By messing with Tom Brady’s rhythm and neutralizing his favorite receiver, Welker. Impossible? Not at all. To reiterate, after the Patriots took a 21-0 lead, Brady completed only two of six passes over the rest of the first half, then started 1-for-7 in the third quarter before finding Stallworth for the long touchdown. As for Welker, he had back-to-back receptions for 15 and 12 yards preceding New England’s third touchdown, but the Texans shut him down cold over the final 411/2 minutes.
