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.
