Houston Texans: 2013 Week 8 NFL Power Rankings (#16)

Last week: 16 (+0)

Record: 2-5

I was obviously skeptical about Case Keenum, an undrafted 2nd year player who had never played a snap. However, he did some nice things in the 1 point loss in Kansas City, completing 15 of 25 for 271 yards and a touchdown against arguably the best defense in the NFL. He did some bad things as well, particularly his struggles reading the blitz, but that could improve with experience. I’ve defended Matt Schaub for a while and I don’t believe he’s as bad as he looked to start the season, but Keenum has done enough to deserve another look after the bye. I’m skeptical he’s the long-term answer, but at 2-5, it’s worth playing him until he fails.
