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.
