    Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky The Texans are simply not good enough to turn the ball over three times and win on the road.

    After he was hurt but before he was pulled, Matt Schaub threw one interception and lost a fumble on a sack. Replacement Sage Rosenfels threw a pick into the end zone in the third quarter. The giveaways were far more than the Texans could survive in Minnesota.

    Poised to move to 4-4 after an 0-4 start, Houston slipped again and stands at 3-5 at the halfway point of its season.

    Houston's defense got an interception return for a score by Jacques Reeves, but he was also victimized on a big play pass to Bernard Berrian. So was Dunta Robinson, who flailed at a chance to bring Berrian down. The two catches were worth 102 yards and a score.

    The defense's red-zone troubles also continued - Minnesota scored touchdowns on two trips inside the 20, then kneeled out the clock in a third.

    On the NFL Network highlights I noticed the career records of the two head coaches prior to kickoff. Brad Childress and Gary Kubiak are both in their third seasons, and both were 17-22. Interesting, isn't it, how Childress is constantly mentioned as having a job in jeopardy and Kubiak never is?

    17-22 gets a contract extension in Texas, heck what was Hairboy Carrs record when they threw a few piles of money at him before they traded for MS
