On Sunday afternoon, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots host rookie quarterback Deshaun Watson and the Houston Texans. Both teams are 1-1 after bouncing back from disappointing games to open their season. Now they'll go head-to-head in Houston with one team emerging above .500 and the other sitting below that even level. Here's the latest Houston Texans vs. New England Patriots preview with the point spread, over/under, game time, TV channel and live stream feed details.

NFL game preview

In Week 1, the New England Patriots found themselves upset by the visiting Kansas City Chiefs 42-27 after Alex Smith and company erupted for a huge fourth quarter with 21 points.

The Pats bounced back last week by defeating Drew Brees and New Orleans, 36-20, though. Brady had whopping 447 yards and three touchdowns on 30-for-39 passing. There's good news heading into today's game too. It appears that both Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski are expecting to play for the Patriots, which probably doesn't bode well for the visitors.

The Houston Texans don't feature a veteran quarterback like Brady but have shown early trust in their rookie QB Deshaun Watson. The former Clemson QB led his team to victory in Week 2 with a 27-for-47 passing game that included a touchdown and total 227 yards. On Sunday he has a chance to become the first rookie QB to go into Gillette Stadium and win against Bill Belichick's Patriots.

Rookie QBs are 0-for-8 with a 50.7 passer rating against the Pats teams coached by Belichick at the Pats' home stadium.

It's no surprise that the New England Patriots are strong favorites at home today. Odds Shark has the point spread at -14 points in their favor, with the money line as high as -1200 at least one sportsbook.

The Houston Texans are +725 underdogs at one sportsbook, while the over/under points total for this game is 45 points.
