The Houston Texans once again made their match up against the New England Patriots their “homecoming” game and it looks like they are showing up big. The roof is open at Reliant Stadium and the stars are aligning for the struggling Texans, as Houston has been able to jump out to an early 10-0 lead.

Texans running back Ben Tate gave the team the early lead with a touchdown run before leaving the game with an injury, after the team was able to capitalize on a Tom Brady interception.

Of course, the Texans fans need to be careful that they aren’t too excited yet.

It was just a week ago that the Patriots were down early to the Denver Broncos with a deficit that appeared to be insurmountable, but Tom Brady and company were able to regroup at the half and come storming back for an overtime win.

Houston needs to keep the pressure on if they want to pull off the upset or they will just watch a great opportunity slide through their finger tips.
