The Texans continue their hot start with a win in Miami against the floundering Dolphins. In a game that Arian Foster made his return, his productivity was not needed in the end result. Foster did finish the game with 10 carries for 33 yards, in his season debut.
Houston opened the game with a pair of field goals by Rackers, and found the end zone in the beginning of the second quarter with a touchdown pass from Schaub to his tight end Owen Daniels. Matt Schaub put together a very effective and efficient game, completing 21 of 29 passes for 230 yards and two touchdowns.
Miami was able to cut the lead 16 to 13 after a field goal in the middle of the fourth quarter, but Schaub answered, mounting a drive and hitting his star receiver Andre Johnson for a 23 yard touchdown pass. The Texans defense played well again, creating a couple of turnovers and sacking Henne a two times. Jonathan Joseph, Houston’s big free agent pick up was able to pick off Henne on the Dolphins’ twenty yard line setting up Houston’s first touchdown early in the second quarter.
The Texans’ offense has enough talent and firepower to score against anyone. The key to their season will be their defense who has struggled in the past. So far this season the defense looks improved and if they can play this kind of consistent strong defense the Texans will definitely make the playoffs for the first time in their history.
