They had some speed bumps along the way, including losing Rob Gronkowski (who I consider one of the top 10 players in football) early, but the New England Patriots eventually pulled away from the Houston Texans 41-28 in New England on Sunday.

Can Baltimore stop the Patriots from getting to the Super Bowl?
