A day after the Houston Texans were eliminated from the AFC playoffs, Coach Gary Kubiak stood firmly behind his quarterback, Matt Schaub, who struggled somewhat down the stretch after a 12-1 start in the regular season.
He was 34 of 51 for 343 yards and two scores Sunday in a 41-28 divisional round loss to the Patriots, but he also had an interception and lost the ball on a sack once.
"I believe in Matt,” Kubiak said via the Houston Chronicle. “I have no doubts about him. He’s our quarterback. The team has to get better for us to take the next step.”
If the Texans are to take the next step in the playoffs, they will need more consistency from Schaub to direct an offense that has plenty of weapons in Andre Johnson, Arian Foster and Owen Daniels.
