Troy Taormina-US PRESSWIRE

If Week 11's emotionally draining win over the Jacksonville Jaguars taught fans anything, it's that the Houston Texans will always rely on their superstars in big moments.

Fans know Matt Schaub, Andre Johnson and J.J. Watt are the lifeblood of the team. No team can win in the NFL without its superstars.

It's easy to get caught up in the spectacle of Schaub running the two-minute offense, or Watt tossing an offensive guard aside and sacking a quarterback.

The Texans, however, are more than just a team who leans on its superstars. The roster has been built by general manager Rick Smith on a solid foundation of quality starters and reserves.

The Texans have a number of players on the roster who play crucial roles for the team every week. Down the final stretch of the season, certain players' roles on the team will become even more important.
