Week 3 begins with Jacoby Brissett at quarterback for New England.

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots are in familiar territory of being 2-0. They are however, not used to playing games with their third-string quarterback. After Jimmy Garoppolo's injury, Jacoby Brissett will be under center for the Patriots as they tackle the Houston Texans on Thursday night. Rob Gronkowski expects to play his season debut tonight which certainly would be a big help for the inexperienced quarterback. Because of the new quarterback, the Patriots find themselves in the rare position of being underdogs in Gillette Stadium.

The Texans also stand pretty at 2-0 on the strength of their elite defense. However, they do have offensive potential with DeAndre Hopkins and rookie sensation Will Fuller. A win over the Patriots would put the Texans sitting nicely in their division which already has two 0-2 teams.
