NEXT-LEVEL: Among Matt Schaub's 70 incomplete passes through the Texans' first six games this season, only 13 of them were on balls that were underthrown (18.5 percent). Schaub underthrew his targets seven times (50 percent of incompletions) on Monday night including a second-quarter interception returned for a touchdown by Kelvin Hayden.
NEXT-LEVEL: Eighty-nine percent of Peyton Manning's pass attempts this season have come with at least five defensive backs on the field, by far the highest percentage in the league. Monday night was extreme even by those standards, as the Texans put five or more DBs on the field for EVERY ONE of Manning's pass attempts.
