Brock Osweiler begins preparation for Patriots

Brock Osweiler 
Despite a 2-0 start, Brock Osweiler knows what he wants to improve heading into Week 3.
"Without question and it starts with eliminating the turnovers," Osweiler said. "If I just protect the football with the way our defense is playing right now, with the way (Shane) Lechler's playing, the way our running game is going - good things are going to happen for this football team."
In the Texans 19-12 win over the Kansas City Chiefs, Osweiler completed 19-of-33 passes for 268 yards, one touchdown, and also two interceptions. Protecting the football will be the main point of emphasis for the starting quarterback in the short week leading up to the Thursday night game at New England. 
Last November, Osweiler led his first fourth-quarter comeback against the Patriots, rallying from a 14-point fourth quarter deficit. He was 23-of-42 for 270 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the win. Having faced and defeated the Patriots last season, Osweiler is confident in his preparation but knows this year's matchup is a completely different one from when he was in Denver.
"Last year's football game that I played in against the Patriots is almost irrelevant because it was with a different football team and a completely different situation," Osweiler said. "The one thing it does give me is some knowledge of how the Patriots schematically like to play, how they want to play. It gives me a little bit of information on their personnel, but these are two completely different football games, and that's how we're going to approach this." 
With Osweiler under center, the Texans broke a three-game losing streak (including postseason) to the Chiefs and earned their first win in the series since a 35-31 home victory on Oct. 17, 2010.
Osweiler said he planned to enjoy Sunday night's win for just a few hours over dinner before beginning his preparation for the Patriots on a short week. 
"Right after that, it's going to be watch this film, clean it up," Osweiler said. "I'll have a conversation with Coach tonight to put this game to bed and then tonight get a jump on New England. Every single hour, every single minute counts as extremely precious moving forward with the Thursday night game."
The (2-0) Texans are set to kick off against the (2-0) Patriots at 7:25 p.m. at Gillette Stadium. 

Brock Osweiler will quickly turn the page on his 2-0 start as a Texan and begin preparations for Week 3.

Osweiler's third start as a Texan comes against a familiar opponent. Last November, with the Denver Broncos he led his first fourth-quarter comeback against the Patriots, rallying from a 14-point fourth quarter deficit. Osweiler was 23-of-42 for 270 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the win. Having faced and defeated the Patriots last season, Osweiler is confident in his preparation but knows this year's matchup is a completely different one from when he was in Denver.
