For Texans quarterback Matt Schaub, it was the very worst way to start a game what needed to be a bounce-back game.
Schaub was intercepted by 49ers cornerback Tramaine Brock, who returned it for a touchdown and a quick 7-0 lead.
It’s the fourth straight game Schaub has thrown a pick-six, the worst of which came during last week’s fourth-quarter implosion against the Seahawks. That’s a league record no one ever wants to break.
If he can’t turn things around quickly, he’s going to have to worry about losing more than just a game, as his job has come under question, and he keeps giving his critics ammunition.
