If there were one expert whose pick gave fans confidence the Texans might pull it off, it would be Andrew Brandt, who took Houston. The rest of the MMQB staff liked the Patriots.

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

Bill Bender from Sporting News picked the Patriots to beat the Texans 23-19.

Don't look now, but the Patriots have won back-to-back games and could make a second-half AFC playoff push. Cam Newton hasn't thrown an interception in three games, and if that trend continues New England will stay in the hunt.

If Houston falls to 2-8, it is safe to say their season is over.
