    Here's some excellent stuff breaking down Matt Schaub's performance against Miami on Sunday, courtesy of Doug Kern of ESPN Research:

    • Schaub finished 22-for-42, for a .524 percentage. No QB with 40 or more attempts has won with a completion percentage that low in the past two seasons.

    • He did his best work throwing deeper passes.

    • The ESPN Insider preview indicated that Schaub would look to his "perimeter targets", namely Andre Johnson and Kevin Walter, to exploit a variety of offensive formations and mismatches. That turned out to be true, judging by his much-higher ratings down the sidelines.
