There’s nothing the Houston Texans would love more than to hand Coach Bill Belichick, 64 and his New England Patriots their first loss of the 2016 NFL season. The men from the Lone Star State are heading north, facing the Pats on their home turf for the Sept. 22 edition of Thursday Night Football. Will Gillete Stadium in Foxborough, Mass turn into a deadly showdown? The game starts at 8:25 PM ET so be ready to watch!

Though their star quarterback, Tom Brady, 39, is busy serving his “Deflate-gate” suspension, the Patriots have managed to cobble together an impressive start to the season. Sadly, that might come crashing down. Jimmy Garoppolo, 24, sprained his AC joint during the Week 2 game against the Miami Dolphins and can’t lift his right arm, per the New York Post.
Third-string Jacoby Brissett, 23, stepped in to finish the game. Jacoby’s expected to start, though there are reports that people in the Pats organization are pressuring Jimmy to play, supposedly telling him that Tom Brady played through a similar injury. Yikes. Maybe if they put the #FakeBrady mask on Jacoby, the Pats will feel better with letting Jimmy rest?
The Texans’ quarterback Brock Osweiler, 25, (aka the guy who was supposed to take over for the retiring Peyton Manning, 40) is also facing a challenge, as he sees playing on a Thursday as a completely different beast. “You’re not really going to have any physical reps during the week,” he told ESPN. “You’re really not going to practice, you’re just going to have a bunch of walkthroughs.”
A lack of prep time could be Houston’s downfall. Though they beat the Chicago Bears and Kansas City Chiefs, even a Brady-less Patriots squad is going to be quite the challenge. They might be heading back to Texas with a 2-1 record, even after they’re denied a chance to wear their snazzy Color Rush uniforms. Rude.
Who do you think will win this Thursday Night Football game, HollywoodLifers? Are you pulling for the Patriots or do you want to see the Texans triumph?
