The Texans will be happy to have a reprieve here against a St. Louis team that really isn’t all that great. The Rams have quarterback troubles, as QB Sam Bradford really isn’t proving that he is a man capable of keeping this job in the long run, and there really has yet to be a running back step up and take command. RB Zac Stacy had a great first start against the Jacksonville Jaguars last week, but running for 78 yards against the Jags and running against this vaunted Houston front seven are two totally different things. Remember too, that St. Louis just allowed 20 points to the Jags, and it could have been a lot worse if not for a couple goal line stands. That’s bad news for a defense that has been ripped to shreds publically by Head Coach Jeff Fisher all season long.
Here’s the good news for the Rams: This might feel like a bit of a home game. QB Matt Schaub is Public Enemy #1 right now in Houston, and the fans are burning his memorabilia and calling for his head. It’s completely warranted right now, as he tossed three picks on national television on Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers, including throwing a pick six for the fourth straight game. Remember too, that the first pass that he threw of the season was returned to the seven-yard line, so that’s nearly one turnover for a touchdown in every single game this year. However, Schaub has been playing against a brutal schedule of late, and this game, as we said, is a tremendous reprieve. Tensions will start high in Houston, but the air will be let out of the building and everyone will take a collective sigh of relief when this team comes back to where it should and beat the Rams by two scores.
