AFC Divisional Highlights: Patriots 41 – Texans 28


FOXBORO, MA – Tom Brady threw for 344 yards and three touchdowns as the New England Patriots beat the Houston Texans 41-28 to set up an AFC Championship Game rematch with the Baltimore Ravens.

On Sunday, the high-powered New England offense was nearly unstoppable, racking up 457 yards in racing to a 38-13 lead before holding on as Houston tried to become the latest team to rally on Divisional Weekend. Shane Vereen scored three touchdowns for the Patriots.

When Baltimore and New England met for a spot in the Super Bowl last year, Brady and the Patriots triumphed 23-20 at Gillette Stadium in a game that saw Billy Cundiff miss a game-tying field goal with 11 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter.

Ian Eagle and Trent Green called today’s action on Westwood One Sports.
