FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - Vince Wilfork's biggest challenge when he lines up against the Houston Texans' powerful offense Monday night could come before the ball is even snapped.
Will they pass or run?
The offensive line isn't likely to give the New England Patriots tackle and his defensive teammates much of an indication.
Wilfork said Thursday that the Texans do a good job of showing the same look whether they're going to run or pass. Then, once Matt Schaub hands the ball off to Arian Foster or throws it to Andre Johnson, the hard work continues for the Patriots (9-3) against the Texans (11-1) in the matchup of teams with six-game winning streaks and designs on first-round playoff byes.
