Kansas City Chiefs
The Texans’ playoff hopes were dealt another crushing blow on Sunday, but there may have been a silver lining in the loss.
With quarterback Matt Schaub unavailable with a foot injury on Sunday and backup T.J. Yates doing nothing to instill confidence in his abilities, the Texans turned to undrafted second-year quarterback Case Keenum to lead the offense. The situation wasn’t ideal by any standards, but the University of Houston standout didn’t disappoint.
Keenum made his regular-season debut on the road in a raucous Arrowhead Stadium against the NFL-best Kansas City Chiefs. He lost dynamic running back Arian Foster in the first half, was without reliable tight end Owen Daniels, who is on short-term injured reserve for a few more weeks, and had to deal with a defense that leads the NFL in sacks (35) and ranks third against the pass (194.7 yards per game). Yet, Keenum withstood the pressure — both figurative and literal — and actually impressed on the day.
Keenum was accurate, efficie...

The Houston Texans are at a crossroads. They are now 2-5, sit three-full games behind Indianapolis in a division that was supposed to be theirs, and are now playing musical chairs at the quarterback position. Incumbent starter Matt Schaub was off to the worst start of his 10-year career in 2013, setting an NFL record by throwing four “pick six” interceptions (interceptions...
Texans quarterback Case Keenum threw for 271 yards and a touchdown with zero interceptions in his NFL debut Sunday at Kansas City.Fantasy Spin:Keenum also lost a fumble late in the fourth quarter with Houston trailing 17-16, but overall it was a strong performance for the rookie considering the situation he was thrown into -- facing one of the NFL's top defenses in one of the...
Texans quarterback Matt Schaub and linebacker Tim Dobbins were inactive for Sunday's game against the unbeaten Chiefs after both were ruled out with injuries earlier in the week.
Case Keenum was making his first NFL start in place of Schaub, who wasn't ready to go after sustaining right ankle and foot injuries in last week's loss to St. Louis.
Dobbins was out with a...
Houston Texans coach Gary Kubiak “loves” Case Keenum according to several people close to him and has long been raving about the raw potential in the former un-drafted quarterback.
With Matt Schaub injured and unable to play -- and already losing his grip on the starting job anyway -- Keenum could end up starting more than one game sources said with the staff having been eager...
The Case Keenum era starts today in Houston, and if the quarterback performs well, he could get an extended look as the Texans starter.
Jason La Canfora is reporting that Texans head coach Gary Kubiak loves Keenum, and has long been raving about the “raw potential in the former un-drafted quarterback.”

KANSAS CITY, Missouri—The Texans were down quarterback Matt Schaub and 2nd year player Case Keenum was introduced to the fearsome Kansas City defense this Sunday afternoon. Keenum was sacked 5 times and completed 15 of 25 passes overall. He managed to stay interception free though and tossed a touchdown pass, and the injury of star […]

Case Keenum was good, not great against the Chiefs. In Gary Kubiak’s mind he didn’t do enough to win the job.
“Matt’s our starting quarterback,” Kubiak said of the veteran Schaub. “Case played this week.”
Kubiak said he would re-evaulate the position during the Texans’ bye week.
Case Keenum gets his first NFL start for the Houston Texans on Sunday, and, if his quarterbacks coach is right, there are many more to come.
Texans quarterbacks coach Karl Dorrell seems to think very highly of Keenum, who was the team’s third-string quarterback entering the season. Dorrell even drew some lofty comparisons for Keenum, noting some similarities between him and another...
Absolutely nothing is going right for the Houston Texans this season.
Locked in a five-game slide where most of quarterback Matt Schaub’s completions have been Pick-Sixes, the team was dealt a crushing blow when linebacker Brian Cushing was lost for the season in a 17-16 loss to Kansas City. That was coming off a weekend where the city’s most iconic and beloved football figure...
Case Keenum played well against the Kansas City Chiefs, but did he play well enough to wrap up the job? Gary Kubiak doesn't seem to think so.
From Bleacher Report
The Houston Texans are floundering. Prior to Sunday’s game in Kansas City the team had dropped four in a row, and to be fair only won the first too due to some pretty crazy late game heroics. They didn’t...
First the Houston Texans were playing without quarterback Matt Schaub and now they will be playing the rest of the game against the Chiefs without their star running back Arian Foster. According to the Associated Press

Jeff Fisher seems to think Sam Bradford is a franchise quarterback, but I don’t see it. Bradford looked like Matt Schaub with this pick 6 interception to Captain Munnerlyn.
Beano Cook just got a huge dead boner.
There is no doubt that one of the most annoying things about NFL coverage is when people rank quarterbacks (especially when throwing around that ELITE label). Does it even matter at all? What purpose does it serve if someone has Matt Schaub ranked ahead of Sam Bradford? That **** is just a waste of time…and I always fall for it anyway because...
