Texans hammer Colts
Huge Houston win
HOUSTON (AP) - Arian Foster ran for a team record 231 yards and
scored three touchdowns to lead the Houston Texans to a 34-24
victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.
Foster's sensational opening-day effort allowed the Texans to
end a six-game losing streak against Peyton Manning and the
defending AFC champions.
Foster, an undrafted rookie who spent most of last season on the
practice squad, had 33 carries in gaining the most yards by a
Manning completed 40 of 57 passes for 433 yards and three
touchdowns. He threw a 10-yard TD pass to Dallas Clark with 4:54
left to cut Houston's lead to 27-17.
But Foster ran for 41 yards on the Texans' next series and
capped his day with an 8-yard TD run.
