Houston Texans vs. Seattle Seahawks – Game Preview
The Houston Texans are trying to figure out what went wrong this past Sunday as they were embarrassed 30-9 by the defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens. It also marked the first time new acquired safety Ed Reed (Pictured on the Right) stepped on the field as a Houston Texans. That debut would be spoiled though as his play was limited and he could only manage three tackles in the loss.
This week does not get any easier as one of the hottest teams in the NFL comes to Houston. That team is the undefeated Seattle Seahawks, who are coming off of an impressive blowout win over the Jacksonville Jaguars with the final being 45-17. Their defense is widely considered the best in the league and with their recent performance against the San Fransisco 49ers a few weeks ago that praise is deserving. Seattle was able to shut out the high powered 49er's high powered offense and rattle dual threat quarterback Colin Kaepernick all game.
Now head coach Gary Kubiak (Pictured on the left) and the Texan's coaching staff have their work cut out for them this week as they are trying to avoid losing their second game in a row. That will be difficult considering all pro wide receiver Andre Johnson has been labeled a game time decision for Sunday's contest. Johnson has soreness from a shine bruise he suffered in last weeks loss to the Ravens.
Quarterback Matt Schaub is trying to get back on track as he had his worse game of the season last week. He was 25 for 35 but managed just 194 yards and threw an interception with no touchdowns. Schaub will need to do much better if he wants to hand the Seahawks their first loss of the year. Kickoff for this game is set for this Sunday at 12 pm from Reliant Stadium and can be seen on FOX.
