Schaub Anxious for First Playoff Start

HOUSTON (AP) - Matt Schaub missed

Houston's 2011 playoff run with an injured foot.

 

Now the Texans' quarterback is

healthy and looking forward to his first playoff start Saturday against the

Cincinnati Bengals.

 

The wild-card playoff game offers

Schaub a chance to redeem himself after he threw two interceptions in last

week's loss to Indianapolis, which kept Houston from getting a first-round bye

and home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs.

 

He knows he has to do more in

preparation this week after a tough December in which he threw three

interceptions with just one touchdown pass as the Texans lost three of four

games.

 

Schaub has 4,008 yards passing

with 22 touchdowns and 12 interceptions this season. He threw eight touchdown

passes with three interceptions in the three games - all wins- before his

recent slump
