TEXANS DOWN 10

TEXANS: First possession of 3rd Quarter, 3-and-Out with Schaub 1-2 on two short passes to OD

PATS: Second possession of 3rd Quarter, 3-and-Out with Brady going 1-3 for 5 yards

TEXANS: Second possession of 3rd Quarter, Schaub goes 4-5 for 56 yards, including two 20+ yard passes. Fumbles but recovers it. Throws INT.

TEXANS STILL DOWN 10

PATS: Third possession of 3rd Quarter, Brady goes 3-3 for 26 yards and TD, Ridley rushes three times for 37 yards. Texans D forces NO third downs.

TEXANS DOWN 17

TEXANS: Third possession of 3rd Quarter/Start of 4th, Schaub goes 2-4 for 16 yards, Foster rushes three times for 2 yards. Went for it on 4th down, incomplete.

PATS: First possession of 4th Quarter, Brady one play for TD.

TEXANS DOWN 24

In these series, Schaub was 7-11 for 73 yards and an INT. Not a good quarter, but not an "OMG this was the worst quarter of football ever played!" thing either.

Brady on the other hand, along with the entire NE offense, pretty much made the Texans D toss his salad. They racked up 170 yards and 21 points on 19 total plays from scrimmage. Through FOUR possessions they only had TWO third downs.

Sorry, but one INT by Schaub doesn't come near the lack of nut-up that the defense had in that quarter.
