Rams 38, Texans 13

Texans' Schaub hurt as Rams roll

Related News/Archive

HOUSTON — The Rams had a simple chant in the locker room after their rout of the Texans.

"2-and-0, 2-and-0," coach Jeff Fisher said his team repeated.

Sam Bradford threw three touchdown passes, St. Louis added scores on defense and special teams, and the Rams stunned mistake-prone Houston to win their second straight after a three-game skid. "I think everyone totally bought in," Bradford said.

Rookie linebacker Alec Ogletree gave St. Louis a 38-6 lead, returning an interception of T.J. Yates 98 yards for a touchdown. Yates was in after Matt Schaub — who had pickoffs returned for TDs in a league-record four straight games going in — sustained an apparent right ankle injury.

Some fans cheered while Schaub was down, angering Houston's players. "For them to cheer about something like that, it just shows they have no class," said receiver Andre Johnson, the longest-serving Texan, in his 11th season.
