Because Marshall Faulk and GMC asked, let us call our shot and answer that query as it pertains to your Houston Texans.

Could one of these two guys do a better job under center?

For Week 7, Marshall Faulk wants to know:

"To be Professional Grade, you must be prepared for every situation. Imagine your team facing its next opponent. You’re down by six, with 2 minutes left, on your own 30. I wanna know right now, what does your team do. Do they win, or do they lose?"

They win, of course! Well, so long as Ryan Fitzpatrick doesn't fumble the ball away like he did last week against the Colts. The Texans have been coming out slow in the first half of most games this season, but they tend to pick up the tempo and overall production in the second half. If Houston has the opportunity for a two-minute drill to win the game, I think they win three out of five times.  This is especially true against a defense with as many issues as Pittsburgh has right now.

What say YOU? Do the Texans beat the Steelers this week if it comes down to a two-minute drill on their own 30 yard line and down by six points?  Cast your vote in the poll, and join the discussion in the comments below.
