The New England Patriots are back in action this Saturday, as they head to Houston to play the Texans in their second preseason game of the summer. 

The game will be on channel 4, WBZ-TV, and kickoff is set for 8:00 pm.

Tom Brady is expected to see some time in the first half, along with some other starters. Just about all of the team's top performers sat out last week's preseason opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Similar to the set up of last week's schedule with Jacksonville, the Pats have held joint practices with the Texans throughout the week.
