The Texans will stay far away from credenza-like NT Vince Wilfork, who helped limit Arian Foster to 46 yards in December. It didn't help Foster that the Pats jumped to a 28--0 lead, making Houston predictable. If the Texans' D is better, the O will go with a steady diet of Foster—particularly on stretch plays, gliding to the outside of the play-side tackle and bursting into a seam. That sets up play-action and deep balls to Andre Johnson, especially against CB Aqib Talib, who's nursing a hip injury.
