PREVIEW

Osweiler eyes continued success against Chargers

Brock Osweiler doesn't have much experience as an NFL starter. The good news for the Houston Texans is that their inconsistent quarterback does have a history with the San Diego Chargers, who visit Houston on Sunday.

Osweiler won twice last season against the Chargers when he played for Denver. He believes his familiarity with San Diego (4-6) will help him this week despite his move to a new team.

"The one thing it allows me to do is ... I know their personnel a little bit," Osweiler said. "I know what (defensive coordinator John) Pagano wants to do schematically. Obviously, I'm expecting some game plan adjustments that maybe I haven't seen before, but certainly I feel like San Diego is more of a common opponent in my eyes."

Osweiler and the Texans look to rebound this week after yet another road loss against Oakland in Mexico City. The Texans (6-4) hope to improve to 6-0 at home on Sunday and hold onto first place in the AFC South when they host a San Diego team which has lost two of three and is coming off its bye .

"Our chemistry is growing with every single day we spend together and obviously my knowledge of the offense is getting better and better each week," Osweiler said.

Chargers coach Mike McCoy has a history with Osweiler . He was Denver's offensive coordinator when Osweiler was drafted in 2012 and the coach is impressed with the progress he's made this season.

"I know the attention to detail, the way he prepares," McCoy said. "He's going to be the biggest critic of himself, but a talented player. The more you play with your teammates, the more you play in your system ... the more comfortable you are going to feel the better you are going to play as time goes on, and that showed on Monday night."
