Texans looking good early vs. Browns

Every week, the Houston Texans look more and more like a playoff team. This week they’re doing it early.

Midway through the first quarter against the Cleveland Browns, the Texans took a 14-0 lead on the strength of two rushing touchdowns: One a 27-yarder from Ben Tate, and one a beautifully drawn up two-yard quarterback draw out of an empty backfield from Matt Schaub.

After the second touchdown, the Browns got a great kickoff return from Josh Cribbs — only to have Cribbs get a 15-yard penalty for grabbing the facemask of a Texans player trying to tackle him. But they did get a 50-yard field goal from Phil Dawson.

Houston now leads 14-3.

UPDATE: Arian Foster added a 19-yard rushing touchdown to make it 21-3 Texans.

LATER UPDATE: A field goal on the last play of the first half made it 24-3 Texans at halftime.

    The Browns would struggle in that women’s lingerie league.

    Hillis is just a cover up for the rest of that pathetic team. And I’m a Browns fan.
