Browns Vs. Texans Score: Arian Foster Strikes, Texans Lead Browns 21-3

Coming into Sunday's action, the Cleveland Browns led the NFL in not allowing big plays.  That will likely change today.  Ben Tate had already scored from 27-yards out, and now Arian Foster got into the act.  Foster gave the Texans their third rushing touchdown of the day - a 19-yard burst - giving the home team a 21-3 lead midway through the 2nd quarter.

Houston has already racked up 216 total yards of offense, 126 on the ground, and are averaging nearly 10 yards per carry in the first half.  Houston is 5-6 on third down have piled up 10 first downs to just for the Browns.  Cleveland has just 38 yards and Cleveland has shown no signs of being able to move the ball against Houston's defense.

While the Browns rely on Chris Ogbonnaya to carry the load, Houston has Tate and Foster.  Tate 66 yards on just four carries while Foster has 58 yards on 8 carries.  Even Matt Schaub has gotten into the act scoring on a 2-yard touchdown run.
