The primary stars for the New England Patriots in their Week 14 victory over the Houston Texans.

After back-to-back losses, and an increasingly alarming injury report, things have not been looking great for the New England Patriots. However, they stepped up and took care of business on Sunday night, coming away with an impressive 27-6 victory over the Houston Texans.

With the win over Houston in the bag, New England now sits atop the AFC standing with a record of 11-2. With Bill Belichick and Tom Brady leading the way, the road to the Super Bowl in the AFC will likely continue to go through New England this season. They hit a bump in the road the past couple of week, as the injuries became too numerous to overcome, but the Patriots appear to have gotten back on track.

It was a true team effort for the Patriots on Sunday night, with players stepping up all over the field on both sides of the ball. The Texans are a talented team with superstar players on both sides of the ball. Belichick and his staff implemented a strong game plan to takeaway the Texans’ premier players, and the Patriots’ players executed it with near perfection.

This was a strong effort team-wide, but as always there are players who stand out. Which Patriots’ players stepped up and made the biggest impact on against the Texans on Sunday night?
