The Texans are slightly more than two months away from making the top selection in this year's draft.

They got there for a number of reasons, but turnovers factored heavily in what went wrong for the Texans this season.

Rather than count down 10 plays that shaped the 2013 season, we're counting down the 10 interceptions that did so. We've already analyzed the one Brian Cushing returned for a touchdown in Week 1 (10), the first pass of the season (9), the first one Case Keenum threw (8), T.J. Yates' pick-six (7) and continue today.

6. Matt Schaub's first pick six of 2013

A pick six is a tremendously damaging play, but in Week 2 it to be a mistake Schaub could handle.

One week removed from leading a steely comeback effort against the San Diego Chargers, Schaub threw his first interception for a score in the 2013 season. Alterraun Verner caught it in the fourth quarter and zoomed 23 yards to to the end zone, giving the Titans an eight-point lead.

Schaub didn't wilt from the pick-six. He recovered his poise and led a game-tying drive, capped by a two-point conversion run by Arian Foster. The Texans won that game in overtime. It remains their most recent win.
