Last-minute drive propels Patriots to 36-33 win over Houston

The Patriots will honor 2017 Patriots Hall of Fame inductee Raymond Clayborn at halftime of the game against the Texans at Gillette Stadium.

On Houston's end, its defense will be without starting corner Kevin Johnson and running back Alfred Blue as well as guard Jeff Allen, receiver Will Fuller, receiver Andy Jones, guard Jah Reid and defensive end Carlos Watkins.

Watson completed 22-of-33 for 301 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions, one of which came on the final Hail Mary play to end the game.

New England Patriots have been pretty banged up this season, as they have already lost Julian Edelman for the entire season and Malcolm Mitchell who will not be able to play at least until week 9. So far this season, the Patriots have had much difficulty stopping long passes and long plays.

The New England Patriots will be perhaps the most closely watched team during Sunday's pre-game formalities.

Houston's offense converted the short field into points. And there's little doubt that Deshaun Watson will see things on Sunday that never occurred to him.

Trump, Kim are like 'children in a kindergarten': Russia
The depth is poorly constrained and has been held to 5 km by the seismologist", USGS said in a statement . Responding to the speech, Kim said Trump's comments amounted to an insult, reports CNN .

Watson also distributed the ball well in the passing game for the first time.

Maybe they were swayed by the Patriots' near blow-out of New Orleans last week.

Tom Brady worked his magic again at Gillette Stadium on Sunday. Dont'a Hightower is the best player on Patriots' defense and one of the heroes of the last two #Super Bowl wins for the Patriots. "The week before, I looked at plays I could have made to help the team and put us in a better position to win, so from that aspect, yes, I am disappointed in myself". DeAndre Hopkins caught a team-high seven passes for 76 yards.

Watson had this success against a team that has dominated rookie quarterbacks at home.

"Texans players are caring, intelligent men who do so much good, as was shown in the past month when our city was devastated by Hurricane Harvey".
