Houston (CBS Houston) – Case Keenum will make his first NFL start this weekend against the Kansas City Chiefs. With the starting role comes added spotlight, something Keenum is ready to take on.

“It was something that I’ve always wanted. Like I said yesterday, it’s something that I’ve worked for for a very long time and to be in the same city that I’ve been in for the last six or seven years, it makes it even more special.” Keenum said Thursday.

Gary Kubiak decided to start the second year quarterback because he felt the team ‘needed a spark’. T.J. Yates and Matt Schaub can both be described as mild mannered but Keenum approaches the game with a level of enthusiasm not always seen from the quarterback position.

“I’ve tried to bring a lot of energy this week. I’ve tried to concentrate on having fun. I know this is all of our jobs and we all care a whole lot about our jobs and being successful and sometimes getting too wrapped up in that and pressing a little more. I think we need to make sure to remember to have fun because we’re playing a game. ” Keenum said.

His first start will come against one of the toughest defense’s in the NFL and in the loudest stadium in the NFL. In order to be successful Keenum will need all the help he can get.

“Us up front, Arian (Foster), Ben Tate, we have to get the run game going and get it going early and often. That’ll make his job a lot easier. When it’s time for (Keenum) to pass the ball, we’ve got to sit him down up front and give him all the time he needs to make it happen” Brown said.
