Tom Brady throws five touchdowns, including game-winner in the final seconds

Like last January's game in the same stadium, when the Texans held Brady to the lowest completion percentage of his playoff career, Houston was able to make Brady uncomfortable in Sunday's early stages, disrupting the rhythm of the Patriots' passing game, and forced a near-abandonment of its rushing attack.

In return, a loud chorus of boos was heard sandwiching the singing of "The Star-Spangled Banner".

Since his comments, many National Football League players and teams have condemned the "polarizing" comment from Trump, including Patriots owner and friend of Trump, Robert Kraft.

The Texans had a chance to end the game when Corey Moore nearly picked off Brady two plays before he found Cooks on the edge of the end zone for the lead. He completed 12 of 16 passes for 123 yards with a touchdown and an interception. Watson, as a rookie, will have a tough time trying to keep up. While the offense looked good against Saints, they will be facing a much better defense in the Texans. He threw a pass off his back foot that was easily intercepted by Stephon Gilmore.

Rex Burkhead, who got the Patriots engine started in the win over New Orleans suffered a rib injury later into the game.

After strolling into the end zone, Clowney performed Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski's signature celebration, the "Gronk Spike".

A leaping last-minute touchdown catch by Brandin Cooks propelled the Patriots to a dramatic 36-33 win over the Texans Sunday. Hogan had a second touchdown later in the half - one again, left wide open by the Houston secondary - to give New England a 21-20 edge heading into the break. With Cannon (concussion/ankle) out, LaAdrian Waddle and Cameron Fleming will be very important in protecting Tom Brady.

But against Houston, Cooks broke created enough space deep along the left sideline for a 44-yard gain to set up the Patriots' first touchdown, then broke away from his defender on a crossing route for a 42-yard score in the third quarter.

The lesson here is one that continually needs to be told: Never count out Tom Brady or the Patriots.
