EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - There are only two undefeated teams in the NFL and both have the distinction of being quarterbacked by players from the Philadelphia area. With Penn Charter's Matt Ryan leading the way, the Atlanta Falcons are 5-0. On Monday, Houston, guided by West Chester East graduate Matt Schaub, also improved to 5-0 with a harder-than-expected 23-17 win over the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium. The injury-depleted Jets made the game much more competitive than expected.

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.

It was two years ago, late on a Friday night in October, and West Chester East coach Joe Carroll was asked about what positives he saw, which was a difficult task after his club had been almost casually dumped by Downingtown, 42-14. "Well, I'm real proud of Matt," Carroll said of Matt Schaub, his green and gangly sophomore quarterback. "He's a young kid, but he's showing what kind of athlete he can be out there. " Schaub and his teammates had just been swept away by a team that would make high school gridiron history in Chester County by capturing the Ches-Mont League title, the District 1 crown, and the PIAA Class AAAA state championship.

During the fall, West Chester East senior Matt Schaub got to the gym at 6 a.m. every day to practice his jump shot. Schaub had to get in his court time early, because afternoons and weekends belonged to football - the sport that earned him a full ride to the University of Virginia before his senior season even began. Schaub was devoted to living up to his billing as the area's top quarterback, but even as he was leading the Vikings to their first-ever outright football title in the Ches-Mont League, he knew he needed some work before the basketball season began.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Matt Schaub admitted he enjoyed playing football relatively close to home on Monday night. The Houston Texans quarterback and graduate of West Chester East High School was ready to greet well-wishers for a brief visit after Monday's 23-17 win over a stubborn New York Jets team at MetLife Stadium. "It's fun to come to the Northeast, where I grew up and played. But we enjoy going on the road no matter where it is," Schaub said. Schaub enjoys playing anywhere this season, regardless of the venue.

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.

West Chester East coach Eric Anderson likes to refer to 6-foot-6 senior Matt Schaub as a guard - a luxury of a guard. In basketball terms, that makes Anderson a rich man. Last night, with Schaub pouring in 22 points from his off-guard position and David Hardy leading the way with a career-high 37, the Vikings demolished Coatesville, 80-61, handing the Red Raiders' their most lopsided defeat of the season before a sellout crowd at East....

West Chester East quarterback Matt Schaub takes five honors courses and maintains a 3.9 grade point average. Even with the time commitments that football practice, weightlifting and the academic load entail, Schaub manages to get to sleep by 10:30 p.m. After all, the junior is a growing boy at 6-foot-5 and 185 pounds. Despite the time-consuming schedule, Schaub has learned to manage his time well. At least one night a week, usually Thursday, he puts everything aside for 30 or 40 minutes to do something he really enjoys: watching videotape of that week's opponent.

John Mershon thought he would be safe at his SAT preparation course. There seemed to be nothing haunting inside the College Bound center in West Chester. All Mershon wanted to do was learn some big words and a few algebraic tricks, and be another slightly puzzled face in the crowd of teenagers getting ready for the biggest test they will ever take with a No. 2 pencil. But as soon as he walked through the door, Mershon saw an all-to-familiar ghost. On the wall was an oversized picture of Matt Schaub, a West Chester East and College Bound alumnus, along with newspaper clippings about Schaub's success in the course and his subsequent signing to play football at the University of Virginia.

One after another, West Chester East quarterback Matt Schaub's passes fell incomplete Friday night. Many escaped the grasp of his receivers while others were overthrown or underthrown. In all, Schaub, a senior bound for the University of Virginia, missed on his first 7 and 11 of his first 12 throws. But with his team down by two points to visiting Conestoga with 6 minutes, 32 seconds left in the game and facing a first-and-29 situation, Schaub fired a perfect strike to Richie Boyd for a 65-yard touchdown that gave the Vikings the 25-19 nonleague win. In many ways, Schaub was outperformed by his Conestoga counterpart, Gavin McCrory, who rallied the Pioneers from a 17-0 deficit to a 19-17 advantage.

