After two ragged possessions to begin the preseason game against Miami the quarterbacks put on a show that was reminiscent of recent regular seasons in which the Texans have been one of the most prolific offensive teams in the NFL.

The first two times they got the ball the Texans were in first-game preseason form with an interception a holding call a sack and a tackle for loss. But they rebounded from the slow start to produce three touchdowns and a field goal in a 24-17 preseason victory over Miami.

Matt Schaub Case Keenum and T.J. Yates combined for 26-of-38 for 326 yards three touchdowns and a 110.2 rating – their second consecutive impressive performance.

The Texans made mistakes on both sides of the ball. They’ve still got players with a lot to learn. That being said it’s no secret that coach Gary Kubiak offensive coordinator Rick Dennison and quarterbacks coach Karl Dorrell are feeling confident about Schaub Yates and Keenum.

In two preseason games the top-three quarterbacks have connected on 57-of-83 for 636 yards five touchdowns and one interception.

“We’ve been throwing the ball really well” Kubiak said. “We’ve been doing that in (training camp) too.”

In victories over Minnesota and Miami Schaub has played fewer than two quarters. He’s completed 13-of-16 for 126 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

When he retired near the end of the first quarter against the Dolphins Schaub was 8-of-11 for 92 yards. He threw a 15-yard touchdown pass to tight end Owen Daniels after suffering an interception when rookie receiver DeAndre Hopkins fell making a cut.

Speaking of Hopkins the splendid first-round pick from Clemson he left the game with a concussion.

“I thought something was wrong because he was woozy” Kubiak said. “I told them to get him out of there. We didn’t want to take any chances.

“He’s fine now but we’ll put him through the concussion protocol obviously.”

Hopkins caught two passes for 22 yards in the first quarter. At the end of the quarter when Keenum relived Schaub Hopkins caught a 13-yard pass. When he was tackled Hopkins’ helmet bounced off the ground.

Keenum replaced Schaub against the Dolphins. In the Minnesota game Yates took over for Schaub. Kubiak said he wants both players to play the same roles to help in his evaluation of them for the backup job.

“Case made some really good throws” Kubiak said. “T.J. was very solid. They’re both doing their job and they’re making it hard on me.”
