I'm sure a lot of teams have things like that.

'I think it's going to be very hard to do.

To compensate, the Patriots will lean on playing fundamental football and making in-game adjustments for things they didn't see on film. "I love being out there and the preparation, what it takes to be a great player". But I think I can do it.

"Right now he's been doing OK in practice, so he should be there", Crennel said. You want speed off the edge? "He's a great leader for us and there's no better example that you want to follow". "I feel like I have a lot of experience, a lot of knowledge and I plan to use it".

"At the point I'm at now, it's been fun getting back into a regular routine".

When asked about knowing where the Houston pass rushers are on the field, Gronkowski said, "it's super important, but I mean, they've got a lot of good pass rushers on this team". We're at a certain place now, but it's not where we want to be as we get through the season. "Right now we just have to focus on today and be able to prepare and once Sunday gets here we'll be able to cut it loose and play free". "I feel pretty confident in there and you're trying to avoid those the best way you can".

"I think the last eight years of my career have been better than the first 10", said Brady, who is in his 19th season with the Patriots, "so I should just prolong it".

'Or maybe I'm just caring more about things that really matter - like my family, like people's health, like life and death. "We're all going to be learning on the fly and you have to build as the season goes".

Wide receiver Keke Coutee, outside linebacker Duke Ejofor, wide receiver Will Fuller V and outside linebacker Whitney Mercilus were all limited with hamstring injuries.

"I have confidence in them, certainly", he said. "To be on this team, you have to be a good football player". A lot of the players on the Patriots offense played underneath O'Brien when he was there.

Brady refused comment on the airing of Colin Kaepernick's first Nike ad, saying, "I really want to focus on football. get ready for the Texans". The Texans gave them fits all four quarters but, the Patriots escaped with a 36-33 victory.
