The Texans will be hoping to get back on track this weekend when the Rams come to town, but it all hinges on quarterback Matt Schaub’s performance. Schaub, who has thrown some costly picks in recent weeks, needs to focus on avoiding the out routes that keep getting intercepted. Considering Schaub's recent inconsistency, Mike Florio says coach Gary Kubiak needs to be ready to pull him from the game if the problems continue or else the underachieving Texans could lose their season.
