Texans defense leads perfect path

HOUSTON — The Texans have always been known for their prolific offense under Gary Kubiak. Now, Houston has a defense capable of making just as many plays, and the formula has the team off to its best start ever.

Danieal Manning and Kareem Jackson returned interceptions for touchdowns, and Matt Schaub threw two TD passes in a rout of the Titans.

Though Houston was outgained 325-297, it broke open a close game after halftime and forced three turnovers.

Houston's offense ranked among the top five from 2007-11, but the team didn't win its first division title until after Wade Phillips became the defensive coordinator before last season.

"It's a nice luxury to have, when you see them make those turnovers," Schaub said. "It creates such a lift for us."
