This time last year, the Houston Texans were the hot pick in the AFC; seemingly every expert had them in the small group of 2-3 contenders for the Super Bowl. This year? A lot more quiet.

For a team that won their division handily and advanced to the Divisional Round in the playoffs before getting eliminated by the New England Patriots last season, their fall from prognosticators' good books this off-season seemed odd.

The deciding factor in how far Houston ultimately goes this season could be Matt Schaub's play behind centre.

He's proven to be a good quarterback but not yet a Super Bowl-level quarterback.

That doesn't mean he can't get there, but he's running out of time and needs to prove he's not theTexans' missing link to reaching a Super Bowl.
