HOUSTON, TX - DECEMBER 13: The Houston Texans hosted the New England Patriots at NRG Stadium on December 13, 2015 in Houston, Texas. Texans defensive end J.J. Watt was slowed with a broken hand sustained in practice and also faced double and triple teams all night. On the other hand, the Patriots defense collected six sacks on Texans QB Brian Hoyer, who left the game with concussion like symptoms in the fourth quarter. New England won the game 27-6 as they clinched a playoff berth, while the Texans ended the night with a 6-7 record going into a crucial division matchup with Indianapolis next week.
