But at the moment, it's a short-term focus for him with the season opener in mind.

Although Brady discusses the hardships of preparing for each season and his decision to spend more time with his family this offseason, he also makes clear his intentions of continuing.

Houston has not beaten the Patriots since the regular-season finale in 2009 (0-7 since) and has never won at Gillette Stadium. "They're a great team".

It will be hard for the Texans to challenge Gronkowski this Sunday, but if they want a chance to win this game and to start off the season with a win, keeping Gronkowski will be a task they must face head-on - but that is easier said than done. "A lot of people are watching".

"I think that's the biggest thing ... just not letting those guys get comfortable inside the pocket", Hightower said.

Texans defensive end J.J. He knows that his back problems combined with last season's injury to his leg had some people doubting he can ever be dominant again. The Texans begin the season with a healthy trio of Watt, Mercilus and Jadeveon Clowney.
