From the Texans locker room: Patriots

On playing the Patriots…
“It’s a big challenge. I mean, it’s a big challenge to go up against a team that’s so well coached and has a lot of really good players, a great quarterback. It’s a big challenge for us. We practiced today, looked like we had a decent practice. But we’re going to have to keep improving every day to be able to go out there and have a good game on Sunday night.”
– Texans Head Coach Bill O’Brien

vince wilfork“They are such a good football team and I had the luxury to be there for 11 years and over my time we lost some games and everything, but that team is always going to be ready to play. It is all about execution and I tried to tell our guys all of the time that preparation is everything for us and this week is no different than any other week. We try to prepare the best way that we can and, hopefully, on gameday, be able to execute on a high level. It’s going to be the same thing this week. We are not looking at any records, we are looking strictly off of what we see on film, how explosive this team is, how well they play on defense, you name it, you see a good football team and it’s just a consistent football team over the course of the years that they always play good football. Especially at this time of the year, they always play good football. We really don’t look at the losses from these guys because we know how good they are and we have to stay focused on that.”
Texans Nose Tackle Vince Wilfork

“It’s exciting man, primetime Sunday night, at home against one of the better teams in the league. Can’t really ask for much more, you get up for those kind of games, so I’m looking forward to it.”
Texans Tackle Duane Brown

“They’re very well rounded. In many different categories they’re good. They’re going to be able to pass the ball and they’re going to be able to run the ball. That’s what they do. The passing game obviously helps set up the running game. They have great players. They have great coaches. So, we look forward to a very good challenge on Sunday night. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”
Texans Defensive End J.J. Watt
