D'Onta Foreman steals the show in Texans win over Patriots

Good Tune-Up For Brady & Co. On third-and-3 in his first series of the game, he recognized White was isolated against safety Eddie Pleasant in the left flat and quickly dumped off the ball. That might have factored into the Patriots' thinking in the not having Trey Flowers play on Saturday night. This was the first time we've seen some of the Patriots' newest pieces in action - like Brandin Cooks and Rex Burkhead.

Gronkowski, who missed the last five games of the 2016 season and the entire postseason run due to back surgery, saw the field on the first three drives, all with Tom Brady at quarterback.

Last week in his National Football League preseason debut, Foreman used the combination of elusiveness and speed to pick up 41 yards on one play. On Saturday he made just one tackle, but it went for a loss as he pushed through the line to stuff the run.

Everyone knew about Cyrus Jones a year ago. A Ka'imi Fairbairn field goal on the Texans' next drive made it 20-16. There was one kick that Jones should have let go, but more importantly he didn't fumble any of the kicks he fielded.

The defense showed it still can't cover New England running backs on pass routes. But his accuracy was a major problem Saturday night. Two plays later, Deshaun Watson scored on a two-yard touchdown run.

It was UGLY and it was his final play of the night.

"It's just a dance everyone [does], just joking around when you're hanging out", Watson said. The man drafted between Watson and Foreman, linebacker Zach Cunningham, had a very rough night.

Playing in front of family and friends, D'Onta Foreman had a memorable home debut for the Houston Texans. "I've said for a long time, I throw where the guys are open". We'll have to take his word for it, but it was bad throw either way.

Garoppolo went 15-for-23 for 145 yards.

As fans will remind each other, "it's only preseason". He walked off under his own power but was later taken to the locker room on a cart, and was clearly in a significant amount of pain. Another defensive end, Geneo Grissom, didn't suit up, as he appeared to be testing out an undisclosed injury before the game.
