Are Texans for real? Week 1 vs. Patriots an early litmus test

The last time the Patriots played the Texans, a 36-33 New England win last September 24 in Foxboro, Tom Brady took a beating, getting hit eight times, sacked on five occasions, fumbling three times, one a strip sack that outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney turned into a 22-yard second-quarter touchdown. "Time" docuseries posted to Facebook on Wednesday, the star Patriots quarterback acknowledged what he struggled with could have been his approach and being in the same environment for so many years.

"In Cincinnati, I think I played them every year so I got quite familiar with those guys", said Hill, who indeed did play the Texans each year from 2014-2017, carrying the ball 38 times for 127 yards (a 3.3-yard average) and one touchdown and catching five passes for 16 yards.

This offseason, for the first time, Brady skipped out on reporting to Gillette Stadium in April.

Brady now has a better understanding of the noise that is around him and how to manage dealing with it given that increased scrutiny at the tail end of last season. "I want to be the best quarterback I can be and that requires a big commitment on a daily effort".

In predicting his 2018 NFL MVP, Nate Burleson of Good Morning Football on the NFL Network said his choice for the Most Valuable Player is Deshaun Watson. They want to talk about a lot of drama.

The illness, caused by the Legionella bacteria, can lead to pneumonia in people who are at higher risk of getting sick. One person sickened in Nashua contracted the disease out of state and the other didn't have a ties to Hampton.

"To just get here in April and be elected a captain says all you need to know about that guy". Maybe he can guilt whoever the fantasy owner is into trading Brady to him without having to give up much. I think any time you're together with people for a long period of time, relationships ebb and flow. "Whatever everyone else thinks doesn't affect my day-to-day life, but I'm going to go out there and try and make those people I mentioned proud". So, both offenses are sure to be high powered and a lot of fun to watch.

Gronkowski is already considered one of the most dominant athletes to ever grace the tight end position, and yet he'd be the clearly less athletic player in a duo with James. Nothing's that big a deal to me anymore.

New England is hoping that Brady can stick around for another five seasons. It would be like getting close to the top of the mountain and going, 'Ah, it's good, I'm good.' No. "I would love to play 41, 42, 43, 44, 45".

"It will be a challenge for me". But I think I can do it. It's (expletive) going to be hard to do. But I think I can do it. Tom Brady only played three series in the first half before giving way to Brian Hoyer, and Wes Welker tore his ACL. And once you stop you're done.

"It's been a long road, it's been a grind, it's been a lot of ups and downs over the last couple of years, obviously but the thing I'm most looking forward to is today's practice", he said. "But I think I can do it". And until you get them into the game and [they] take some hits and they have to plant and make sharp turns and all of those kinds of things, you don't know if they're really back.
