In a scary moment during Sunday night's Houston-Indianapolis game, Texans head coach Gary Kubiak collapsed on the 24-yard line as the teams were leaving the field at halftime. Kubiak, 52, stayed on the ground for several minutes, surrounded by medical personnel including Texans head trainer Geoff Kaplan. After a few minutes, he sat up, grimaced, and spoke. Kubiak then lay back down so he could put on a stretcher and taken to a local hospital. The Texans didn't say what was wrong with Kubiak, but did say he didn't have a heart attack.

HOUSTON - Matt Schaub made his first playoff start last Saturday and helped lead the Houston Texans to a win. But he did make a key mistake, throwing an interception that was returned for a touchdown. The West Chester East graduate knows that he will have to be much better if the Texans expect to win at New England in a divisional playoff game Sunday. "He's going to have to play at a high level, but we all are," coach Gary Kubiak said. "You know what I mean? We've got a job to do around him. " Schaub's No. 1 goal on Sunday is to help the offense score touchdowns instead of field goals when it gets in the red zone.

HOUSTON - Matt Schaub missed Houston's 2011 playoff run with an injured foot. Now the Texans' quarterback, who starred at West Chester East High School, is healthy and looking forward to his first playoff start Saturday against the Cincinnati Bengals. The wild-card playoff game offers Schaub a chance to redeem himself after he threw two interceptions in last week's loss to Indianapolis, which kept Houston from getting a first-round bye and home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Matt Leinart and Matt Schaub stood next to each other for the final few snaps, Leinart in a sling and Schaub in a walking boot. The scene spoke volumes about Houston's quarterback situation and playoff chances. If the Texans are going to make the playoffs for the first time in franchise history, they probably will have to do it with a third-string quarterback. Leinart injured his throwing shoulder Sunday at Jacksonville, overshadowing Houston's 20-13 victory against the inept Jaguars.

On March 22, the Houston Texans announced that the "Matt Schaub era" had begun for the eight-year-old NFL franchise. That day, the Texans gave their second-round choices in both this year's and next year's draft to the Atlanta Falcons for the former West Chester East quarterback. After signing a multiyear, multimillion-dollar contract with the Texans, they designated him No. 1 on the depth chart before he even took a snap. The team said it would trade five-year quarterback David Carr.

The Houston Texans waived quarterback David Carr, the first draft pick in franchise history 5 years ago, and running back Domanick Williams. The Texans never have had a winning record, and Carr often was the scapegoat. He completed 60 percent of his passes, but also threw 65 interceptions and was sacked 249 times in five seasons. Houston hoped Carr would flourish under new coach Gary Kubiak last season, but the Texans went 6-10. Williams, formerly Domanick Davis, is Houston's career rushing leader with 3,195 yards.

Some of the video being viewed by the Eagles' defense this week is rated PG 49. Here's how the rating system works: The letters stand for a pretty gruesome performance, and the 49 represents the number of points allowed by the Eagles' defense in a lopsided loss to the Denver Broncos last November. "Yeah, it's painful to [watch], there's no question about that," defensive coordinator Jim Johnson said when asked if he was examining the game film from that Eagles defeat. Just so you're not too confused, the Eagles will not play the defending NFC West champion Broncos in their opener Sunday at Reliant Stadium.

David Carr of the Houston Texans has spent much of his NFL career looking up - while on his back. When the fifth-year quarterback opens the season at Reliant Stadium against the Eagles on Sunday, he will be looking to keep his feet on the ground and his back off the field. Carr, 27, a starter since the franchise's inception in 2002, has been sacked 208 times in 60 career games. Last season, he was sacked 68 times, the most in the league. The first pick in the draft out of Fresno State in 2002, Carr has run for his life in his first four seasons.

The Houston Texans will hire Denver offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak to take over the worst team in the league and help decide what to do with the first pick in the draft. Texans owner Bob McNair said during a news conference last night that the hiring won't be completed until later in the week. The Texans couldn't negotiate a contract with Kubiak until the Broncos were eliminated from the playoffs. McNair's announcement came about an hour after Denver lost to Pittsburgh in the AFC Championship Game.
