Game is tonight and still no word as to who the Pats will start at q.b., and according to the Hoodie, Bill Belichick, we may not get it until 90 minutes before game time.
The Patriots list Jimmy Garoppolo is listed as doubtful.
Now, let me give you my injury report: he’s not playing! He can barely lift his throwing arm. And you’re going to put the possible heir apparent to Tom Brady, or at least a guy you might trade for a high draft pick, in front of q.b. killa J.J. Watt?! Sure you’re not…
Which means, third stringer Jacoby Brissett will be making his first career start and doing it on a short week. Good luck with that.
So, almost everything is pointing against the Patriots tonight. Which is why they’re dogs at home, which is unheard of.
They haven’t lost a home, prime time game to an AFC team in 8 years!!… Then again, the haven’t asked a rookie third stringer, on a short week to win any of those either. That’s why their dogs… And because the Texans are nice. So, no, the Patriots have no business winning this game… which is why I’m going to take them!
Any other team, any other coach, and I’m going against them. But these are the Patriots and Belichick we’re talking about. And they have a history of winning games they have no business winning.
And according to profootballtalk, Gronk is tellng people close to him that he will play. Another reason to like the Pats. Everything says pick against, but it says here, they find a way to grind it out.
