The Patriots defense couldn’t have gotten off to a worse start Sunday against the Texans.
New England’s defense allowed Davis Mills and an objectively poor Houston offense to chew up over 10 minutes on an 18-play, 79-yard drive that resulted in an 11-yard touchdown reception by Antony Auclair. The Patriots allowed Houston to convert three of four third-down tries, and also surrendered a fourth-down conversion.
Here’s the score from Auclair:
Ka’imi Fairbairn wound up missing the extra-point chance, so it wasn’t all good for the Texans.
The Patriots responded with a touchdown drive of their own, with Damien Harris punching it in at the goal line. New England kicker Nick Folk, too, missed his extra-point try.
