Sunday was no masterpiece from the Patriots, but New England found a way to pull off a potentially season-saving victory.
Bill Belichick’s team came out flat against the Houston Texans, allowing rookie third-rounder Davis Mills to throw all over them in the first half at NRG Stadium. But New England, led by a bloodied Mac Jones and a refocussed defense, made the necessary plays to earn a win.
Emotions throughout the roller-coaster afternoon were captured in a “sights & sounds” video shared by the Patriots on Tuesday evening.

In a separate video, the Patriots offered a look at the team’s postgame locker room celebration, during which Matthew Slater addressed Jones directly.
