Power Poll: Houston Texans rule


For the second straight week, the Texans are a unanimous No. 1 in the Power Poll. Where did our experts rank your favorite team? **More...**

The 31-year-old Beck signed with Houston in May after he was cut by the Washington Redskins. He beat out undrafted free agent Case Keenum for the No. 3 spot behind Matt Schaub and T.J. Yates.

The Texans (4-0) turned to Nolan after Quintin Demps fractured his left forearm in Sunday's win over the Tennessee Titans. Nolan was a seventh-round draft pick by Houston in 2009, and spent his rookie season on injured reserve with a broken wrist. He played in 30 games between 2010 and '11, but was waived at the end of training camp this year. He was waived by the Miami Dolphins last month.

Houston plays the New York Jets (2-2) on Monday night.
