In the installment of his "Tom vs".

The reason is that on the other side of the field will be the New England Patriots, five-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady and his future Hall of Fame head coach Bill Belichick.

"Yeah. I mean, I'm a pretty mentally tough guy, so I've dealt with a lot of circumstances over a long period of time - 18, 19 years", Brady said. "I love being out there and the preparation, what it takes to be a great player, those things are still very enjoyable for me and there's no place I'd rather be Sunday afternoon than 1 o'clock playing here and playing well".

"It's definitely an honor to be elected by my teammates and to be a captain of the team", White told NESN on Friday. "He has a great football-playing mentality, very competitive, plays well, has played against a lot of good players, plays against good players every week and competes hard every week". "I'm not sure what life would be like without it".

"An early victory against New England would show the league that this Texans team not only can compete for a playoff spot, but it can be among the best in the AFC". They're really well coached.

Seeing a healthy Texans team back on the field should make a difference in this game for Houston, and if they can stay healthy, this team should be on the fast track for some success in 2018. "That's where our focus is".

The Houston Texans now have the 10th-best odds to win Super Bowl 53.

"I think the last eight years of my career have been better than the first 10, so I should just prolong it and that's what I'm trying to do", Brady said.

'I think people are just looking for something to write and talk about. But yeah, that was a long time ago. He was at the stadium nearly every day, watching film and talking to coaches and players to try and get better.

This season, Brady is once again expected to be one of the top quarterbacks in fantasy, as many had him ranked second behind Aaron Rodgers.

"I don't want to bring on any drama this year", Brady said, two days before he will lead the team against the Houston Texans in the season opener.

"From the time that he arrived here ... he had really good poise, very smart guy", O'Brien said. "Right now we just have to focus on today and be able to prepare and once Sunday gets here we'll be able to cut it loose and play free". I'm talking about the down and dirty, hard-hitting, need-to-know-basis questions that beat reporters can't even get answers to. You worked really hard to get to this point. "Rodney was a good blitzer", Belichick said. "Phillip (Dorsett) and Chris (Hogan) obviously I played a lot with them past year, Cordarrelle (Patterson) is new and he's done some good things, obviously, the reason why he's here".

They weren't just filling in.

Offensive tackle Marcus Cannon (calf) and safety Nate Ebner (knee) were full participants. Rex Burkhead was not on the first practice participation report of the season.

Both Andrews and tight end Rob Gronkowski echoed the same sentiment noting that the Texans have multiple pass rushers that cause problems, and you can't just pick out one.
