Matt Schaub QB OAK Oct 25 '78
Matt Schaub completed 34-of-51 passes for 343 yards, two touchdowns, and one interceptions in Sunday's Divsional round loss at New England.
The boxscore couldn't be more misleading. Hankering for a rematch after the debacle at Foxborough six weeks ago, Schaub fell flat on his face for three quarters. Too often throwing short of the sticks or out of bounds, a hesitant Schaub struggled to pick up third downs or move the offense consistently. Not until the Patriots went into prevent mode up 38-13 in the fourth quarter did Schaub finally find the end zone, tossing just his fifth and sixth touchdowns of the past eight games. He clearly regressed down the stretch, showing that he can't stand toe-to-toe with the game's best signal-callers.
