Texans coach Gary Kubiak's biggest concern as his team prepares for a divisional playoff game at New England is winning the turnover battle.
The Patriots lead the NFL in turnover differential this season at plus-25. The Texans have done well in that area this year and were seventh in the league with a plus-12 margin.
But in the first meeting with New England, Matt Schaub threw an interception on Houston's second drive, contributing to an early 14-0 hole in a 42-14 win by the Patriots.
Kubiak says, ''They get them. They don't give it up. If we go in there and do anything to help them we're in trouble.''

Just in case the Houston Texans needed any more fuel for this weekend's upcoming AFC Divisional playoff game, Boston sports writer Dan Shaughnessy provided them with some.
Houston Texans running back Arian Foster recently changed his Twitter avatar to this quote taken from a Shaughnessy article written on Sunday bashing the Texans after their Wild Card win over the Bengals...
When J.J. Watt takes to the field, he only has one thing on his mind. Winning, Watt is a rare player that only comes along once in a life time. In this life-time the Houston Texans have a player that can make things happen. Watt is almost unstoppable. The guy is all over the line of scrimmage and when he comes after the opposing teams quarterback, there aren’t too many offensive...
The above is what Texans running back Arian Foster is now using for his Twitter avatar. It is a cut and paste job from the article Dan Shaughnessy of the Boston Globe wrote yesterday in advance of next weekend's AFC playoff game between the Patriots and Texans. Shaughnessy is known for two things: being a troll while offending pretty much everyone, and making grandiose and hyperbolic...

Do you see random sh$% while driving to work and think it needs to be seen by the masses? Does the guy who sits next to you at work look like a tool on a daily basis? Does your dog lick his balls in an odd fashion? Is your neighbor working on some sort of outer space vehicle behind his shed? We want your WTF photos.

The L.A. Lakers continue to disappoint fans, as they have lost 4 in a row for the second time this season. Fan frustrations are showing in every form of social media these days, as shown by a picture tweeted today by Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson, who tweeted a photo of teammate Arian Foster as [...]
Many NFL pundits aren’t giving the Texans much of a chance in their return trip to New England this weekend, not after stumbling to a 42-14 loss less than a month ago. Texans running back Arian Foster is soaking in all the doubt, though, and using it as motivation for his rematch with the Patriots.
Foster, who is very active on social media, changed his Twitter avatar to a photo...
THE GOOD: Houston's OffenseThe Texans scored just one touchdown in Saturday's game, but scored on five different possessions. That tells us that Houston moved the ball consistently all day, and stuck to its game plan: giving the ball to #23. Arian Foster ran for 140 yards on 32 carries, and scored the only offensive touchdown in the game. He also added eight grabs for...
After beating the Bengals 19-13 to open wildcard weekend for the second straight year, the Houston Texans (13-4) head into the divisional round as pretty heavy underdogs to the New England Patriots (12-4).
Though head coach Bill Belichick is inevitably sending a message that the 42-14 win in Week 14 means nothing now, Dan Shaughnessy has a different outlook in his column in the...
New England Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork has seen it all, and his ability to diagnose opponents' strengths and tendencies is evidenced by the on-field instinct he displays.With the Houston Texans coming to town Sunday for a Divisional Round bout, Wilfork is preparing to defend the cut block. "That’s something that they do very, very well," Wilfork told...
After a bye week off, the Patriots now know who their divisional round opponent is — and they should seem pretty familiar.
It wasn’t all that lone ago (just under a month, in fact) that the Houston Texans traveled to Gillette Stadium for what was billed as a heavyweight matchup between two Super Bowl contenders. The end result didn’t nearly match the hype, as Tom Brady and...
On Sunday, the Patriots will take on the Houston Texans in the AFC divisional round. As we all know, the Patriots manhandled the Texans in week 14 by a score of 42-14 and seemed to be primed for another run deep into the postseason. While the Pats are 9.5 point favorites at the moment, don’t expect this week to be another walk in the park.
The Texans are coming off of an...
Growing up in San Antonio, I have been more-or-less conditioned into being a Cowboys fan. It wasn’t something I chose per say, it was something that was bestowed upon me. As great as that has been at times, recently I have found myself in situations like the one I faced the other day when a friend asked:“Why are you a Cowboys fan? The Texans are better and Houston is closer to...
The Patriots opened as 9.5-point favorites as they host the Houston Texans in the Divisional Round of the AFC playoffs.
Let’s get past the obvious – the Pats made the Texans look like a JV squad a few weeks ago. That game happened. It’s over. The Pats don’t start out with a four-TD lead just because they won by that margin a month ago. And just because they stomped...
