    Week 5 - Texans (34) vs Cardinals (30)

    The texans Started the game hot the score at half timewas 24-12, but due to turnoveers and bad special teams play the Cards quickly answered with 15 straight points in the 3rd quarter..

    Both teams scored on Pick-6's.... R. Brown intercepted a Schaub pass and ran it back 44 yards but the extra point was blocked, A few minutes later F. Bennett (cb) returned a Warner pass 98 yards for the touchdown, both of these happened in the 2nd quarter..

    Steve Breaston helped the cards get back in the game with an 82 yard punt return late in the 3rd quarter, and also a steve slaton fumble earlier in the 3rd lead directly to a Tim Hightower touchdown run...

    Texans newly acquired Wide Reciever Patrick Turner, used his big frame and helped the Texans late in the game after going down by three, he hauled in a 40+ yards pass to get them in position to score with only 20 seconds left in the game.... He is young and looks to be a big part of the Texans new high powered offense..

    Breaking News

    Rookie Beanie Wells broke his forearm in the 1st quarter of this barn burner and is out for an undisclosed period of time. This will hurt the cards going forward but they are lucky to have a powerhouse backup in Tim Hightower..

    He's out 8 weeks, sucks but Hightower is decent as a replacement. Great game, really killed myself by with a really bad 2 min stretch at the end of the 2nd. Thought I had it but great final drive by the Texans.
