Historically speaking, that would be bad news for Houston, which has defeated New England just once since it became an expansion franchise in 2002.Much of that has to do with the dominance of Tom Brady, and while the Patriots QB has not been as great on paper this season as usual, he typically handles the Texans with ease. In his past five games against Houston, Brady has 1,548 passing yards, 16 TDs and 2 INTs for a 119.9 rating.Below is all the info you need to watch Patriots vs. Texans on Sunday night, including the TV channels and kickoff time.MORE: Full betting preview for Patriots vs. TexansWho plays on Sunday Night Football tonight?Matchup: New England Patriots at Houston TexansKickoff time: 8:20 p.m. ETIn both our Week 13 NFL picks against the spread and straight-up predictions, Sporting News is projecting a Patriots victory over the Texans. Below are the explanations.Pick against the spread: The Patriots are 10-1 against the Texans since the latter team entered the league in 2002. In four meetings since 2015, Bill Belichick’s team has beaten former New England offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien’s team five consecutive times with an average margin of victory of more than 15 points. Although the past two games have been closer because of Deshaun Watson, he has had issues with tougher defenses. Tom Brady has a much easier matchup against a reeling secondary, and with more trust in his remixed receivers, he’ll have a vintage game. Pick: Patriots win 31-20 and cover the spread.Straight-up prediction: In some seasons, a game like this might be an upset alert, as the Patriots typically suffer a few losses that make observers doubt whether they’re true Super Bowl contenders. Yet New England is 10-1 thanks to its league-best scoring defense, a unit that is capable of containing MVP-caliber quarterbacks not named Lamar Jackson. Deshaun Watson will make his share of plays as usual; just not enough of them.