ALEX HENERY was answering a text from a friend yesterday when a reporter approached the Eagles' kicker. The text? Ndamukong Suh needed a couple of tickets to Sunday's game at Lincoln Financial Field. Henery, the Birds' 6-1, 177-pound kicker, is a friend and former Nebraska teammate of Suh, the Lions' fearsome, 6-4, 307-pound defensive tackle. They were construction management majors in the engineering department, and had classes together. "He's a good guy," Henery said. "Those incidents - how I know him, that's not how he really is. I see him when I go back in the offseason.

FOOTBALL PLAYERS are used to piling on, but what happened to Matt Schaub yesterday was ridiculous. The Texans quarterback, who starred at West Chester East High, left the game against the visiting Rams with a right ankle injury after being sacked in the third quarter. And Texans fans cheered. Think about that for a moment. It's bad enough when fans cheer when an opposing player gets hurt, but to applaud when one of your own goes down is just lame. "For them to cheer about something like that, it just shows they have no class," Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson told reporters.

Here are my picks to roll - and get rolled - in Week 4 of the 2013 season.   Watch 'em roll Ben Roethlisberger, QB, Steelers vs. Vikings. Big Ben struggled to start the season, hampered by the lack of a running threat and the absence of Mike Wallace and Heath Miller. He got his tight end back last week and promptly passed for 406 yards against the Bears. On Sunday in London, Le'Veon Bell will attempt to restore hope in the running game. If your QB is on a bye, Roethlisberger has a great matchup against the secondary that just got torched by Brian Hoyer.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Tom Brady idolized Joe Montana as a kid in the Bay Area. Now he has surpassed his hero for postseason wins. Brady got his 17th, the most for any quarterback, in New England's 41-28 AFC divisional victory over Houston on Sunday. If Brady can lead the Patriots past Baltimore in next Sunday's conference title game, then win the Super Bowl, he will equal the 49ers' Hall of Famer for NFL championships. Brady has guided the Patriots to five Super Bowls, winning the first three; Montana was 4 for 4 in the big game, playing for Brady's hometown team.

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 - J.J. Watt swatted away passes, Arian Foster ran away from tacklers, and the Houston Texans did just enough to knock Cincinnati out of the playoffs for the second straight year. Matt Schaub made his postseason debut a successful one when Foster's 1-yard touchdown in third quarter helped the Texans to a 19-13 AFC wild-card playoff win over the Bengals on Saturday. Now comes the big test. The Texans (13-4) move on to the second round on Jan. 13, when they visit the New England Patriots, who beat them, 42-14, in Week 14. Shayne Graham kicked four field goals for the Texans, while Foster finished with 140 yards and became the first NFL player to have 100-yard games in each of his first three playoff games.

HOUSTON - The Houston Texans were looking forward to enjoying a bye this week before beginning their work in the playoffs as the AFC's top seed. Instead, a terrible month in which they lost three of four games dropped the Texans to the third seed. It has them in the exact same spot as a year ago, hosting the Cincinnati Bengals in a wild-card playoff game Saturday. The Texans wasted little time this week lamenting their missed opportunities, though, instead focusing on their next task.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Look out. That familiar sight is the New England Patriots romping through December, looking like a Super Bowl team. The Patriots rolled over Houston, 42-14, on Monday night, stamping themselves once again as the team to fear in the AFC - and making the Texans look like pretenders. Tom Brady threw for four touchdowns and 296 yards as New England manhandled the team with the league's best record. The Patriots (10-3), who already own the AFC East title, won their seventh straight and moved one game behind the Texans (11-2)

Here are my picks to roll and get rolled in Week 14 of the 2012 season.   Watch 'em roll Matt Schaub, QB, Texans at Patriots. It's always nice having a starter or two playing on Monday night, especially when it's your QB facing a lousy secondary. Schaub isn't the most consistent fantasy performer, but he's been sharp enough to trust against one of the NFL's passing doormats. BenJarvus Green-Ellis, RB, Bengals vs. Cowboys. The Law Firm is on a monster run, while the Dallas run defense is imploding.
