Monday Night Football rolls into Foxborough for the premier matchup of Week 14 in the NFL, as the New England Patriots are under the national spotlight as they take on the Houston Texans.
NFL: Houston Texans vs. New England Patriots, 8:20 p.m., ESPN: The two favorites to make the AFC Championship game meet on a December evening in New England. These are the top two offenses in the league, with Tom Brady's Pats averaging a ridiculous 35.8 points on over 400 yards per game, while Arian Foster and the Texans are second in scoring with 29.3. However, Houston brings a defense New England doesn't have, as they're also No. 4 in scoring defense, whereas the Patriots are very middle-of-the-pack on that side of the ball. Its one of the better matchups of the season thus far, and if that wasn't enough, a million fantasy football playoff berths hang in the balance as two high-powered offenses meet in the final matchup of most league's regular seasons.
