The New England Patriots' rushing attack against the Texans' run defense was, on paper at least, one factor which made the visitors a two-point favorite entering Sunday at NRG Stadium in Houston.
And while the two still played a role, it just wasn't the way many expected. The Texans limited the Patriots to just 86 rushing yards on 24 carries in Houston's 27-20 victory at NRG Stadium. It both the second fewest recorded for New England, and the second fewest allowed by Houston this season.
Houston defensive end J.J. Watt, for one, was thrilled with how the group performed.

Bill Belichick wouldn't come out and reveal the extent of Rex Burkhead's knee injury Sunday but the reaction from the New England Patriots running back's teammates spoke volumes.
If Burkhead, who took a hard shot to his knee and had to be carted to the locker room in the third quarter of the Patriots' 27-20 loss to the Houston Texans, isn't out for the rest of the 2020 NFL season then he'll likely be missing in action for a while.
“I talked to him and - so we'll wait and get medical confirmation,” Belichick said. “But obviously, it's a knee injury.”

Sign In
For the fourth time in 10 games this season, the New England Patriots found themselves driving late in the fourth quarter Sunday, needing a touchdown to tie or take the lead.
For the fourth time, they came up short.
This latest ill-fated comeback bid ended with quarterback Cam Newton being overrun by Houston pass rushers on fourth-and-4 from the Texans' 28-yard line with 71 seconds remaining.
Newton evaded one rusher, then another, but couldn't escape the grasp of blitzing safety Justin Reid, who pulled the Patriots QB to the turf as his desperation pass fell harmlessly incomplete...
