Matt Schaub QB OAK Oct 17 '78
Matt Schaub completed 29-of-38 passes for 262 yards and an interception as the Texans held off the Bengals in the Wild Card Round.
Schaub's lone box-score mistake came midway through the second quarter, when Bengals RCB Leon Hall jumped a checkdown route intended for James Casey and returned it to the house for a 21-yard pick six. It was actually a sensational display of ball skills by Hall. More egregious by Schaub was a poorly-placed third-and-goal pass intended for Andre Johnson at the end of the second half that should've gone for an easy touchdown. The Texans will head to the Divisional Round with a still-struggling quarterback.
