For the final preseason game before the regular season kicks off, the Houston Texans and Minnesota Vikings planned on playing their backups as most NFL teams tend to do.
Houston got on the board first through a quick 83 yard drive that ended in a three yard run touchdown for Justin Forsett. John Beck threw a quick pitch to DeVier Posey for an 80 yard TD near the end of the second quarter. Past the two scores, Jonathan Grimes had the best chance to add to the Texans' lead but ended up being stuffed on a 1 yard run right on the edge of the endzone.
A long drive by the Vikings near the end of the first quarter ended up leading to a field goal, with Sage Rosenfels tossing a 58 yard touchdown to Devin Aromashudo to add to the Vikings score -- that would be the final score of the first half.
Despite being down on the scoreboard, Minnesota has gashed the Texans defense on the ground so far with 132 yards on the ground at halftime. Rosenfels has thrown for 74 yards while being pressured heavily by the Texans defense.
