Default Houston Texans @ Kansas City Chiefs. 10/20. 3:25. CBS. **Official Gameday Thread**

Just in Case you forgot...


Quote:
The most opportunistic defense in the NFL and strong special teams have allowed the Kansas City Chiefs to overcome a mediocre offense for the second-best start in team history.

The Houston Texans haven't been quite as fortunate, with a glaring turnover problem weighing down its league-best defense and otherwise quality offense.

Kansas City (6-0) will look to capitalize on those issues Sunday when it hosts Houston, which will have third-stringer Case Keenum at quarterback over injured starter Matt Schaub as it looks to avoid its first five-game losing streak in nearly eight years.

Defense and special teams have accounted for 46.1 percent of the Chiefs' points, including five touchdowns. The 2003 Chiefs had seven TDs from the defense and special teams in their first six wins during a 9-0 start, the only one in team history better than this year's.

Husain Abdullah's 44-yard interception return for a score with 1:35 left helped seal a 24-7 home victory over Oakland on Sunday.

"It's something we talked about from Day 1, the scoring. There's equal opportunity in all three phases," coach Andy Reid said. "We wanted everybody to have their chance to score a touchdown."

Houston (2-4) isn't nearly as upbeat despite allowing 252.8 yards per game, easily the best mark in the NFL. The Texans' offense is averaging 395.7 yards, seventh most in the league, but they're scoring 17.7 points per game - the seventh-lowest mark.

A minus-12 turnover differential has been a big reason for that, as only the winless New York Giants at minus-16 are worse.

The Texans have committed 12 turnovers during their four-game slide. They haven't lost five in a row since a six-game skid Nov. 6-Dec. 11, 2005.

"Turnovers get you beat in this league and they're getting us beat on a consistent basis," said coach Gary Kubiak, who won division titles the last two years but may be on the hot seat with a 4-8 record since an 11-1 start last season.





Quote:
What I want to see:

Easy throws for Keenum early; let him get a rhythm

Last thing we need is to go "run, run, pass..punt" out there and hide him. Let Case get his feet wet with some screen passes, some short throws to Graham, Dre and Dre II, and of course, some easy tosses in the play action game. The offense will be able to go deep plenty, as we'll expect to see a lot of 8, maybe even 9 in the box.

Stuff the run and keep an eye on Charles all day in the pass game

He's one of the best backs in the league, and KC has made sure to get him the ball a ton thus far. Not only is he lethal in the run game, but is a legit weapon in the pass game out of the backfield. I think we need our boys to get Cush's best game, folks, to limit him.

Heavy dose of Foster and sprinkle in a little Tate

Have to make them respect the run. In order to take pressure off of #7, running the ball is one way to do so. Offensive line...GET TO WORK, FELLAS.
(O-Line, you gotta protect Case today, too! Newton and Brown..be on your best behavior)

Eliminate the miscellaneous TDs

Pick 6s, special teams TDs, fumble returns, etc. KC lives for these. I won't say the DBOK need to be PERFECT, but catastrophic mistakes have to be at a minimum.


Time to put an end to all this bs. No more losing streak, no more pick 6s, no more none of this garbage that we've all had to watch and endure the last 4 weeks. 1-0 this week is the goal, simple as that. This is a "we ain't dead yet" W if we get it...so let's get it! LET'S MUTHA****IN' GO, TEXANS!!

I'm optimistic too. I have no idea what case will look like tomorrow, but I at least I don't have a sinking feeling about our qb right now.

This optimism and feel good stuff can change really quick, but u do think case will do well.

I genuinely don't give a crap who is playing QB. I will support said player, praise them when they do well, and call them out when they don't. This is about the TEAM not the local boy.

I'm optimistic about this game also. I don't even care so much that they win as I do about how Case plays and the team plays around him. Hopefully this team has a pulse today. If there are signs of hope today then with the bye week the Texans could come out fresh and ready to do some damage in the 2nd half of the season. If not then we can start a draft thread and a who's available head coach thread.

Our run game and defense have to dominate. The special team can't give the game away either. Case Keenum will not turn the ball over like Schaub and Yates did. I also feel optimistic. I wish the game started at 12 noontime though. Waiting until 3:25 PM makes me feel more anxious.

Some interesting "thoughts."

Quote:
Deepi Sidhu @DeepSlant
Keenum: I try to play and prove everyone right that believed in me more than trying to prove wrong those who doubt me. #Texans
Quote:
Deepi Sidhu @DeepSlant
Kubiak says he doesn't know what he'll do (with a smile) when asked if he'll decide to kick if #Texans win coin toss.
Quote:
Much has been said about Arrowhead Stadium being the loudest outdoor sports stadium in the world, reaching 137.5 decibels in last week’s win over Oakland. The Texans need to take the home crowd out of the game early.

“I think we’ve practiced all week with the noise,” Keenum said. “Doing that and working with silent cadence I think is going to be big. We’ve really worked a lot on the operation. I think operation, being able to get us in the right play, calling plays in the huddle, getting us out of the huddle with the right personnel, snap count, and all of that stuff reduces penalties and kind of creates fluidity in the offense. So I think that’s going to be huge this week.”
We'll probably be seeing lots of the silent cadence today. To be successful, it requires discipline and coordination of the entire OL.........hopefully, something that we will see more of this week than we have seen in the past.
