Patriots DT Vince Wilfork vs. Texans' O-Line
Overall, New England's defense is not good (25th in the NFL). Against the run, they were ninth. The Texans, however, bring one of the best offensive lines to Foxborough. Pro Bowl guard Wade Smith and center Chris Myers must neutralize Wilfork, one of the most physically dominant defensive linemen in the NFL, in order for the Texans to be successful on the ground. And Houston’s success in the pass game is predicated off their ability to run the ball. (AP Photos)
