Texans Vs. Titans At The Half: Arian Foster's 180 All-Purpose Yards Gives Houston 20-0 Lead

Arian Foster is officially back as the superstar tailback for the Houston Texans. A misdirection play-action pass from Matt Schaub to Foster led to a 78-yard scamper and score for the Texans as the Titans have had no answer for the Houston offense.

For the day, the tailback from Tennessee has rushed the ball 13 times for 71 yards and 5 receptions for 119 yards andthe score. Matt Schaub has had a proficient day thus far, going 13-18 for 220 yards and two scores, the first a 10-yard pitch and catch to Joel Dreessen that finished off a 7-play, 87-yard drive early in the second quarter.

Its been a struggle for the Titans' offense, as the Texans have slowed down the highly-paid Chris Johnson to just 16 yards rushing on 9 carries. Matt Hasselbeck has been unable to get it going either, throwing for only 57 yards in the first half and a floundering duck of an interception was hauled in by Texans' safety Danieal Manning.

Tennessee will get the ball in the second half.
