Texans running back Arian Foster led the way on an impressive first-quarter drive as the Texans scored the first point of the 2013 NFL postseason.

On a drive that started with the Texans pinned at their own 5-yard line, Foster carried three times for 23 yards and also caught an eight-yard pass as Houston marched down the field.

Texans tight end Owen Daniels also had a couple of catches, but the drive stalled when Daniels dropped a pass on third down, and Houston had to settle for a Shayne Graham 48-yard field goal.

Midway through the first quarter, the Texans have taken a 3-0 lead.

UPDATE 5:12 p.m. ET: Early in the second quarter, another Graham field goal extended the Texans’ lead to 6-0.
