Reading the coverage of the Houston Texans ...
With 62 career wins and 63 career losses on his résumé, Matt Schaub gets a chance to break even today, writes Dale Robertson of the Houston Chronicle. More importantly, it's a chance for Schaub to redeem himself after setting a record for consecutive pick-sixes and then losing his starting job. Case Keenum initially took over when Schaub was hurt, now Schaub returns with Keenum hurt.
A draft without a can't-miss quarterback prospect is good news for Keenum, writes the Chronicle's Randy Harvey.
Dennis Johnson is just as surprised as you are that he's starting an NFL game in his rookie season, writes Dave Zangaro of CSNHouston.com. Johnson said the Texans called in Week 2 to offer him a spot on their practice squad but Johnson declined the lateral move. Instead, he waited until a roster spot opened up, which wound up a good decision.
