State of the Texans:
Tom Brady and the New England Patriots hosted the Houston Texans at Gillette Stadium and routed the Texans. In what looked to be a great matchup turned into a slaughter in the first half of the game and the Texans never recovered. Now the question becomes how do the Texans recover from yet another thrashing by an elite quarterback?

QB Tom Brady
It’s tough to ever advise benching Brady in a fantasy league, but owners who have a top-rate backup with a better matchup could at least consider the possibility. The 49ers are tough against the pass, and this game doesn’t figure to be a points bonanza. Brady is probably still good for 280 and 2 scores, but that is not an automatic start for most teams who are...

How much does he respect this defense? Enough to start studying up on them back on Thanksgiving. Tom Brady went on and on yesterday about the 49ers defense, which of course, he does about every team every week. However, he doesn't often say stuff like "There’s no real weakness on this defense" multiple times very often. I remember listening to a BS Report with Bill...

Tom Brady improved to 26-11 in his career against teams with a better record than his with his win over the Texans last week. That’s unreal. The Patriots are +198 on the season. The 49ers are closest at +132. They already have wins over the Texans and Broncos and if they...
