Matt Schaub makes a play to put Texans up early

The league’s top two defenses are teeing off on each other in Houston, and the Texans found the end zone first.

Matt Schaub just hit tight end Garrett Graham for a 31-yard touchdown pass, giving the Texans a 7-3 lead early in the second quarter.

Schaub is 7-of-10 for 136 yards so far, with a touchdown and an interception. But the pick went off the hands of several Seahawks defenders before safety Earl Thomas came up with it.

The Seahawks had been limited to 46 yards at that point, and 43 of them came on a  ridiculous tackle-breaking gallop by running back Marshawn Lynch.
