much better this game would be if hitler Goodell hadn't suspended Brady for literally doing nothing. I digress, Lets get into this Thursday Night Matchup.
Texans vs. Patriots (even)
If you were to look at this game logically, this should be a no brainer. Pats have an untested third string QB who's never seen the field, and is a relatively unknown entity. The Texans defense is STOUT, JJ Watt is the best defensive player in the league, they have a top 3 front 7. On the Offensive side of the ball, Deandre Hopkins is a top 5 receiver and lamar miller is a STUD RB.
Here's the problem with all that: the state and rules of nature seem not to apply to the Pats. Qb's go down, star tight ends don't play, injury's across the board and they still just get the job done. Bill Belichick is a God amongst coaches and is getting up there in the convo for greatest NFL head coach of all time (sorry Bill Walsh). With Gronk coming back, I think they find a way to get a W.
Everything you need to know about the yay.
