Browns Vs. Texans Final: Franchise Best Rushing Day Pushes Houston To 30-12 Victory

The Houston Texans offense might now be confused for the old rushing attacks from the now defunct Southwest Conference, as the greatest team rushing performance in franchise history propelled Houston over the Cleveland Browns to an easy 30-12 win.

Those 263 rushing yards came primarily from the legs of Arian Foster and Ben Tate. Foster led the way with 124 yards and Tate put up 115 yards, as each scored a rushing touchdown in the first half to help put the game out of reach for Cleveland early.

Some could argue that there's no rushing duo in the league better than Foster and Tate, as playing in Gary Kubiak's zone-blocking scheme has allowed Matt Schaub to not put all of the pressure on his shoulders. Schaub had a quiet day today, as he passed for just 119 yards but did contribute with a 2-yard rushing touchdown as well.

With the loss, Cleveland falls to 3-5 and Houston goes to 6-3.

Browns Vs. Texans Halftime Update: Houston Runs It Up On Cleveland, Lead 24-3

Breaking news, the Houston Texans can really run the football. Okay, it might not be breaking news but for a team that had been known for their proficient aerial attack their running game is proving to be lethal for their opponents.

Anyone who has run the ball for Houston has scored a touchdown thus far. Ben Tate has 4 carries for 66 yards and a 27-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. Arian Foster has 10 carries for 64 yards and a 19-yard touchdown run in the second quarter. Even Matt Schaub was able to score on a 2-yard plunge.

The end result? 132 yards rushing and a 24-3 lead over the Cleveland Browns in Reliant Stadium.

The defense has given the Browns tons of trouble thus far, causing a Chris Ogbonnaya fumble on the Browns first possession of the game and Quintin Demps picked off Colt McCoy in the second quarter which successfully shut down drives for the Browns.

Cleveland will receive the ball in the second half as the Texans look to push their record to 6-3.
