The article focuses on the football team Houston Texans. Quarterback David Carr has had a solid year despite poor pass protection and learning a new scheme based on three-step drops. Carr showed his maturity in the offense in the victory over the Cardinals. OLB Jason Babin is closing the season on a strong note after being slowed by a shoulder injury for much of the year. Rookie Jerome Mathis has been great as the kickoff returner, but he hasn't played receiver much because he missed a lot of early practice and playing time.
