Houston Texans Beat Cleveland Browns
HOUSTON (AP) — Arian Foster rushed for 124 yards, Ben Tate ran for 115 and both scored touchdowns in the Houston Texans’ 30-12 win over the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.
The Texans (6-3), playing without injured receiver Andre Johnson for the fifth straight game, had a pair of 100-yard rushers for the second time in three weeks and moved three games over .500 for the first time.
The Browns (3-5) mustered only 172 yards, the third straight Houston opponent held under 200.
Colt McCoy, making his first NFL start in the state where he starred in college, was sacked four times and completed only 14 passes for 146 yards with an interception.
He got little support from former Texas teammate Chris Ogbonnaya, who started with running backs Peyton Hillis and Montario Hardesty sidelined. Ogbonnaya fumbled on his first carry, and finished with 28 yards on 13 carries.
