Patriots beat Texans 34-16
The Texans made it a competitive game early by turning 2 early Patriot turnovers into 10 points. The Texans made it 7-3, but a kickoff return made it 14-3 Patriots.
However, an interception deep inside Patriots territory resulted in a Texans a field goal, and the following kickoff fumble by Dion Lewis gave them an easy touchdown.
Dion Lewis made up for that mistake by finishing with 3 touchdowns on the night. The Texans defense kept them in the game in the second half, but their offense simply couldn’t move the ball.
Osweiler made a perfect throw deep into the end zone that would’ve given the Texans a fighting chance late but Fuller dropped it. The Patriots will now host the Winner of Pittsburgh vs Kansas City.
