The spread climbed to 8.5 before falling back to its opening mark. The over/under total for this game hasn’t changed since opening at 43 points.

Houston is riding a three-game losing streak since starting the season 2-0. The issue with Houston hasn’t been its defense, which is allowing just 260.2 yards per game.

The problem has been quarterback Matt Schaub, who has nine interceptions with four straight games with an interception for a TD. Schaub has thrown for 1,366 yards and eight touchdowns, but the turnovers are overshadowing that. Running backs Arian Foster and Ben Tate have combined for 646 yards and one touchdown on the ground.
