Texans vs. Titans score update: Houston up double digits at halftime

US PRESSWIRE

The Houston Texans cruised through the first half of their game against the Tennessee Titans and are up, 21-3, at halftime.

In what some might view as an AFC South division mismatch, the Houston Texans (10-1) are up, 21-3, over the Tennessee Titans (4-7) at halftime of their game Sunday in Nashville, Tenn.

The first-place Texans jumped out to an early lead with two touchdowns in the first quarter. The first came less than three minutes in on a 54-yard pass from quarterback Matt Schaub to Lester Jean to set the tone early. Schaub finished the half 15-of-24 passing for 167 yards. Andre Johnson is the game's leading receiver so far with 56 yards on five receptions.

After a Tennessee field goal from Rob Bironas, Schaub threw for his second touchdown of the afternoon, this one a five-yarder to James Casey to make it 14-3 after a quarter.

The only offense of the second quarter came when linebacker Tim Dobbins intercepted a pass from Titans quarterback Jack Locker and returned the ball to the Tennessee 3-yard line. Arian Foster took care of the rest with a short run to make it 21-3.

Locker is just 8-of-22 going into halftime, and while the teams are even at 55 yards apiece on the ground, Houston has a 167-89 edge on passing plays.
