    This part is confusing:

    "A combination of inaccuracy from Schaub and slippy, trippy footwork by Keshawn Martin gifted Jennings his two interceptions"

    One INT was due to KMart slipping and the other was due to Schaub overthrowing the ball to AJ on the crossing route and Jennings making a good read, breaking off KW's deep go route on our left side line.

    This second interception is another example of the classic two-man route; one running a deep route while the other running a crossing route.

    The Bears were in cover 3 with Tillman dropping back deep and not following AJ.
    Schaub saw that the single deep safety stayed back so he correctly went to the crossing route underneath by AJ.
    Too bad, he overthrew AJ; Jennings anticipated the routes very well and made a good play on the ball.

    Yeah, I tought it was pretty accurate & straight forward. Not sure where the confusion is coming from.

    I thought that strange too. 4 carries is a big contribution?

    Really wish they gave someone other than Foster more carries.

    When is Tate back?

    Forsett had the 25 yard run to the Chicago 3 yard line that set up Schaub's touchdown pass to Foster.

    For a non-Texans fan, it would sound like KMart was involved in both INTs.

    Instead of:
    "A combination of inaccuracy from Schaub and slippy, trippy footwork by Keshawn Martin gifted Jennings his two interceptions"

    I think it will be clearer like so:
    "Slippy, trippy footwork by Keshawn Martin gifted Jennings with his first interception and Schaub's inaccuracy provided him with his second pick".

    ...

    Furthermore, I don't think either one was a gift.
    Jennings made two good plays on his own, especially on the second one.

    I think he made a good play on the one to Martin, but the one to Andre, the ball totally got away from Schaub & sailed. If it were on target, Jennings wouldn't have been in the play.
