T.J. Yates has a new challenge

Steve Smith,  Johnathan Joseph AP

Fresh off their first playoff berth in franchise history, the Texans have a new hill to climb.

They have to overcome a two touchdown deficit with rookie quarterback T.J. Yates behind center.

The Panthers lead 14-0 in Houston. There was a worry all week the Texans could experience a letdown, and that has been the case so far on Sunday.

While the Texans aren’t built to play from behind, they are facing a defense that has given up a lot of big leads this season. If Yates can’t pull it off, the Texans will fall behind in the race for a playoff bye.

    The Texans need a vertical threat to stretch the field. Every play is within 5 yards of the line of scrimmage. We need to sign Terrell Owens to help push the offense downfield especially since Andre Johnson will be out until the playoffs and there is no guarantee his hamstring will not get reinjured for a third time.

    Terrell Owens? What – Lance Alworth wasn’t available?
