HOUSTON (AP) - The last time the Houston Texans faced an inexperienced quarterback they forced second-year pro Jake Locker into five turnovers and sacked him six times in a win over the Titans.
Two weeks later, they'll get a shot at Andrew Luck, the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft last April. He's thrown for 3,792 yards for the Colts, but leads the AFC in interceptions, and has lost five fumbles.
He's also been sacked 32 times, and will now have to deal with AFC sacks leader J.J. Watt. Coach Gary Kubiak noted that Luck is challenging because even if the defense gets to him for a sack, his size makes him difficult to bring down.
