Excuse me if I'm wrong, but I can't recall seeing a Texan in this type of article:


Texans QB Matt Schaub vs. Panthers DE Julius Peppers

I would say that Schaub needs to throw for 225-plus yards and avoid getting sacked more than a couple of times if the Texans are to win this contest. Peppers has to put constant pressure on Schaub and get some sacks. Obviously it is up to the Houston offensive line to protect its quarterback, but it's also up to Schaub to make plays regardless of the pressure. If Schaub can buy time to throw, he'll find Andre Johnson and make some big plays.
