Browns Vs. Texans Score: Texans Take Early 7-0 Lead Over Browns

The Cleveland Browns are off to a less-than stellar beginning in Houston against the Texans.  Running back Ben Tate led an impressive first drive for Houston, capping it off with a 27-yard touchdown run, giving the Texans a 7-0 lead in the 1st quarter.

Houston took the opening kickoff and drove 82-yards on 9 plays, including 44 yards  on 5 carries on the ground.  The Browns made things worse for themselves on their first play from scrimmage after the touchdown when running back Chris Ogbonnaya fumbled after a 3-yard gain.  

It continued a streak for the Browns who continue to be the only team in the NFL without a point on their opening drive this season.  The Texans, on the other hand, lead the NFL in 1st Quarter scoring.
