The Houston Texans will start their third quarterback in three weeks as rookie T.J. Yates will start in place of an injured Matt Leinart, who was taking over for an injured Matt Schaub. The Texans were still able to pull out the win against the Jacksonville Jaguars last Sunday, but they'll be facing a team in the Atlanta Falcons who can score points and play defense. The Texans offense struggled to pass the football last week and will once again likely rely heavily on Arian Foster to run the football and their defense to keep it close.
The Falcons head into Reliant Stadium riding a two game winning streak and looking to stay in the hunt to win the NFC South. Quarterback Matt Ryan has gotten back some of his weapons in the passing game and the Falcons defense has been able to limit teams offensive output. The defense will look to try and slow down a Texans rushing attack and make rookie quarterback T.J. Yates beat them with his arm.
Game Date/Time: Sunday, December 4; 1:00pm ET
