  • The Houston Texans Defense was last in the matchup in scoring, finishing below their projection for the sixth time this season with 2.00 points against a projected 5.84.

  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, the New England Patriots Defense scored 6.00 points against a projected 9.60 and has now underachieved in five straight games.
