Saturday night in Foxborough, the New England Patriots failed to dominate the Houston Texans as expected. But, the Patriots did emerge with a victory over the Texans — the Pats won 34-16 in the AFC divisional playoff game.

The Patriots now move onto their record-setting sixth-straight AFC championship game next Sunday.

WBUR's Sports and Society Reporter Shira Springer was at Gillette Stadium and joined Weekend Edition Sunday to recap the Patriots' win.

This segment aired on January 15, 2017.
