Texans Strike First With Owen Daniels' TD

The Texans finally got onto the board when Matt Schaub found Owen Daniels on a 4-yard touchdown pass in the second quarter. It was OD’s first touchdown of the season.

The Texans then came out and stopped the Dolphins after a long, long drive as J.J. Watt blocked the Dan Carpenter kick to keep the Dolphins off the board.

So far, it feels like the Dolphins are the ones with all the big plays, though the Texans touchdown was set up by Johnathan Joseph’s first interception as a Texan. Houston’s offense has been good but inconsistent in the early going.

Jacoby Jones, Arian Foster set up a pair of early Rackers FGs

That didn't take long. After a healthy Arian Foster proved he can run on the Dolphins front, Jacoby Jones made a great catch on a long Matt Shaub pass, that was tipped before it got to him, setting up a short Neil Rackers field goal to give Houston an early 3-0 lead.

On the Dolphins first series, Connor Barwin went right around Jake Long for a sack on Chad Henne, forcing a 3-and-out punt to Jones, who had a nice return past the 50. That set up another Houston drive culminating in a short Rackers field goal and making the score 6-0.

Foster already has eight carries for 31 yards while Jones just has the 31-yard reception. Andre Johnson has a quick two catches for 20 yards and Bryant Johnson had his first catch as a Texan, a 16-yarder. Matt Schaub is 7 of 10 passing for 84 yards.
