Compare that to:

1 Denver Broncos 52.0%
2 San Diego Chargers 46.5%
3 Indianapolis Colts 43.9%
4 Green Bay Packers 41.7%
5 New Orleans Saints 41.7%
6 Atlanta Falcons 40.5%
7 Seattle Seahawks 38.8%
It's data that supports the crowd that's been telling us (for years it seems) that Schaub is good-to-very good between the twenties but not good in converting those fancy yardage and completion stats into points.

Hard to argue with the data.
Query: is this just for this season or over his career with the Texans?


Is it possible to have an offense that bends but doesn't break (into the endzone)?
