A quarter that opened with a Johnathan Joseph 52-yard interception return for a touchdown was capped by a Owen Daniels touchdown pass and two Shayne Graham field goals to give the Houston Texans a 29-3 lead over the Baltimore Ravens at halftime.
In the Sunday-afternoon showdown from Reliant Stadium in Houston, the Texans have scored 29 unanswered points after surrendering an early 51-yard field goal to Ravens kicker Justin Tucker.
Despite the return of Terrell Suggs to the Ravens' defensive front, Texans quarterback has been able to weather the Ravens defensive attack, tossing two touchdown passes on the day through the first two quarters.
On the other hand, the Texans defense has been able to hold Joe Flacco and the Ravens offense at bay, as Flacco has been sacked for a safety and has been intercepted twice on the day. Flacco has completed just seven passes for 50 yards. Ravens running back Ray Rice has 35 yards on six attempts on the day.
Texans running back Arian Foster has rushed for 53 yards on nine carries thus far.
