This was one of the worst years for quarterback play in history for the Houston Texans. The quarterback combined to lead the team to two wins as they totaled 4,183 yards passing.
The Texans trio of quarterbacks, consisting of Matt Schaub, Case Keenum and T.J. Yates, were outperformed in passing yards by nine individual quarterbacks in the league.
Schaub was 219-of-358 for 2,310 yards in 10 games with a 61.2 completion percentage. He passed for a team-high 10 touchdowns and 14 interceptions, also a team-high. He was sacked 21 times, and his longest pass of the season was for 46 yards.
As for Schaub, he just didn’t have “it” this season, and it really showed on the field this past season. The former starting QB lost his starting job following Week 6. He returned to the starting lineup in the final two games of the season as Keenum was unable to play due to a thumb injury.
Schaub made two second-half appearances in a reserve role in Week 11 and Week 14 when Kubiak benched Keenum due to poor play. Schaub most likely has played his final snap in a Texans uniform.
Best Moment: The near comeback win in Jacksonville where in the second half, he passed for 198 yards and one touchdown. He was 17-of-29 in two quarters.
Worst Moment: Setting an NFL record with four consecutive games with a Pick Six.
