Two early undefeated teams start off Week 3 in Foxboro, Massachusetts Thursday night as the Houston Texans (2-0) face the New England Patriots (2-0).

The Texans are coming off a home victory over the Kansas City Chiefs 19-12 and will look to go 3-0 since 2012. 

New England will be starting third string quarterback Jacoby Brissett in place of the injured Jimmy Garoppolo, who was in place for the suspended Tom Brady. 

The Patriots lead the season series over the Texans 6-1.
