After throwing a pick-six in each of the last three games, several fans called for the benching of quarterback Matt Schaub. But even they were surprised by a tweet from the voice of the Texans saying Schaub had been traded.

Last night, Marc Vandermeer tweeted out, "Texans have traded QB Matt Schaub to Cleveland browns for wide receiver Josh Gordon and a third round pick in 2014 NFL draft."

About 15 minutes later Vandermeer tweeted out a retraction saying he had been hacked and was sorry for the craziness. Vandermeer has since taken steps to secure his account.

Off to San Francisco

Fans will be gathering tonight to cheer on the team ahead of their departure for San Francisco. The group is meeting at Discovery Green at 5:30pm for a pep rally before the big matchup. Eyewitness Sports Director Greg Bailey is heading out to San Francisco to cover the big game. Watch for his live reports on Eyewitness News and follow him on Twitter @GregBailey13
