HOUSTON (AP) -- Another trip to New England awaits the Houston Texans, and coach Gary Kubiak knows what his team has to do to have a chance against the Patriots in the second round of the playoffs.

“We had a rough trip up there last time, but we’ve earned our right to go back,” Kubiak said. “We want to go back and play a heck of a lot better than we did.”

The AFC East champion Patriots trounced the Texans 42-14 at Foxborough on Dec. 10, and Houston gets another shot after beating Cincinnati 19-13 in Saturday’s wild-card game.

The Texans did enough to beat the Bengals, but they have to figure out a way to score touchdowns against a New England team that averages 34.8 points per game.
