Texans vs. Patriots: Game time, TV schedule, injury updates and more

Mike Ehrmann

The Patriots will try to hand Houston its second loss on Monday night.

The New England Patriots host the Houston Texans in Week 14 in a battle of AFC Super Bowl contenders. Both teams come into the game on six-game winning streaks and the outcome could go a long way in deciding home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. The Pats are 9-3 and two games behind the 11-1 Texans with four to play.

New England survived a tough test on the road at Miami in Week 13, escaping with a 23-16 win. The Patriots offense struggled to get going, as Tom Brady could only amass 238 yards through the air with one touchdown and an interception. New England is still missing tight end Rob Gronkowski, who did not practice this week and is still recovering from a broken forearm.

Houston also survived a fight from a divisional opponent, taking down the Tennessee Titans in Nashville, 24-10. The Texans were outgained, but were fortunate to receive three interceptions from Titans quarterback Jake Locker. Houston is hoping to have a healthy Shaun Cody in the middle of the defensive line against the Pats. The tackle was limited in practice all week with rib and back injuries.

Game time, TV schedule: Monday, Dec. 10, 8:30 p.m. ET, ESPN
