Transcript - will not be 100% accurate

The patriots and Houston Texans last got together on December 10 as we told you it was say. Pretty one sided victory for New England 42 to fourteen let me give -- a couple of quick numbers here not to get buried in -- but just as a point of comparison. -- job quarterback for the Houston Texans in that game went nineteen for 32. 232 yards no touchdowns and interception was sacked twice at a quarterback rating of 68 point eight. Tom Brady in that same game went 21 for 35. 296. Yards. Four touchdowns. No interceptions. Was sacked once a quarterback rating of 125. Point four. There are a lot of folks. Around the National Football League. What have about as much -- in match job as they do and Andy Dalton and I might be one of them by the way. Because match -- just has never seemed to step to the plate in the big moment. You guys agree with -- -- I think that -- job. Hasn't and I was still amazed by this thing go American Washington mr. those first playoff game. There's an -- I just don't know if he said the opportunity I don't know I don't know if he's he's. -- I think last year the rise of the Texans coincided -- wasn't you know. The reason by the resident Texans but that the of the rise of one of the reasons that. You know. Well that that the Texans meet the post season with a back report. In in the -- was not there he was injured in -- just don't think that he's had this same opportunities. For you know if you if you look across the board for a you know a couple of corroborate your Rogers to you don't have to be on their post season stage all that much. Well I also think that. You know he's a very specific kind of player and I think we we often try to gravitate toward -- either either -- or is awesome and I think he's different Kepler equities group quarterback. But I we mentioned last time probably got down 21 often and then all of sudden now you're in eleven personnel for the rest a game your point spread this on his game. I think he's really good at. It plain and making the right read in the -- three men progression I mean it's. -- -- play action now I know I've got one of two looks on the field not dropping straight back with your crucial were sort of parallel line of scrimmage or read in the with the field as a different kind of quarterbacks are only. Half a dozen of those in the NFL there's a lot of guys. Like shop that are and that sort of like six took you know 2.5 range that are ruling the quarterbacks are going quarterbacks but to do one. It's you know they need the specific system to give them what to do. I think they got so four out of what they do when there were down 21 nothing he had to be Tom Brady -- -- not that so. I would think you should freedom should great among that curve that you know where his QB hurt -- fall in relation with army because. They do different things I think when he has that that parcel play action has really good run game in front of them. He does pick people park when he mixer decision that you remember for all of you call the ministers and -- -- had to pick. Against him out in the flat where. It was that -- to just telegraphed yeah well and then that's that's the two man game I'm talking about that plays a pretty good example because all three parts of the route -- left the center so. He's taking part -- action taken of alternative to the back. And he's getting fullback in the flag he's in -- -- him behind in some sort of crossing things over top there's nothing going on right back of he has an overloaded on that side -- good quarterback decision -- point is our topic it was nothing to do with -- here. Was also -- -- stat yesterday to -- he'd he'd run for he'd he had not yet run for first round was on the quarterback communal. But Zetterberg who are doing what executives and if -- -- -- -- issues are but the point is in that situation that's a talk and Dockery that's -- current stance kind of situations provided he stays to sort of tempo. I talked about this in the first game when we get the red zone he was always a really really good guy of one read on the field under Johnson's -- -- when we hit the -- red zone area goes to check him. When he goes to check down hits Forsett Matt's situation it's it's Foster in space the -- good. We discipline with you know this is what the -- is it's not this is where I don't egos are judiciously he's really good at it. When he gets outside his moment in those -- with the coverage says. He's not. He's not I'm gonna defend him right now in the habit of former player always play against the for a few years now. And the Houston Texans they have been on the rise for awhile now for about 34 years now we get to the top of them -- here -- well today. Did it -- that they're not gaining about not admit to deploy a few years in a row. Com slash address the reason why upstairs because of last year when he got hurt you know you TJ -- -- -- team yes he did but the team was being built before TD garden before he took over last year. Bomb goes for my four Iraqis -- do that it was -- first playoff game yesterday. But a lot of things have to go with his help -- bill and that there was given him no help in if you listen to commentators and gain yesterday. And you you you just under a year that Matt -- is not shotgun quarterback like you said. Earlier in the season before he went into it before he got to December. There -- only in the shotgun may be 25%. Of the time 30% of time. And in and in him what December by getting behind the have been forced to go to your sentinel formation which he is not the best being he's probably not. The greatest pain in the -- 75% determined in what December compared to two -- for some time. That's his -- -- soon and I guarantee you last night yesterday of US day game in earnest -- howdy won a game -- -- Foster touched the ball forty times. Forty times he touched the ball a combination of thirty running maybe ten receiving. -- the Houston Texans off. It's important understand too when they have to go into those sets they're not built from a from the -- have your -- or from the way the rosters built to be able to do it because. Keep -- Marten is or older guy he sort of that are kick returner that gadget play -- shall -- some scissors down fields off but -- were vs things like that. But all the other guys are tight ends. I mean it's it's it's Garrett whenever we mention his name prior Casey who's the full black guy who's going to be eleven. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Sold their. Big do what they do because that's how but I think the team in the roster was built. Well take quick break when we come back we'll look at the other games that are going on today in the National Football League as well as we continue to. At a dance our way through the wildcard weekend in the NFL wild -- weekend so much fun when you've got to buy. I mean I guess they cannot afford games the elderly care in make fun of GO way have I mean you just it's just fun all the way around.
