FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) _ Tom Brady threw for four touchdowns and
New England routed Houston 42-14 on Monday night for the Patriots’
seventh straight victory.

The Patriots (10-3), who already own the AFC East title, moved
one game behind the Texans (11-2) for the conference’s top seed and
snapped Houston’s six-game winning streak.

Brady had scoring passes of 7 and 4 yards to Aaron Hernandez and
37 to Brandon Lloyd in the first half, and 67 yards to Donte’
Stallworth in the third quarter.

New England has won 20 straight December home games. Houston,
which has clinched at least a wild-card berth, leads Indianapolis
by two games in the AFC South and plays the Colts twice in the
final three weeks of the season.
