I know that Savage isn't everyone's cup of tea. And of course, no Duane Brown.

He was on the field for 15 of the Patriots' first 17 plays and was not targeted.

Houston struck first as Savage connected with Jaelen Strong on a 2-yard touchdown. Prior to Saturday's game against the New England Patriots, fans pondered the exact question. This time, the Patriots will be playing a Week 2 preseason matchup against the Houston Texans, which is not exactly the same as the Super Bowl they won in that stadium six months ago. The Texans will take that bright spot, knowing that how he thrived is eminently replicable when the games start counting. The clock is ticking towards the regular season, so who will it be?

That guy could start: Burkhead, who spent the first four years of his career as a backup in Cincinnati, looked like a nice fit in the Patriots offense as a dual threat. But as not to jinx them I'd say that they have a ways to go before Opening Day. Those two qualities add up for a lot of excitement when he's on the field. The Patriots didn't come out of Saturday night unscathed, as second-year linebacker Elandon Roberts was carted to the locker room in the third quarter. Overthrows. Passes behind receivers. Foreman recorded 73 yards on Houston's first scoring drive of the third quarter, which included the 63-yard catch-and-run to give the Texans possession at the Patriots two-yard line. On third-and-3 in his first series of the game, he recognized White was isolated against safety Eddie Pleasant in the left flat and quickly dumped off the ball.

I'm not sure what the wear and tear of a season will do to his back, but J.J. Watt - at least right now - is COMPLETELY FINE.

Given new life, Brady took the Patriots to the tying touchdown. He played well and had a few good completions but he also had some mistakes. He'll have to work on the drops, though. They just need to keep their mentality on "win one and on to the next..." Fleming did get bull-rushed badly on Brady's 22-yard touchdown strike over the middle to Burkhead. Alfred Blue (5 for 20) is MUCH more confident when he has the ball in his hands, and he shows it. On the next play, Foreman ran it in to put the Texans back up, 27-23.
