Bengals vs. Texans halftime update: Field goals on parade, Texans lead 9-7

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

At halftime, the Texans have accumulated 250 yards of total offense compared to just 54 for the Bengals.

Although the Texans dominated in the total yardage column and shut down the Cincinnati Bengals' offense for the majority of the first half, they were unable to take advantage with a touchdown and settled for three fields goal to enter the locker room at halftime leading, 9-7.

Matt Schaub completed 19 of 26 passes in the first half for 144 yards as the Texans repeatedly marched down the field. However, one of his seven incompletions ended up in the hands of Bengals defensive back Leon Hall, who jumped an out route and returned the interception 21 yards for the only touchdown of the half.

Also finding success on offense for the Texans was Arian Foster, accumulating 86 yards rushing on 16 carries in the first half. Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton struggled, though, completing only 4 of 10 passes for 3 yards, forcing the Bengals to resort to four punts from Kevin Huber.
