Battered Patriots keep winning, Texans bemoan late collapse

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) The New England Patriots walked off the field following their 36-33 win over the Houston Texans on Sunday feeling fortunate.

Injuries have dogged the Patriots for each of the past two weeks. A crafty game plan helped them get past New Orleans in Week 2. This time, they needed a late push from their 40-year-old quarterback against a feisty Texans team that had several opportunities to win the game.

This much is clear: They can't keep going like this.
