Case Keenum: A-
After Case Keenum was named the Texans' starter for this week, fans exploded into a frenzy of speculation.
As the debate progressed about whether it was the correct decision, two schools of thought emerged.
One claimed he would light the world on fire, breaking out in Tom Brady-esque fashion. The other believed Keenum would crumble under the pressure, unable to overcome the noise and pass rush of Kansas City.
In the end, neither side was correct.
Keenum wasn't unbelievable, nor was he terrible, but he did play a very good game that shocked most fans around the NFL that considered themselves realists.
Keenem remained poised, took shots downfield, was accurate and extended plays with his feet. In the second half, however, the Chiefs dialed up the pass rush, and due to the offensive line's inability to do anything, Keenum was constantly under pressure.
He was unable to lead the Texans to victory late in the game, but his performance was excellent and startling for a rookie quarterback making his first appearance in the NFL.
He clearly outperformed the Matt Schaub who had shown up the past four weeks. He definitely needs to be given another shot to start.
