Matt Schaub – you’re damn right Matt Schaub is reason number 1. NEED I REMIND YOU about the 4 games in a row with a pick 6? Here’s our goal for this week, folks: throw an interception well down the football field. I am willing to settle for that.
The Rams’ pass rush – have you seen the Texans pass protection over this season? Look at what St. Louis has up front – Robert Quinn, Chris Long, Michael Brockers. These are guys who can get after it. The Texans had some pass protection breakdowns vs the 49ers (who were playing without Patrick Willis and Aldon Smith).
- I think some of the Rams skill guys can give the Texans some issues – they have quickness and create mismatches. I’m focusing on 2 guys here – Jared Cook and Tavon Austin. Cook is a very tough mismatch, and the Texans are covering him with some combination of Joe Mays and DJ Swearinger. Not good. Austin hasn’t been great so far, but I can see him using his quickness against this defense and creating some big plays.
