The Houston Texans allowed only three sacks of quarterback Matt Schaub through their first five weeks, all Texans' wins. But in Sunday night's 42-24 loss to the Green Bay Packers, Schaub was sacked on the Texans' first two possessions, leading to two quick Texans punts. Schaub was sacked three times total against Green Bay.

The Washington Post writes that the loss exposed many problems for the 5-1 Texans, and that head coach Gary Kubiak stressed the importance of protecting Schaub better going forward, starting in Week 7 when the Texans host the Baltimore Ravens:

"Some undisciplined things that we did, that's our biggest concern today," he said. "But I think across the board all three phases wasn't good enough. Today we've got a lot of corrections to make and lots of soul searching to do, especially with this team we've got coming in here this week. It wasn't one thing. It was a bunch of things."

The Texans and Ravens meet at noon CT on Sunday in a game televised by CBS.
