After watching the Week 8 matchups, Scouts Inc. shares its 10 key observations:

1. The Texans showed great resilience: Not everything went as planned for the Texans in Buffalo. It looked bleak early on. QB Matt Schaub was somewhat erratic and losing TE Owen Daniels early in the game could have been devastating. But the Texans kept coming and in Daniels' stead, 10 players caught a pass from Schaub. Gary Kubiak took the ball out of RB Steve Slaton's hands because of ineffectiveness and Ryan Moats made the most of his opportunity. This defense also has come a very long way from early in the season and from previous seasons. In previous years, this is exactly the type of game that Houston would have lost. Times are changing for the Texans, but overcoming the loss of Daniels for the season will not be easy.
