Houston (CBS HOUSTON) – The Houston Texans will head into Foxborough, Massachusetts this Saturday as double-digit underdogs against the New England Patriots.
The Texans have actually never won a game in Foxborough and earlier this season they lost 27-0, against not Tom Brady, but the Patriots third-string quarterback Jacoby Brissett.
While it seems like it will take a miracle for the Texans to go on the road and beat the Patriots, Brady did not entire any thought of a potential let down this weekend.
“I view it as the biggest game that we’ve played all season against the best defense that we’ve played all season,” Brady said on a conference call Wednesday afternoon. “I don’t see any letdown from us, that’s ridiculous to think that, I’m preparing like this is the hardest game we’ve faced all season, which it will be.”
All the odds seem to be stacked up against the Texans, but it’s something that they are embracing.
“Love being the underdog, been the underdog all my life, being in this situation is nothing, different,” right tackle Chris Clark said. “Never count the underdog out.”
