Curran: Patriots-Texans preview

FOXBORO - Been doing these types of previews for two years now and never once have I felt I was overlooking something by not doing a coaching matchup. This week? Gotta.

Bill Belichick vs. Gary Kubiak. Josh McDaniels vs. Wade Phillips. BelichickMatt Patricia vs. Rick Dennison. Those are the matchups and all three checkmarks are indelibly carved on the Patriots' side, especially since Belichick's been more involved with the defense. Whether it's preparation, motivation, situation, experience or in-game adjustments, there is no one thing that would make one say, "Yeah, I think Kubiak will have his guys in a better spot than Belichick..." If the stuff hits the fan for New England, they can survive. Houston? We saw December 10 how that went - a tap-out after 45 minutes. Onto more of the Xs and Os.
