Matt Schaub: C+
You know the saying, "The stats don't lie"? In many cases, it's almost always true.
But when it comes to Matt Schaub's performance against the Rams, it's completely wrong. Schaub's numbers, which appear to be halfway decent considering Schaub missed much of the second half with an injury, do not tell the full story about his performance.
Schaub was hesitant on many of his plays, throwing short when he needed to go deep. He was afraid to challenge the weak Rams defense, and when he came under pressure, he unsurprisingly folded.
Schaub did not have a miserable game as he has had in recent weeks, but he did nothing to help the Texans.
T.J. Yates: D
Once Schaub went down with a leg injury, it was T.J. Yates' time to shine—his time to show that he can lead the team if Schaub is ever benched.
Yates, though, failed to impress in his most important game since 2011. In fact, he was downright bad. He threw two interceptions—one of which went for a pick-six, of course.
All in all, Yates looked inexperienced and unsure of himself and certainly did not look like he was ready to take over the Texans.
