BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — WBZ NewsRadio's Adam Kaufman and Boston Globe NFL reporter Ben Volin are back with the Week 13 Red Zone Report, as the 10-1 Patriots head to Houston.

It was an encouraging win for the Patriots against another Texas team last Sunday, when they beat the Cowboys 13-9—but Volin said, they had the weather on their side.

"I think obviously, when you look back at that game, you have to consider the conditions," Volin said. "Dallas not being an inclement weather team, playing most of their games in a dome, Dak Prescott, it was his first game in weather since 2017 ... I would think that, if it were a nice day at Foxborough, the Cowboys probably would have punched the ball in the end zone, probably would have had more than nine points ... the Patriots can't count on playing every game in inclement weather."

Everyone's talking about the Ravens right now, to the point where some sports books give Baltimore better championship odds than New England. Earlier in the year, Kaufman and Volin discussed Kansas City as the top threat in the AFC to dethrone the Pats. But, is it Baltimore at this point?

"It's unquestionably Baltimore," Volin said. "They're the number-one team in the AFC, and I believe they're the number-one team in football right now."

Kaufman and Volin also talk about whether or not the Patriots will get back to their early-season high scores, wonder if Texans Head Coach Bill O'Brien can finally get a win against his old team, and make predictions for Sunday night's game.
