Special teams coach Scott O’Brien coached under Belichick for the Cleveland Browns in 1994, and has coached special teams for the Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore Ravens, Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers. Matt Slater will be the unit’s captain once again. Slater, who is the son of Hall of Fame lineman Jackie Slater, has been rewarded for his special teams abilities with three consecutive Pro Bowls invitations. Place kicker Steven Gostkowski, another player that has spent his entire career with the Patriots, had the best season of his career in 2013. He converted 93 percent of his field goals, made all of his extra points and led the league in field goals made (38) and points scored (158). The team did not fare as well in punting, where they were middle of the pack, but Ryan Allen was just a rookie and did manage to land 29 punts inside the 20-yard line. Prediction The Patriots have dominated the AFC East, winning 11 of the last 13 division titles. With Tom Brady under center and Bill Belichick under the cut-off sleeves hoodie, New England is the clear favorite to win the division. If the team can stay healthy, the Patriots have an excellent shot of improving on last season and heading back to the Super Bowl. JIM ROGASH/GETTY IMAGES SPORT Tom Brady/Bill Belichick
