The Texans are sticking with Ryan Mallett as their starting quarterback. Coach Bill O'Brien said given the short week it was especially important to have consistency at the position. "He knows he has to play better," O'Brien said. "He's gotta do a better job of throwing the ball more accurately, he's gotta be more controlled in the pocket. Don't turn it over. Get us into the right play."

I went back and watched all of Drew Brees' throws, and it's hard to say how much he was affected by his shoulder because Dallas' pressure forced so many quick, short throws. And he got hit on most of his early attempts downfield. Brees didn't thrown downfield much, but when he had time to step up and deliver late in the game, he was effective. Sean Payton said they wanted to throw downfield more early but pressure prevented it.
