Texans Know They Need To Shore Up Defense

HOUSTON (AP) - The Houston Texans notched the biggest comeback in franchise history, scoring 24 unanswered points in a 31-28 win over the San Diego Chargers. It showed both how good and how bad the team can be.

Coach Gary Kubiak said Tuesday that his team dug a "big hole" and was fortunate to escape with a win in Monday night's opener.

Houston was sluggish to start, scoring on just one of their first six drives and giving up four passing touchdowns to Chargers quarterback Phillip Rivers.

Kubiak liked his team's ability to rally behind quarterback Matt Schaub and a defense that put the clamps on Rivers. But there is room to grow, especially in the secondary where Kubiak said free safety Ed Reed is getting closer to a return.
