So when Belichick talks defense, people tend to listen intently. So when he was asked about J.J. Watt, the outstanding defensive end for the Houston Texans who Tom Brady and company will be keeping an eye out in their Monday night showdown, Belichick let his feelings be known.
“He looks like the defensive player of the year to me,” Belichick said of Watt, via CSNHouston.com. “He’s been so productive and so disruptive. It’s not just the pass rush.
It’s the batted balls, it’s the tackles for loss, the blocking that he draws, it helps everybody else out. He’s been a terrific player for them in a lot of different ways.”
“He’s the most disruptive player in the league,” Belichick said. “He’s really pretty good at everything. He’s got great quickness

Secondary coach Vance Joseph said his veteran corner looked great today and added that he didnt see any reason why Joseph wouldnt be able to go Monday night. Joseph has missed...
Earlier this season, there were fantasy football reports across the major sites that included a rather depressing update about Houston Texans receiver Andre Johnson. I don’t remember which NFL reporter was involved, but these reports basically read something like, “Andre Johnson’s knees are done and he’s a shell of his former self” and yadda yadda. And it doesn’t matter...

James Harden attended the grand opening of the upscale driving range (complete with a bar and restaurant), Top Golf Houston, earlier this week alongside Houston Texans’ T.J. Yates and Brooks Reed:
The Patriots opened as 3.5-point favorites as they prepare to host the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football in Week 14.
An 11-1 team being labeled a significant underdog this late in the season is about as common as Antonio Cromartie using any form of birth control, so this spread deserves a careful eye. How can a 9-3 New England team with well-documented problems on defense...
