Texans again riding their defense to keep it close against Patriots

It had been a pretty good night, by all accounts.

The Texans scored 16 points, 13 of which came off of uncharacteristic turnovers.

"I did OK. There are some things I could do a lot better on", he said, "protect the ball".

"We haven't written a crumb compared to where that game will be on the weekend", Avello said.

Going into this season, the Atlanta Falcons were just looking to break even at.500. "I think this team did a great job playing against us". As a matter of fact, Lewis was the only real threat against the Texans for most of the game, as he also ran for a touchdown in the fourth quarter and returned a kick for a touchdown in the first quarter.

The Texans effectively kept the ball away from New England in the first half. He should be No. 3 by the time the Super Bowl is over (12 behind Hines Ward and Wes Welker).

Asked what he will think about most when he lays his head on the pillow after the game, Lewis didn't hesitate, saying: "The fumble for sure". This time, Patriots guard Joe Thuney was able to fall on it to maintain possession. "It's just a testament, it's very rarely done, and I'm just excited to be a part of something like this because there's not too many places that win like this". "They have a good defense..." I'm supposed to do stuff like that. "I can't let my teammates down that way". Unfortunately, he also threw for one more interception than TDs on the season, but has shown he's got the ability to put in a solid performance when needed. Just about every Super Bowl champion has to overcome one sluggish game on their path to the Lombardi Trophy, and the Patriots just got theirs out of the way. It sailed a tick high and next thing you know, it's intercepted, so that's my fault. "It's fixable, I know that. But I'm going to enjoy the win". Whitney Mercilus, Jadeveon Clowney and ex-Patriot Vince Wilfork will have their hands full with Brady and the rest of the Patriots offense.

Sometimes in the National Football League, it shakes out that even though your team was underwhelming during the regular season, your opponent in the first round of the playoffs comes to your stadium with a third-string quarterback who is making his professional debut.

One of the two victories that Denver picked up over New England last season came in a 30-24 overtime win that Osweiler started for the Broncos. "That's just the way I prepare, that's just the way I work".

Lewis, who'd scampered for a 98-yard kickoff return late in the first quarter, punched in his third touchdown of the night from the one-yard line less than a minute later before Stephen Gostkowski sealed it with a 43-yarder with 6:37 remaining. He received good blocks from Matthew Slater and Geneo Grissom to spring him for the touchdown. In fact, even if Brady were not playing, the Patriots would be favored by almost two touchdowns. While the Texans were 7-1 at home, they were not a great road team, losing six of their eight games outside of Houston.

While the Patriots running backs were the only skill players to score, Lewis wasn't the only running back to get an end zone trip.

"We have to play better, we have to coach better than we did (Saturday night), or there won't be much left in our season, " he said.

"Like I said, it starts with me".
