Case Keenum will start vs. Jaguars

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

Gary Kubiak announced that the Texans will stick with Case Keenum despite benching him in Week 11.

The Houston Texans dropped an eighth consecutive game on Sunday and in the process, benched second-year quarterback Case Keenum, but the team is sticking with the undrafted passer in Week 12, as head coach Gary Kubiak told reporters on Monday that he's sticking with Matt Schaub in a backup role.

Kubiak told reporters that he has "total confidence" in Keenum, despite yanking the him in favor of Schaub late in the team's loss to the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.

Keenum, 25, has made four starts for the Texans in 2013 and has an 0-4 record in those games, completing 55.6 percent of his passes for 992 yards, eight touchdowns and one interception. Schaub has tossed eight touchdowns and nine interceptions in 2013, starting in six games.

The Texans are in the top 10 in both total offense and defense, but rank in the bottom 10 in points scored and allowed. Particularly frustrated has been wide receiver Andre Johnson, who was involved in a heated sideline argument with Schaub during the team's Week 11 loss.
