The Texans were plagued by injuries on all sides of the ball, including their coaching staff. Not only are the Texans on their third string quarterback after injuries to both Matt Schaub and Matt Leinart, Andre Johnson missed the game with a hamstring injury, and defensive coordinator Wade Phillips was in the hospital after undergoing surgery on his kidney and gall bladder.

TJ Yates played well, completing his first seven passes, but the Texans struggled to sustain drives against the one of the leagues worst defenses.

Yates was 19-30 for 212 yards and 2 interceptions, Arian Foster carried the ball 16 times for 109 yards and a touchdown.
